Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks today. There's a little bit of a couple of projects here. After looking at all of the fun novelty type blocks that have shown up in this scrap challenge, I decided I wanted to do one too. The hard part was deciding. But I finally chose these Silly Cars, a free design from Fat Cat Patterns. They only take two fabrics of each colour, a light and a dark, so they are really fast to do up. I'm planning nine of these. They'll be somewhere around 13 inches when done, with maybe some fun sashing, but I really haven't thought that far ahead. I have enough of the white for the window, and the black for the bumpers and tires to keep them the same in each car. I also have enough of the small dotted fabric to do all the background blocks the same. And best of all, it's all stash and scraps. I have yet to actually sew the fused bits down. I'm seriously thinking of digging into my variegated threads, and using a decorative stitch to sew them down. There are all kinds of stitches on my machine that I've never used. This might be a fun way to try them out.
The other thing I continue to work on is the small nine patches that are three inches finished. I have enough of the strips sewn together to give me 11 of the pink nine patches. There's another strip of pink waiting to be sewn to a white strip. These get cut into 1 1/2 inch sections, and then function as my leaders/enders. So, I think I'll link these up, and then get out my instruction manual for my machine, and investigate some stitches.
