I didn't do any piecing last month so this month I need to catch up on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) blocks made with orange scraps. I've been using mostly floral scraps.
I had orange scraps for two Dove In The Window blocks that finish at 10.5 inches. When I looked at my total tally of blocks I saw I had 61 blocks and wanted a total of 64 for a top. I did an actual count to see if that total agreed with my tally sheet. No...I counted twice and only counted 60 blocks. Well, with these two I then had 62 blocks so I decided to go ahead and make 2 more blocks.
So I made two more blocks. Then when I dug through my RSC box of projects I found the extra block. So now I have my total of 64 and an orphan. At any rate there are enough for a quilt top that should end up 84 inches square.
For the time being I am going to put the set of blocks in my Some Assembly Required (SAR) box. This box holds complete block sets (or pieces like the tumblers aka peacock feathers) ready to be assembled into a top.
I took inventory and the SAR box now contains:
Dove in the Window
Grandmother's Flower Garden
Short Skinny String blocks (Eclectic Strings)
Single Wedding Ring
Animal Crackers II
My October One Monthly Goal (OMG) is to assemble at least one top from the SAR box. Hmmm, where do I start?
