To celebrate the month of July in our Rainbow Scrap Challenge, Angela has declared RED as the color of the month. That means we are attacking our red scraps with extra gusto. Here is the first of my wonky red log cabins for the month:
I plan to do 5 red blocks in all so they will be in the center and all 4 corners of the quilt. In fact, I worked out a new plan for my quilt, which I will share later in the week when all the participants will be encouraged to share their mid-year progress. I can`t wait!
And to show that although I was a slacker posting my blocks for June in a timely manner, at least I did them. June`s color was light blue and/or green/blue (aqua). When we did blues in January, it was just medium to dark blues, so these were a welcome foray back into the blue scrap bin.
I am really loving the aqua/teal one above, and will likely do one more. In fact, it may replace the light blue one (below) in the quilt. The light blue just does not speak to me, and I think it will look rather wimpy against all the other saturated colors of these blocks.
But if it is not included, it can always become a pillow or something. I will just have to put on my thinking cap.
If you have scraps (and what quilter worth her salt doesn’t?), why not join us today over at Scrappy Saturday ??
