The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for April was green. As I played with green scraps (and yardage) I realized I had some OLD, DARK green fabrics. Bonnie Hunter's scrappy Trip Around the World seemed like a fun way to use up a bunch of green fabric that was past its "use by" date. This is a mere 16 blocks; I have fabric for an additional 20 blocks cut and waiting!
During last year's RSC, I was totally inspired by Cathy Tomm's scrappy rainbow log cabin quilt. I didn't realize I'd soon be attempting my own scrappy log cabin blocks, but I found I needed some log cabin therapy earlier this year and pretty soon I had a batch of blocks. I threw these at the design wall to see the overall effect; I'll eventually tweak the placement of blocks and colors. I did decide the quilt needs to be 10 blocks wide instead of the 9 blocks pictured.
As luck would have it, DH and I were treated to a double rainbow as we drove out of town this afternoon!
