Last 2012 Scrappy Saturday

I worked on many different scrappy projects over the past year, but these were my primary projects for the 2012 Rainbow Scrap Challenge:
*My favorite rainbow scrap project was making Knot blocks (pattern details herein the colour of the month.
Here is my 12th (and last block) for the Knot quilt...
in lime green scraps. Thanks to my friend Barb for the green scrap infusion which rescued my block! I think it looks nicer in real life than on the computer screen :)
I will find the project box and post the Knots for my last Design Wall Monday posting of 2012. This project will move to my UFO list for 2013.

*I sewed 5 paper pieced Palm Branch blocks this year (pattern is here). It's a fun block to sew but requires longer narrow scraps, so this year I will try to put those scraps aside into the project box as I come across them. This project will continue into 2013.


*Crumb blocks - I added a few crumb blocks to my pile this year. I love this method of using up scraps. There is no cutting required, and it is very relaxing sewing.  The crumb blocks will also continue into 2013 until I have enough for a quilt.
I have a few ideas for new scrap projects to start in the coming year, but haven't made a final decision yet. There are still two more days left to make that decision before we start a new year!
Hop over to SoScrappy to see the other scrappy postings today.

What a great post! I love the knots blocks, and the Palm blocks look like something for my "to do" list also. It is fun to look forward to 2013 and set goals -- loved your post. Happy New Year!

What a great collection of rainbow scraps. I love how the knot blocks look all together. It will be a fun quilt someday. The palm branch blocks looks so striking with the white though, what a great modern quilt it will be someday. As for the crumb blocks, there is just no way to go wrong with those. Anything made with crumbs is "free" in terms of fabric and such a great use of the humblest of pieces. Thanks for joining in throughout the year.

The Knot and Palm blocks have been fun to watch come together. I'm looking foward to seeing what projects you come up with for next year, I'm sure they will be gorgeous.
