FNSI for Scrappy Saturday block

At FNSI last night, I finally got a brown Knot block sewn for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Most scrappers were finished with their brown scraps last month, but I just got fired up about brown at the end of October.
Now that I see the block on the computer screen, I think that top left block got rotated 90 degrees at a crucial step in the construction process! Here's my favorite seam ripper...I will get to work unstitching what I accomplished last night!
Here are my Scrappy Rainbow goals for the remaining days of 2012: 
*sew one more brown block. I still have enough brown scraps left (thanks to Janet and Deanna). This second Knot block will use up the darker browns, into blacks.
*to round out a nice even dozen blocks for my Knot sampler, I need one more colour... maybe a bright, lime green Knot block?  I will gather up all the blocks and put them on the Monday design wall post.
*get volume 6 of the 100 Blocks magazine and pick a new challenge block for 2013.

  1. Love the knot! Good idea to check out the 100 blocks magazine for a new challenge block. Off to quilt and bind a quilt so I have some hand work later this week!

  2. I use the same seam ripper. I am able to rip out the tiniest stitches with it and I find the shape of the handle fits comfortably in my hand.

  3. I wouldn't have noticed the error if you hadn't mentioned it. Looked good to me. : ) But I understand the need to fix it.
    I also like your idea about choosing a block for next year.

  4. I like your lime green idea. It would make a nice addition to your collection. Hard to believe the year is almost over, but it is time to start thinking about rounding it all up.

  5. Such a beautiful block. Shame about having to undo it though. You have some great things on your blog too. I love the vote for women blocks and also your climbing the mountain quilt is so pretty.

  8. Your mistake was one of those that not pointed out, would never be noticed ... but I can see how once you *did* see it, you'd have to change it! Looks like you had a fun FNSI! :)

  10. So happy you were able to get enough browns to create a knot block. Curious to see what block you'll choose for next year!

  11. Great block. Good idea to make a brown to black block. I have rainbow quilts that need an extra block or two also. I am on the look out for #6 too. I looked for it this week but no luck yet.

  12. This is such a pretty block for a rainbow challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing all of them together in a quilt.

  13. I wouldn't have noticed the rotation, but I always hate it when something didn't quite go together the way I planned. It bugs me to no end until I fix it.
