Late to the Party

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.

Better late than never, right?

Check out other scrappy projects at ScrapHappy Saturday.


  1. Well, you inspired me with your rainbow Masala Box, and now I own the pattern and am planning that as a 2021 project! Sister's Choice is wonderful, too. I think you're right on time! 👍

  2. Your rainbow masala box is inspired! And you're not late to the party-- you're keeping the party going. Great projects!

  3. Love, love, LOVE that Masala Box in RAINBOW!!! Sister's Choice is going to be really pretty, too, Libby. Look at you, making more blocks for your Square Dance project! Sorry that the RSC didn't hold your interest in 2021, but it looks like you are making a valiant effort to "catch up." A runner out of those Hashtags sounds like a fabulous entry for December's TABLE SCRAPS Challenge. Time to get busy!

  4. Sometimes quilt blocks need to “marinate”! Looks like you’re back to the “cooking” phase! Good for you!
