A Time to Finish


January through November of this year I've been making Kaleidoscope blocks as one of my projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.    Each month I made a block in the color of the month, a block in the color of the month plus the previous month and a block of the color of the month plus its complement. 

And I've been using crumbs for the corners. 

I now have 36 - 12 inch kaleidoscope blocks. 

December is the month to finish up some of our RSC projects. 



I want 42 blocks for a 6 x 7 layout.  So, I need 6 more blocks.  I've looked through my bigger scraps for some fabric combinations for those six extras. 

Here's 2  blocks I made this morning to add to the pile. Two down...four to go. 


And I'm THINKING I will add a 4 inch crumby border.  Not sure I like the straight lines so I'm going to hunt around my sewing room for that bag of wonky and waste HSTs.  I think the triangle crumbs will look more like those little kaleidoscope pieces look before they form a design.

The angles where the blocks meet are so much fun, I can see why you want to continue the theme in the borders. Getting closer to a finish....
