It's so exciting to be working on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge again. I'm enjoying using the two colors in my block.
Because my main scrap stash has jelly roll strips, I decided to use 2.5-inch blocks. The diagonals in white is what I wanted to emphasize like an Irish Chain. So the block is large, 16 inches finished. However, I'm trying to include a full range of blue along with a scattering of purple. For the central part I used some HSTs from my stash, but I'm not satisfied with it yet.
But using up my stash has taken a blow. My daughter was cleaning her basement and found some old quilt projects I thought were long gone. So here is the pile of scraps after I unpinned them from an old sheet 'design wall'.
I also found these colorful blocks which I do not remember making at all. It was over 20 years ago. Please excuse the poor photo; it was late at night.
So one step forward and two steps back, but I'm having fun and that's what counts, along with not buying any more fabric this year, one whole week. Hope I can keep it up. I made a list of all my projects as a reminder not to get too overloaded.
I link up with RSC16 at superscrappy.blogspot.com and Monday Making at Love, Laugh, Quilt. Do check out what others are doing there.
