Dark blue is the July Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) color of the month. I finished most of my blue RSC blocks previously in the light blue month so thought I would dig into the UFO bin to see what might need some blue that I could concentrate on this month. I found some old Block Lotto Diagonal Bar blocks I won back in 2014.
I think there a little over fifty blocks that finish at 7 inches. I'm thinking I'll just have to make a couple more blocks and I'll make a sashing and get these blocks made into a top this month.
Then I found these even older Double Disappearing Nine Patch (DD9P) blocks from a swap that might have been around 2012 or so. One of the addy labels on the back of one of the blocks had the year 2012 on it.
I have over 70 blocks that I think finish at 7.5 inches. Some were swapped and some I made. I didn't really like making these blocks. Honestly...I'd rather just cut the pieces and make the block as it ends up. It seems like a lot of extra steps to me to make one block and go to the work to cut it apart and then flip around pieces and sew everything back together again
. I think these blocks have been a UFO for a long time because I didn't like the process. But, really there are enough for a nice sized donation quilt so might as well get them put together.
There was also a big bag of parts in with the DD9P. I don't think I'll need them for the DD9P top but you never know.
So...as long as I'm going to be working on these blue things during the RSC dark blue month of July I might as well declare a goal for One Monthly Goal (OMG). My July OMG is to get at least one of these sets of blocks to flimsy stage. I actually hope to get both of them to flimsy stage but I think July is going to be a very busy month for me so I don't want to make overly ambitious goals for myself.
