I’ve been making a few blue blocks using scraps for the RSC2014. Blue is the colour for January and because I joined this challenge late (third week of the month) I thought I would only make one block for each colour and make one rainbow quilt at the end of the year. Well! Once I got started pulling scraps out of my blue bin, I just couldn’t stop! I made the Log Cabin block (above) and these blocks:
Striped block with grey border.
Two ticker tape blocks!
I made a total of 4 blocks and wanted to just keep going! I’m still trying to decide if I’m going to duplicate all these blocks in each of the monthly colours or if I’ll just stick to one or two and see how it goes. I thought I would make a rainbow quilt using the ticker tape blocks but now that I see the two blue blocks side by side, I’m thinking it would look great as a whole quilt. I guess I can decide once I get a few more colours up there to see what it will all look like. I haven’t even made a dent in my blue bin of scraps! I’m not sure how many quilts I could get out of each bin but it looks like it would be several! I can’t imagine how many quilts my stash would make! I better get sewing more!
In other sewing news… I finally made some curtains for my bathroom and laundry room windows. We replaced all the windows in our house a while ago and it’s taken me WAY too long to put curtains up! I’m not sure what the neighbours were thinking, but now at least I don’t have to duck under the window when I get in and out of the shower!
It’s a small accomplishment, but it sure feels good to check that one off my “To Do” list!
I’ll be linking with my mid-week link ups found in my sidebar! Check them all out!
