Rainbow Challenge

I'm joining in the Rainbow Scrap challenge this year over at So Scrappy.  The challenge color for January was purple. I've sewn my blocks, ten of them. 







I decided to try some different lay outs on the display wall. Straight set.

This will look more interesting when there are more colors.


But I like this design better.

I won't make a final decision until next fall.

The small squares are 1" finished and the larger squares are 2" finished. The whole block is 8" finished. 

I'm still sewing 4-patches. Hopefully I will have enough sewn of whichever color is selected for February.

  1. Well done. I think you'll be playing with a few more layouts before the year is up but your second one has some definite possibilities.

    1. I have plenty of time to work on the layouts. The first one does look better when mixed with other fabrics.

  5. I do like the second design. Plenty of time to decide how the block will come together though. Great start to your quilt.

  7. Looking good Gretchen, I like the 4 patches and all the different purples intermixed! Going to start on mine today! Maybe I can catch up by the end of the month! I really like both of the designs, but the second one is really popping and pretty! You will have a pretty quilt!

  15. I am intrigued by how different your various designs are! Amazing what can be done with simple blocks! You have inspired me to try my hand at this sew along. Lord knows I have the scrap bin to do it!

    1. Just pick a simple design that has multiple sets. You don't have to decide on the final layout now, there is plenty of time until the end of the year. Many of the participants in this challenge have multiple projects in progress. I decided to stick with just one. I have other projects I'm working on too that aren't part of the RSC. I'm glad I could inspire you. Blessings.
