Aqua Broken Brick Flimsy / Feb RSC Wrap Up

I had a good month playing with my Aqua Scraps for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The list of quilts that I'm working on is here.

I made 10 blocks for my Arlington Square quilt.

I made one block for the Bloom quilt.
And I made one block for the Flowers For Nana Girl quilt
I didn't make any of the "stained glass" blocks because my design doesn't call for aqua. So, instead, I decided to make another leader-ender quilt using a stack of aqua 4" squares I've been storing for nearly 20 years.

For the purple, I used yardage that I originally bought for making square dance clothes. And I did just buy the border fabric at JoAnn's at a sale earlier this month. Otherwise, the rest of the fabric was scraps.

I've now found this pattern in two of my quilt books! In addition to Spruce Root Basket, M'Liss Rae Hawley includes this same pattern in her Fat Quarter Quilts book under the name Broken Bricks. To be honest, I prefer that name. (Sorry about the terrible photo, the light right now is horrible. It's really overcast and rainy here.)

I am really looking forward to next month's color. Yellow is my second favorite color (after purple), so I'll really enjoy playing with it. And I have a TON of yellow scraps. 

Thanks to Angela for hosting the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link up. I'm having a really good time participating this year.

    1. Thanks. That Broken Bricks pattern is a perfect leader-ender project and once I'm about halfway, it's pretty difficult for me to resist just finishing. LOL

  4. Awesome array of RSC blocks!!! I'll have to check back to see what becomes of those leader & ender squares. Oh, maybe that's going to be the broken bricks quilt? Neat!
