So every Saturday, I check out the fun at soscrappy, home of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Everyone has been having such fun since the beginning of the year (and some have even been doing this for several years!), working with whatever color Angela has announced as the color of the month.
I first discovered Soscrappy in late February, so I was already too late to participate in this year's festivities. Or so I told myself. But it looks like such fun...
So I got tired of standing with my nose pressed to the window, watching all the other kids have a good time.
I've been wanting to make myself an Ohio Star quilt for a while. No time like the present, eh?
July's color is red. I like red. I have red.
So I jumped right in with a red Ohio Star.
After a quick visit from the seam ripper, I put it back together correctly. You know, just for grins.
And one red Ohio Star would be lonely all by itself, so I quickly made another.
And then I thought about trying to catch up. I'm only 6 months behind, after all. I remember one of the months was dark blue. (I think it was January.)
So, a couple of stars for January.
So, woohoo! I'm only 5 months behind now!
These little sweeties will finish at 4.5", and it's likely I'll make a few more for each color if I do actually catch up. (Hey, it could happen!) I'll have to pull some light blue, green, purple, and... hmmm. Pink was one (and since I've been working up a fair tolerance for pink lately, that should now be doable.) and there's one more. Yellow? I'll have to go look it up. (Aw, gee, I'll have to go look at quilts and quilt blocks? What a shame...) So, here I go, playing with rainbows.
As long as those sneaky little monkey wrenches don't run off with me. I swear I only meant to kit up one more block. You know, just to have it ready for when I might start that quilt. You know, that quilt that I might make but I haven't really made up my mind. Yeah, that quilt.
