This month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is Loden Green (think Evergreen forest). Accent color is dusty brown.
From 2.5 inch scraps....12 inch Interlocking Chains
From 1.5 inch scraps I made some Vintage Rails (inspired by antique quilt called Roman Stripes). From 2.5 inch scraps I made one 8 inch Depression block and some 4 inch miscellaneous blocks for the Kitchen Sink pile.
And, speaking of 4 inch blocks...I made some little 4 inch I Spy Happy Blocks from some fussy cut green 2.5 inch scraps surrounded by 1.5 inch scraps. I cut too many 1.5 inch pieces for the greens I needed to surround so a fat cat on blue background also snuck in the mix.
And then there's the Sprouts that nearly depleted my 2.5 inch scraps.
First I made my normal monthly sprouts.
Then I made 5 Green Leaf pairs for this month's Block Lotto.
And then I made four of the seven sets of Green Leaf pairs I need for the Old MacDonald Sampler QAL also going on at Block Lotto. We are supposed to use whatever we chose for our ground cover for the background of these four. I chose green. So for these blocks I made my background a dark green and the leaf a lime green. It was really difficult for me to remember to use dark green instead of the neutral background (like pairs above) and lime green for the leaf when sewing them together! I hope there's enough contrast in these in the finished quilt
Go green...use those green scraps this month!
Link up on Saturdays in May and show us how you've used them.
