Rainbow Scrappy Red

  I have not been doing much new Rainbow Scrap Challenge sewing this year.  I have been trying to make at least two Sugar Loaf blocks (aka Flashes of Brilliance/APQ October 2915) each month using the RSC colors.  This month's color was red, so I had fun trying to put together light and dark scrappy strips for the blocks.

I guess this selection of fabrics didn't provide high contrast, but I like the result anyway.

When I look at this block out of the corner of my eye, I'm reminded of Pizza Margherita!

And with the leftover bits, I made some Easy Breezy blocks.

Looking forward to a new color challenge for next month's blocks!


  1. Hurray for Red! These are magnificent!

  2. Those sugar Loaf blocks are just beautiful--and I like that lower key first one a lot...beautiful work on these hugs, Julierose

  3. After watching yours and Cathy's Sugar Loaf blocks, I'm sorely tempted! Maybe for next year's RSC?

  4. Fabulous reds, make fabulous blocks. I like the low contrast block.

  5. I like both versions of the block. The first one feels so much more traditional. It is fun to play with colors. Looking forward to purple for June.

  6. I love both blocks! So pretty - and your Easy Peasy blocks look great! Have a great week-end.

  7. beautiful blocks!
    boy your piecing is perfection.

  8. Both of those blocks are great. I love RED!
