The colour of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is green. I wasn't sure what I'd have to work on in greens, but while I was trying to fall asleep this past week I came up with quite a list...funny how that happens!
*First I thought of my apple core project that I worked on a little last year - click here to see that. I would like to finish that into something.
*My fun project will be sewing my "Knot" block using 1 1/2" scrap squares - click here to see my red block from last month.
*I will also make some green blocks for my scrappy crumb quilt - click here to see some of the blocks. I only have 4 green blocks, so I'll work on making more.
*I taught a class in different methods of sewing bowtie blocks last semester and was using green scraps to demo the techniques. I would like to make a few more and sew them into a quilt top.
Here are 2 block using each technique - 3D construction on the left, set-in seams in the middle (no one liked that technique!) and connecting corners on the right. It was a fun class and the variety of layouts possible with bowtie blocks made for an amazing variety of finished projects. Here are a few of the students...great quilts, eh?!?
