|January 2017 RSC block|
In case you haven't yet stumbled across an RSC post somewhere in blogland, here's how it works. Every month a featured color is announced, and participants delve into their scrap fabrics for scraps in that color to make a block (or several) in that color. You can make the same block (or blocks) every month in each month's color, or you can make something different each month. It's really up to you. Every Saturday you can go to the So Scrappy blog and link up a blog post about your RSC sewing for the week.
My big challenge is to wait next for month's color! I drafted this butterfly block in EQ, and while I was at it, I popped it into a quilt layout.
UPDATE: If you would like to make your own butterfly blocks, check out my tutorial here. Please give me credit for the design if you use it.
Or maybe this one:
I really want to make them ALL right now so I can play with them right now.
This isn't helping:
|What happens when you take the lid off the scrap box|
When I opened the scrap box it exploded and the lid won't go back on. That's just the unsorted scraps. I also have several plastic shoe boxes of scraps all tidily cut into squares and rectangles. (I'm not doing that anymore, as you may have guessed from the picture above.) One block per month is not going to solve this problem.
Still, I'm going to try to stick to one block per month, because I also really want to work on these projects:
- Chic Country (52% of the units are made!)
- A quilt using all my snowflakes (all 26 of them!) and maybe turning that into a BOM pattern.
- Something else snowflakey - because I may or may not have come up with another versatile snowflake design that will need a quilted something to live in.
- Three or four new design ideas floating around.
- Quilt math tutorials (I've been meaning to start those for a couple of years - it's time to do it!)
- Write up patterns for my son's kaleidoscope quilt and for Fundy Skies.
