This month I am combining my participation for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge with my UFO for A Lovely Year of Finishes. I am going to work on a teal (more blueish than greenish) and brown UFO.
A few years ago I bought some yardage of the Sweetwater Pure line of fabrics, which are mostly soft teals and browns.
I made a full size mystery quilt from that fabric (see the quilt here) and from the scraps I made 12 blocks for the block sampler quilt-along that Jo hosted two years ago. Here are some of the blocks on the design wall auditioning some sashing and border choices. I loved these blocks but never got around to putting them together.
Now I want to clean out that box of blocks and scraps. Do you have this pile of stuff for your UFOs? Leftover fabric is on the left, smaller scraps in the box, and a block pile on the right. This is a great quilt waiting to happen, and this is the month to do it!
I am going to quilt the blocks in the "quilt-as-you-go" style. Each week I am going to quilt 3 blocks and by the end of the month, all 12 blocks will be quilted. Hopefully! And as I go along, I'm going to cut up the scraps in the box into useable pieces for my Rainbow Challenge projects. We shall see how things evolve!
