This is the last Saturday of March (yikes!), so today I've got a small roundup of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. I already showed off the green Cut Glass Dish blocks, so today let's start with the Boston Common quilt:
Well, that looks happy! If you recall, I'm putting a round of squares onto this quilt top each month in the color of the month. I still have not had to cut any new squares, just pull them out of the 2-1/2 inch square bin. It makes me happy to use those babies up! Some of them have been hanging around for a long time. I think in April there will be one more round, then I'll add another round of white squares, just as a design element. I know I won't be using a brown or black round unless they're the very last one, so the white squares will add a bit of size to the quilt, too.
Next up are the Tiny Tuesday blocks:
I didn't know if I'd like tiny blocks, but I certainly do! I didn't make the umbrella, but I did make a couple of extra blocks to make my quilt bigger. And of course I made the owl:
You can see that my owl is sleeping. He must be tired. Actually, I couldn't find anything for eyes, so I just made closed eyes. And I was going to make him green or brown, but I'm glad I went ahead with the green instead.
Finally, I also made six green string sections for the Scrap Happy Rails quilt:
I have to say, when I started this project I was worried about how strings in all one color would look. Wouldn't that be awfully flat? Turns out it's not, and I'm really glad. Once again I didn't have to cut any new strings, and I even had a few left over. It sure doesn't look like there are that many in the jar, but somehow they magically keep multiplying.
I initially tried to take the picture of the string sections outside, but I think the camera is going. I did manage to get this one, which shows the colors nicely:
And that is the end of the green projects! I'm happy with my progress, and I hope you're happy with your progress, too. Have a nice, restful weekend before we tackle the next color!
