Rainbow Scrap Challenge is red, and in sorting through my scraps I discovered that I don't have many red ones. It isn't a colour I work with very often, except for Valentine's Day projects!
When searching for red scraps, I found this UFO which I pieced at retreat 2 years ago! It was one of the mystery patterns from Paper Panache.
I found the red scraps from piecing the rose and bordered the block, then started to remove the paper pattern from the back. That is a task that is best completed while watching TV.
Then I quilted very simply around the rose, the heart, and the leaves, and did some straight lines in the border.
And ta da...
a finished mini quilt for Valentine's Day!
I just realized that this same process happened to me in January when I was looking for blue scraps to use up...I found an old blue UFO to work on. If this happens every month of the challenge, I'll be very happy!
My goal for this week is to make a couple of red blocks for this scrap quilt.
