Two new Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects were started this week!
1) I tried hard to resist the Sewcialites quilt along. It was just too many projects for me to juggle. I have enjoyed following Coriander Quilts and seeing all the lovely sampler blocks she made in 3" miniature size.
But when I saw block #33, which is a sewing machine block designed by Lori Holt, I just had to make it.
Oh my goodness, how cute is this? There are 16 pieces to cut to make this pattern and it is so fun to sew. You can watch a video here if you are a beginning quilter and want to make one.
You really can't tell the scale of the block so here is a photo of me holding it so you can see how little and sweet it is!
And that, my friends, is how a new RSC project is born! After I made the block in blue and it was so super cute, then I made it in purple.

2) I bought the Quiltville pattern for the Bitcoin quilt. How could I resist? It was scrappy and marvellous and I love it!
I immediately started sewing ladders with the purples scraps that were sitting around from making my monthly placemat and other purple projects this month.

I just know some of you are going to ask me how many RSC projects I have on the go, and the answer is... "enough to make me very happy"! 😁
