A lot of scrappy stitching happened this week. Not all of it was Rainbow Scrap Challenge related, but scraps got used and goals were reached.
The RSC color for January is light blue. I pulled several 1.5 inch strips to make a 49-patch block using Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trip Around the World technique.
I also stitched up 2 quarter log cabin blocks using repro light blue fabrics.
Best of all, I finished stitching all the string blocks needed for my memory quilt version of the Spring Clean Quilt. I needed to make 144 blocks for this version of a string star. Earlier this week, I decided I was tired of the stringy mess on the sewing table and pushed myself to finish stitching the remaining blocks. If you've ever stitched a long-term string project, you know how messy all those strings and bits can get! As soon as I finished the blocks, I tidied up and snapped a picture of my milestone. Now I need to assemble the blocks, but that won't come until a little later this year - there are other projects clamoring for the space on the design wall.
I haven't had a chance to look at this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge link-up yet, so I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone was stitching up this week!
