Yikes! How did that happen? This means we are halfway through 2014. Double yikes!
It also means that we are halfway through the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for this year, and Angela is hosting a linkup so that everyone can show off their progress so far. (Thanks Angela!) So, here are the "family portraits" of my RSC14 blocks so far:
First up are the triangle blocks. These are simple 9-patch half-square triangles that I plan to set on point. I've been using the brighter/more whimsical scraps for these blocks. They finish at 6 inches square, so 36 of them (3 in each color) should make a happy quilt. These are fast and easy and use up some of the weird strips I have saved. The two in the middle of the bottom row look very light in the picture, but are okay in real life. Every quilt needs variety, right?
Since I'm using triangle paper to make these, I end up with ten HSTs in each color, which means I have one of each left over. I'm thinking of adding some "mixed" blocks to the quilt also, using these triangles. I would have enough for four multicolor blocks. I could also use them as cornerstones or something in the border. What do you think?
|Face it, we need a new fence.|
Those are my projects! I think they look great so far, and can't wait to see everyone else's.
Happy sewing everyone, and Happy Independence Day! Have a safe and happy holiday weekend. And a happy weekend to non-Americans as well!
Linking to the awesome Angela at So Scrappy, of course!
