Most of my sewing time in August was wrapped up in completing a Sew Along, so I didn't spend much time playing with neutral scraps for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
However, I really wanted to see if I could make a Burgoyne Surrounded block using neutral scraps.
I don't know if this block will fit in with all the rainbow-colored Burgoyne Surrounded blocks, but I'm sure happy with how it turned out!
I made five additional Pinwheel blocks for my collection.
That brings my total of neutral Pinwheel blocks to fifteen. It's almost time to make a quilt from these three-inch blocks!
A few weeks ago, I shared a picture of a quilt made by Alex Anderson using neutral fabrics. I've admired that quilt for years, and thought about trying to make it just by studying the picture (there's no pattern in the book featuring the quilt). Thanks to some Google-searching, I discovered the quilt pattern is included in a "vintage" Alex Anderson book.
There are several fun quilts in here, but I'm all about the Stars and Pinwheels quilt (Alex is resting her arm on it in the book cover shot). I won't be starting the quilt any time soon, but it's definitely on my Bucket List!
All good neutrals must come to an end. The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for September is orange. Here's just a sample of some orange scrappy strips that will get made into Pinwheel blocks and Four-Patch blocks.
