For this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge stitching, I dug into the last of the yellow scraps and made some small building blocks.
It only takes 2 inch strips and an Easy Angle ruler to make scrappy pinwheel blocks. I have a design in mind for these, but I'm waiting for all the RSC colors to finish up before I start assembling anything.
The last of the yellow 2 inch strips and pieces got assembled into 4-patch blocks. No specific plans for these, but I'm sure inspiration will strike at some point.
I also tried my hand at making two more Burgoyne Surrounded blocks.
The yellows don't balance out too well in this block, but I think it will be OK when combined with more blocks in a quilt.
I think this one balanced out a little better. I was inspired by Cathy's Burgoyne blocks; Cathy was inspired by the pattern here. If you are intrigued by this block, I encourage you to give it a try. Choosing the fabrics is fun and the cutting and piecing are not difficult - not quick, but not difficult!
I've enjoyed all the yellow fabric play this month, but my yellow scrap bins are pretty empty and I'm ready for a new color. To see more yellow scrappiness, check out the weekly Rainbow Scrap Challenge link-up.
