purple


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).

  5. 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!!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  10. 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!
