It's the finishing time of year for our Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. Last week I got my Knot blocks sewn together into a quilt top and this week I'm on to another RSC project.... Mad City Mama. This is a pattern from one of my all time favourite quilting books called Adventures with Leaders and Enders (see other versions of the block when Bonnie Hunter was teaching her pattern here).
I started these blocks in January 2016 and have had the 8 blocks sewn since the spring.
This is the place at which many of my projects get stalled - at a decision point near the end of piecing the top. I couldn't decide which colour to pick for the last block. There is no wrong answer here, and I just had to make the decision.
I finally decided that this quilt top is going to be finished in 2017 and that the last block is going to be lime green (which my friend Barbara considers to be a "neutral" colour!!) There are over 130 scraps in each Mad City Mama block, so I have gathered a nice pile of green bits to cut up (sorry about the overexposed photo... lime green is very bright!) and I hope to use this last as a leader-ender project when building my Quiltville mystery blocks.
