Wishing you a belated "Happy International Women's day" which was yesterday! I am so thankful to have many strong and inspiring women in my life, many of whom are quilters.
Also this month we celebrate St. Patrick's Day, and we eagerly await the arrival of SPRING and all the green that starts to appear when the weather warms up. On the calendar spring is only 11 days away... bring on the green!
March is green month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I did a lot of tiny cutting this week to add some green blocks to two of my RSC projects. The first one is the Economy Path block which uses 1.5" squares and strips to make blocks that look like a plus sign. These are so cute and I just love making them. I plan to make 4 little blocks and then sew them together into a 4 patch plus block that will finish at 6". Although it takes a really long time to cut and sew, it's still worth it!
Here are the blocks on the design wall from the yellow, red, and green months, plus a few random blocks (on the bottom left and bottom right) made from scraps that were on the cutting table at the time.
Then I cut and sewed 9 green "Scrappy Doughnuts". These blocks will finish at 3.5" in the quilt. This project was inspired by Temecula's One Block Wednesday. I'm not sewing these blocks together until the end of the year to make a totally scrappy layout.
Here are the doughnuts on the design wall laid out in diagonal colour trails. Very pretty!
Hop over to the RSC linkup and see what the other quilters are sewing with their greens scraps.
