Wasn't it considerate of Angela (Rainbow Scrap Challenge), Alycia (Alycia Quilts), and Kevin (Kevin the Quilter) to all choose BLUE projects for July?
Forget, for now, that I am doing Kevin's mystery in amber instead of blue. The point is that I am using tons -- well, maybe a few ounces -- of amber/gold/butterscotch strips from my overflowing scrap bins.

I haven't made any more progress on my RSC17 blocks this week. Instead I've been working on Long Time Gone (Jen Kingwell design). Talk about a scrap buster! I had a large collection of black/white prints, in both strips and FQs.

Rather than work my way through all the blocks, I'm working on one section at a time. That way, if I run out of fabric (not likely) or lose interest (could happen), I'll have sections for a smaller quilt. This week I worked on courthouse steps to finish out one section ...
... and pineapples to go with a large block of HSTs.
I encourage you to visit soscrappy to see what others are doing with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
