I spent all weekend cutting and sewing my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. Other than the stained glass blocks (which I've decided to postpone until the weather gets cold again), I've caught up on all the blocks for my RSC projects!
On Friday, I finished the Flowers for Nana Girl blocks. I started cutting out the dark green triangles for the sashing blocks, but I won't bother to build those until I know how many I need.
I also counted up these blocks and I have realized I already have more than the 96 total I need and there are still 3 more colors for RSC. Oops. I guess they're too easy to make. I've decided to continue making them each month but I'll just use the extras in a lap quilt, probably without the fancy border.
I've also been looking ahead at how I'm going to assemble these blocks, i.e. whether I want to add sashing or not. I think with all the seam matching along the edge of the blocks, I will be adding sashing, but I can't decide which color. Which do you guys prefer? White or Black?Design Wall Monday and Monday Making. I'm also linking up with One Monthly Goal. Drop on by those blogs if you want to see more great projects.
Although I like the black sashing I really prefer the way the lovely shapes stand out and seem to float with the white. Great design. xxReplyDelete
Thanks! I'll have to see if I have enough white scraps.Delete
I like both, but the colours really POP out of the white version, so it gets my vote.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I've been surprised that white is the overwhelming favorite.Delete
I think I prefer the white version, too. What really caught my eye are the Bloom blocks!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I'll probably use the white sashing since so many folks have preferred it.Delete
I like the white as well. I feel like my eyes have a place to rest there.ReplyDelete
