Do you know about the Rainbow Scrap Challenge - RSC for short?
Each month Angela assigns us a color, we gather up our scraps and make stuff with that color, and then each Saturday we show off what we've made at a ScrapHappy linky party.
Now it's time for a RSC mid-year update party.
Above you will see my Wonky Logs top - 72 x 90. I started making logs last year with my string scraps. Good thing I finally have enough logs because I was dangerously low on neutral strings.
I want to finish this up for my grandnephew.
I also started making these "Vintage Butterfly" (or Beggar's) blocks last year from 1.5 inch scraps. I have 39 blocks and want 56. I will add sashing between blocks and a single border of butterflies. Those red blocks are ones I made last year. This month's color is also red and I have some other scraps to make a few blocks this month.
I also started making Dresden blocks late last year. I only made a couple of them last year but this year I've been making 4 each month. These are made from 4.5 inch scraps.
I started making these 8 inch Kaleidoscope blocks this year from 2.5 inch scraps.
I also started making these 6 inch Twinkler blocks last year from 2.5 inch scraps. I have 84 of them.
Again, another project from last year - 8 inch Depression blocks from 2.5 inch scraps. I do have a LOT of scraps in the 2.5 inch size.
I started these Pentland Cracker blocks this year after I participated in a swap of them. I decided I would add to the swap by making some of these Crackers each month. (I do like BIG quilts).
I'm not going to stick my 3 inch spool blocks up on the cutting-matt-covered-with-batting design wall but I've been making these for a couple of years, I think. I know I have 524 of them. I am not sure how many I need. (I do like BIG quilts). These little spool blocks are a good use of 1.5 inch scraps.
I'm also not going to stick my Lozenges (aka Suppositories) on the makeshift design wall. I have over 500 of them. These also use 2.5 inch scraps and will finish at 2x4.5 inches. For a twin sized quilt I figure I need 720 of them so that's how many I will make.
So, now I've described how I'm using my scraps. What are you doing with yours?
If you need ideas visit the RSC Mid Year Update and go see what everyone else is doing with their scraps. Before you know it you, too, could have a Rainbow quilt made from your scraps.
I'm going to go Whoop, Whoop it up at Confessions of a Fabric Addict and see what everyone else happens to be Whoop, Whooping about.
And, since these are WIPs I'm going to go party over at A Quilting Reader's Garden for WIPs Be Gone. (Actually, I'm working more on Scraps Be Gone. Maybe these are SIPs...Scraps in Progress. )
Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More Fun than Housework. (Yes, it is).
And, how can we forget Scraptastic Tuesday???
