Pink is the color for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I've scoured the bins of pink strips and squares and pulled some pink scrappy chunks from various drawers. Blocks were made and parts and pieces assembled. I'm getting anxious to finish up a couple of scrappy projects from last year, so I jumped ahead and made some extra parts and pieces as well.
First project: use up some 1.5 inch strips to make 49-patch blocks. I already had one pink block from last year, and I was able to add 2 more. I'm waiting for the end of the year before I decide what to do with these blocks.
I started making these quarter square log cabin blocks this year using reproduction fabrics. My original plan for these blocks was to make a straight set quilt, but maybe I'll reconsider and set them on point.
One of last year's RSC projects was based on Windblown Wishes, a quilt from Diane D. Knott's book, Scrap Quilt Secrets. I decided to do an outer border of HSTs, and planned to make the HST parts each month as part of this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Since I had the box of 2.5 inch scrappy strips out anyway (for the pink HSTs), I went ahead and finished up all the remaining colors needed to finish the border. I'm not sure when I'll get to start assembling this, but at least the HSTs are ready to go.
This is another Rainbow Scrap 2017 project that still needs attention. The scrappy pinwheel blocks need sashing and cornerstones; the cornerstones are more pinwheel blocks.
And now the cornerstone pinwheels are complete, so as soon as I cut the sashing, I can start assembling this RSC project!
