I never get tired of making scrappy quilts! I added a new project to my Rainbow Scrap Challenge list last month in an effort to use up more of the strips filling my 2 inch scrap bin.
Carolina Chain is a Bonnie Hunter pattern. It's a variation on a 9-patch block which results in light and dark chains criss-crossing the quilt. This makes a great leader-ender project, as the cutting and piecing are quick and easy. I'll keep making these for the next year or so until there are enough for a quilt. Hopefully, they will put a dent in the 2 inch strip bin!
I also paired up some random 2 inch scraps into 4-patch blocks. These go into the Parts Department and will eventually become part of another scrappy quilt.
Tiny Tuesday blocks are great for using up small scraps. I'm glad I tried my hand at intense flip triangles for Sally's pink piglet. I chose the pink and brown fabric for the piggy body as it reminded me of chocolate-covered bacon!
No pink scraps were harmed for another Burgoyne Surrounded block. I only need three more blocks for the BS quilt, so I'm looking through scrappy chunks of multi-colored prints on white backgrounds for block inspiration. I love these little birds, so decided to give them their own block.
Ditto for this multi-colored fish print. It is now part of the Burgoyne scrappiness. Only one block left to make, and I'm having trouble deciding on colors and fabrics. It probably won't be this month's RSC color, light blue, but who knows where inspiration will lead?!
