Scrappy Saturday - Blue

It's Saturday....time for the rainbow challenge update.
I'm working on my blue UFO and "killing 2 birds with 1 stone" (that's a weird saying!).
I set a goal of 35 blocks by the end of January,  which gives a layout of 5 blocks across, and 7 rows down. I am enjoying strip piecing the blocks and I'm throwing in the occasional purple strip, since it seemed "too blue" to me. It's hard for me to limit myself to 1 colour!
I don't have all the blocks sewn yet, but thought I would jump ahead and see if I like it enough to keep making more blocks.

Can you believe I made another mistake?! My last blog post showed a mistake and this post shows another one!  You're going to think I am falling apart over here!  Okay...tomorrow, I'm going to really concentrate!!

I had to really look for your mistake. Its going to be a great quilt.

Your mistake is hardly noticeable, even after you told us to look for it. The quilt is looking great, the little bit of purple is just right.

I love the purple you are adding in - really making it sparkle.

Carol said...

Your quilt is so fun to just stare at it and I don't even know where your mistake is.

What a fun quilt. I love the purple you're adding here and there. It's like a little surprise.

I am all about purple, so this is a great look, even with the mistake. I alway say that each mistake shows all the love that was poured into the quilt. If it were perfect it wouldn't be handmade.

Looks great. The mistake is really hard to see, but you won't be happy with the quilt if it bugs you.

I have to really study your photos to find any mistakes. I only have one block done for my blue challenge so will post after I get more finished. Love your blocks.

It's GROWING!! and I love it...I think the purple adds something wonderful!

The odd strip of purple really lifts the quilt. It's going to look fantastic when it's done.
Don't forget that a quilter never makes mistakes, she just makes a design change.

That's a great way to use up the scraps. I love how it looks. If you don't tell us, we won't know there's a mistake anywhere!

I'm using the Rainbow challenge colors to complete Cricket Studio's quilt-along. I told my dad, "Killing 2 birds. . ." and then felt guilty. Why would I want to kill ANY birds? So I changed it to, "double the fun" and I feel much better.
