Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2012 - Red Week 1
This year I am gung-ho to participate in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge again. It is graciously hosted by Angela of SoScrappy who definitely deserves a great big THANK YOU - she is really motivating us to use up our bits and pieces of fabric and the best thing is that there are no quilt police. How you participate is up to you - no scraps...gasp! or too busy - no problem. She provides a link-up on her blog each Saturday so why not visit and check out what everyone is working on. I plan on doing things a wee bit differently than I did last year. I really didn't have too much of a plan when I joined in for 2011 and just went with the flow but after seeing all of the great rainbow quilts that were made I have decided to jump on that wonderful band wagon. I plan on making little 9-patches that will finish at 6" as well as some string blocks. I am open to other projects as well - it just depends on time and inclination. I figure if I can work on some smaller projects then I can use them to practice my machine quilting skills at the same time. I hope to have a number of fabulous scrap projects completed by the end of the year.
