Not Neutral About Neutrals

The Rainbow Scrap challenge for August is to use neutral or low volume scraps in our projects.  Not all of my RSC projects will benefit from an injection of neutral scraps, but I think I can still find enough design opportunities for the month!

I have a decent collection of 2 inch strips that can become 4-Patch blocks and Pinwheel blocks.  If I use up all these strips, I still have more neutral fabric chunks that can be cut up and used up.

There's also a good-sized stash of neutral selvages that can be turned into Rail Fence blocks.

And then there's the stack of components that need to be assembled into 9-patch blocks for the Summer Star Scrappy Sew Along.

I think there will be plenty of stitching inspiration for the month!  For more inspiration, check out the RSC link-up today at Angela's Soscrappy blog.

  7. Rail fence blocks are the Fall Basic TOBE blocks for Treadle On. You could make some for the exchange. Neutral string blocks are good, too. I just saw a quilt, using neutral strings, with a pop of red, for some of the corners. Great quilt (she sent me the pattern, too).

  13. You've got some great neutrals! I think they are underappreciated in general. They really can add a lot of dimension to a quilt. And look at all of your sections ready to sew! You've been busy as usual. ;)

  14. Your blocks look good in your lovely variety of neutrals!
    I've been trying to come up with something for this month, but since I use scrappy neutrals in all my RSC blocks anyway, I can't think of anything special...
