Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Scrap Bin

It's a new month and a new color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  This time our fearless leader Angela has chosen the color brown and encouraged us to use up the scraps in the brown bin.  She added an accent color of pink, so the combo of pink and brown scraps should lead to some fun inspiration!

For my part, even though I have a healthy brown scrap bin, I won't be adding a lot of new blocks this month.  Since my 2016 RSC plans involve finishing some projects carried over from 2015, I just don't need a lot of brown for my current projects.  I do have a few UFO's that prominently feature brown, which may come out to play, but only if I finish a few other things first.

One RSC project that does need more brown are the Sawtooth Stars.   I've prepped several more stars, including several in pink and brown.  Once these are prepped, it's easy to use them as leader-enders while stitching other blocks.

I finished one star already (bottom) and added it to the pile from last year.  

Since my brown scrappy playtime will be somewhat limited this month, I'm looking forward to the Saturday RSC linky parties to see what everyone else is creating!

  10. Lovely fabrics in your sawtooth stars. I do understand about finishing UFO's. Using my scraps and finishing UFO's is my goal for 2016. I hope you have a happy Mardi Gras.

  11. Angie I'm making stars also this year, I don't particularly like brown and wondered what to do about my stars but having just seen yours, which are beauties, I think I can get myself together and get sewing!!

  12. Glad that you are finishing up. It feels good to cross things off the list now and then. Best of all, it makes room for new projects later -- guilt free.
