The color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is red. For this week's Scrap Happy Saturday I've made up 19 more Twinklers to add to the collection. I now have 30 blue and 29 red 6 inch Twinklers that will go toward a Quilt of Valor. To see what others are doing with their red scraps this week visit the party going on at SoScrappy's blog.
Here's an idea of how I am going to alternate the red and blue blocks. And at top and bottom I will add some of the Tall Stars blocks we are making this month for Block Lotto.
There is also a Big Blowout Block Drive for QOV going on at Alycia Quilts. You get your choice of two blocks. I chose the blue/yellow block so I didn't have to use a foundation. I've been saving my foundation fabric for the Heartstrings challenge that is coming up soon - black and white string quilts with your choice of center color if you are making the entire quilt.
So far I've made 35 blocks- 7 chances at winning some fabulous prizes being offered! 35 is probably my limit but you never know...there's plenty of time to make more. Deadline is Oct 30.
Now I think I'll be canning tomatoes and spaghetti sauce all day and may also get some green beans frozen. And tonight the grandkids will probably beg to play some games. I don't think I'll get much sewing done.
