RSC - Column Quilt Blocks

August blocks

July blocks

I have fallen woefully behind with making the blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Column quilt that was designed by Angela of soscrappy. As a matter of fact, ALL of the quilt blocks (and quilts) that I had started working on this year for the scrap challenge have all been sitting idle for many months. :(

I did have a good start with the Column quilt at the beginning of the year but I stopped after making the butterflies in March.

Yesterday, I spent a bit of time tidying in my sewing room and it must have kick started something because I have been in there a good part of the day today playing with my scraps.

So far today I have completed the blocks for July and August and I plan to go back into my sewing room and work on some more - I have already started digging through my scraps to make the April blocks.

When I put the August blocks on the design wall I realized that I probably should have made fewer of the green blocks and more of the purple blocks. I won't bother with it now, I will wait to see how everything is put together at the end.

crazy looking design wall :)
 Who knows...I just may get caught up with this project... :))

I have found that cleaning/organizing my sewing room makes it easier for me to sew. If it is a mess, I don't want to see it! My favorite RSC block is the blue stars.

I wonder how everything will be set up at the end too. Your desig wonderful n wall looks like it has more than one quilt in the making on there. I'm sure Angela knows what she's doing. You did a great job at catching up. ;^)

Hi Ellen

They all look great. I can't seem to imagine how they all go together. I am looking forward to seeing the finish. Love surprises!
