The Rainbow Scrap Challenge focus on blue is about to come to an end. My stash of blue strips, squares and chunks has thinned and my RSC projects have edged closer to completion. On the other hand, working with blue fabric this month inspired me to pull out a blue and white UFO and start another blue and white scrap quilt. I think I'll be working with blue for more than just the month of July!
One RSC project I've been working on this year is 4 patches. These were just a simple way to use up bits and pieces of strips and squares left over from other projects. I don't have a plan for these right now; I think I'll just hold on to them until inspiration strikes.
Another RSC project has been Windblown Wishes blocks from Diane Knott's book Scrap Quilt Secrets. When I finish all the rainbow colors, I'll have 16 ten-inch blocks. I think I will stop there and turn them into a wall hanging. Unless different inspiration strikes!
Now that all the RSC projects have their blue additions, I'll be back to working on my blue & white Sawtooth Star and Uneven 9-Patch quilt (aka Big Blue Monster). I've decided the BBM needs a border of Flying Geese blocks, and I still need to make about 40 of them. And when that's finished, I'll be working on Diane's Summer Star Scrappy Sew Along - in my case, another blue and white scrap quilt!
