Scrappy Colour Saturday...

I'm back at working on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. However, I'm way behind on making the blocks, and skipped a few colours, as well. Yellow, which was June's colour, wouldn't have worked at all with the background fabric for this project. I could have used golds, but I have another project that I'm saving golds for. July's colour was red, so that's what I'm working on now. I have four more of the larger blocks to make out of reds. I can probably get those done today. My original plan for this quilt was to make it 8 blocks wide, by 10 blocks long, and border it with the double four patch blocks. I'm re-thinking that plan, and instead might make the center of the quilt square, 8x8 blocks wide and long. I have tons of those single four patches in a bag, and I think I'll use those at the top and bottom of the quilt to make it rectangular. If I do that, I only need to make one more set of these blocks, probably using the September colour of orange. So, I'll link up this page to today's Scrappy Saturday, and then go back to making more reds.

  5. Glad to see that you're picking this up again! I love red, and especially the broad variety of shades - and how well red goes with so many other colours.
    I'm excited to see how your quilt is going to turn out - I haven't got a clue yet what my quilt(s) are going to look like!

I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
