Happy Scrappy Saturday Pink #1
It is March already and a new colour has been set out for us in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at SoScrappy, it is Pink. I still had to do some Green in the last few days of Feb. It may have been Monday night when I was looking to see if she had posted the new colour as I wanted to do some scrap sewing. Nope, so I did Green log cabins and it was OK as it was still Feb.
I have made these blocks mostly with a little triangle in the centre and a I start adding logs. I use some of my smaller strips first in the first two rounds. I have also added a bit of an angle to the blocks too. I am not sure I am going the same direction or if I start with light or end in light. The blocks are coming out a bit different size but I can always add or trim them down.
So Pink is our colour for March. I used so much pink in my Orca Bay last Dec and then in Jan I did the Heart Quilt and More Here about it. I do not have all that many pinks left in the scrap box. I think I can still get a few more log cabins and some for my other rainbow quilts. If we were counting I have three rainbow quilts on the go now. I was only planning two but I have gotten carried away.
I got one Red block done too (but I think it is my smallest block so far). I am really not sure how these will go together. I do know, I do not want sashing. I want these to blend together. Maybe rows or maybe these crazy circles I have started here today. I love playing on the design wall so we will just have to keep playing and see where it will take this quilt. Not having a solid plan is good fun. Just trust in myself it will work out.
