scrappy on Saturday

Over the past two weeks, I have been cutting and piecing madly to "catch up" with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
eta: I've linked up over at Angela's blog.

I have now done blocks for seven of the eleven months for this year.

I "cheated" by combining two months (August and September) which were white and black respectively. I chose to make black-and-white blocks; I think you can see why!

Here are my February (red) four-patch, nine patch, string, improv and Wonky Window blocks.

And my April (purple) string and improv blocks. Coincidentally this is my birthday month and my favourite colour combined.
My June (yellow) blocks: string and improv.

My October (orange) can be seen here and my November blocks (brown) can be seen here.

I have no intention of doing the July blocks (red, white and blue) because I don't have enough red or white scraps.

So I have only pink, green and blue to go!

Can I finish them all before the end of the year?


  1. Sure you can-where there is a will there IS a way!

    Nice work so far!

  2. You're on a roll. I think you can finish way before the end of the year. YOU GO!

  3. You have been busy. You should be getting the scrap pile down a bit. My favourite on this post are the purple blocks. They all look good. I like the way you have made different sorts of blocks.

  4. I think the B&W ones are great. The others, too of course! Cant wait to see them all together! What do you think of how big it's gonna be?

  5. Very nice, this will make an interesting scrap quilt.

  6. I know you can finish them before the end of the year. What a great collection of block!

  7. I'm sure you can finish by the end of the year. I really like the yellow and purple blocks a whole lot!

  8. I particularly like the black and white blocks! Very stunning!

  9. Of course you will finish all the blocks in time. Love the string blocks especially the red and purple ones. Looks like you've been busy.

  10. Wow look at you! This is great! I love that challenge. I found that using scraps often means needing into other fabric anyway and creating more scraps - but hey I'm not complaining :)

  11. Yes you can!!

    I love all those colours. I'm about to do a scrappy quilt for the first time - seeing your blocks is inspiring!

  12. Fabulous collection of blocks - great job catching up.

  13. Delicious colour combos, you have chosen well.
