We're coming to the end of the first month of this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The color prompt for the month of January was purple. These are the blocks I've made most recently:
I've decided to add 16 patch blocks to my Rainbow collection this year. There will probably only be a few each month. They may come in handy as alternate blocks when it's time to build a rainbow quilt top at the end of the year. I had patches in the right sizes for the 10" and 7.5" Wrench (or Churn Dash) blocks so I made those up just to use the patches.
And here we have another postage stamp star with some lighter purples.
The Bow Tie blocks are just 6" like the Shoo-fly and Hole in the Barn Door blocks but they look bigger in this picture for some reason!
Angela has invited us to show quilts or tops we've made featuring our RSC blocks. I've shown this little baby quilt recently but it's been quilted and bound since then so I thought I'd show it again. ;- )
Many of those stars were made last year during my RSC efforts. James took his quilting cues from the setting fabric I used in the middle and around the perimeter of the quilt.
The thoughts expressed in the print I used for the back seemed appropriate for a baby quilt even though it's not technically a juvenile print.
I'll be linking up with the other Rainbow Scrap bloggers. There will be lots of inspiration to see I bet!
