I am disappointed in myself for not keeping up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (hosted by Angela at soscrappy) this year. I have made some really pretty quilts with my challenge blocks in the past. And I usually have had at least one, if not multiple projects, going throughout the months. Some projects have carried into the next year until I have enough blocks to make at least a throw. But I kept at it! Not this year ...
I started Full Stop in January and it came to a full stop in February.
Maybe I'll whip those hashtags into a table scrap this week for a quick Christmas gift.
I was inspired by Scrap Magnet that I saw on Julie's Quilts and Costumes. But that lost it's "attraction" after the first block when I saw that my background choices didn't have enough value difference to make it worth the effort.
Though now that I look at it, maybe it ain't so bad. I may try a second block. I might even try some different backgrounds. After all, it is a scrap challenge, isn't it?
To my credit, at the recent S'mores retreat I made some more Square Dance blocks (held over from 2020, I think) ...
... and assembled a rainbow of Masala Boxes.
So I'm a little late to the RSC party, but I'm getting there! Monday I started thinking about what I want to do for RSC '22 when I noticed that I had started '21 with Sister's Choice (another leftover from 2020). I had three blocks in the box; today I'm ready to sew blocks into a quilt.
