I've decided to join in the rainbow scrap challenge this year & today i made my blocks. I just made it in the nick of time seeing as today is the last day of January.
I've had in mind for quite a while to make a bow tie quilt & they were my chosen blocks for this years challenge. They are 6-1/2" blocks & if i make 6 every month i'll have 72 & hopefully a good sized quilt. :)
My scrap basket didn't have a lot of blues & what was there i wouldn't have been able to get enough out of to make the blocks so my blues drawer was raided. That is quite ok with me as my intention is to chop up all those horded fabrics into scrappy quilts.
Then then the other day a good friend mentioned about a quit group she attends is making churn dash blocks to swap. They are choosing a colour a month for 6 months. As i love churn dash blocks is was a no brainer for me to also make them up today.
Can't wait to see what February's colour is.
I'd seen this quote today & thought it appropriate for me. I needed to take that first step back into sewing so here's hoping that today's sewing effort will lead to a 2nd step, then a 3rd & so on.
You have made a good start on your RSC journey, bow ties are a great block to work with. xx
You’ve been very productive with your blue blocks. RSC is good fun. I have to use fabric other than scraps as well, but that’s fine with me. Good luck in finding and maintaining your sewjo.
I love your blue bow tie and churn dash blocks. You are doing great...one step in front of the other.
Love both the bow ties and the churn dashes....
Absolutely that's a great quotation! Gotta start somewhere and these blue blocks were a good start. I don't have much pink, 'cause I'm not a fan of it, but I should get a few blocks.
Two great block designs for this years RSC..
How convenient to be making Churn Dash blocks in blue as well..
I believe February will be/is Pink.
I saw this on her Home page . ."I am going to start with a tiny pink block for February"
Move on - one step at a time!
Lovely choices! Both are great blocks.
