The first Saturday in April means it's time to focus on Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. This month's challenge is to use scraps in shades of yellow and gold. Not all my current RSC projects need yellow or gold, but I'll have fun digging through the scrap bins anyway.
I started with the 49-patch blocks - a project I started last year. I had one yellow block already made, so I added another yellow block and a gold block. Since my Rainbow Scrap projects tend to focus on bright colors, the gold scraps are usually neglected. I was happy to use a few of them for this block. Maybe I should make another gold block just so this one doesn't feel like the odd man out!
I also pulled some chunks from the repro fabric bin and made these quarter square log cabin blocks. I did some math ahead of time when I started making these blocks, so I know I need at least 5 of each RSC color in order to get a decent-sized quilt at the end of the year.
From the "You Never Know What Will Happen" department: I volunteered to attend a work-related event this morning (you know - making brownie points by working on a Saturday 😇) and met a group of quilters by happy accident! The quilters were utilizing another meeting room down the hall from where my work event was taking place. I happened to walk past their room, and of course, when I saw sewing machines being set up I had to investigate. Turns out they meet there every month, bring a pot-luck lunch and spend all day sewing. When they found out I was also a quilter, they invited me to join them next month. I'll be looking forward to that, for sure!
