I've been watching the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for a while now and you know what? I fancy giving it a go this year.
Frankly, I'll never get through the stash if I don't make a start.
It's hosted by So Scrappy and she has been running it for a few years now. Deb A over at VTQuilter has definitely been an inspiration. She has made some fabulous quilts over the years. I found her blog via canuckquilter. Of course, I'm not in their league - they are both amazing quilters.
Back to the RSC Challenge for 2017. . .
Each month a colour is announced and you make one or several blocks in that colour. One block a month will do me and I'm using a pattern called Handy Andy designed by Janelle Noack which was published in Homespun (June 2013).
|Homespun Magazine ~ June 2013|
The colour for January is Purple and here is my first block. Measures 10.5 inches.
You can read more about the challenge at So Scrappy here and I'm linking up.
Lookin good! I haven't seen much from you, so this is wonderful! You guys are almost making me want to join...ReplyDelete
That is a great block for the RSC! So pretty in purple!ReplyDelete
What a pretty quilt pattern. I love your first block; the purple is lovely.ReplyDelete
Beautiful block - you're off and running!ReplyDelete
Great way to make the RSC your own!! Choosing a pattern from your stash of books or magazines to sew blocks in a rainbow of colors is good thinking. Thanks for sharing!!ReplyDelete
That is very pretty! I think it is a fun challenge, but I'm not going to participate. I have enough going on already. Good luck with it!ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful block, showing off the color in contrast with the white. So glad you found us and I hope you will have fun joining in. There's no pressure of deadlines, which is great. One person (like me) makes a few blocks a month and someone else actually makes a few quilts a month. So welcome, it's a fun place.ReplyDelete
Glad to see you again! Your chosen pattern is a pretty one, and your first purple block looks great. I won't be joining in, but I will be watching everyone's progress. Have fun with it! ---"Love"ReplyDelete
What a lovely quilt! Welcome to the party.ReplyDelete
What a great challenge!! Don't you love this time of year, with all the challenges? I'm already decluttering, canning and reading the classics. I should do this one because I have more fabric than I can ever use!ReplyDelete
That's a great choice for RSC. I'm going to look forward to seeing your blocks each month. We can keep each other on track!ReplyDelete
