I didn’t work on anything for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this month until I sat down earlier this week and made the three Sampler Blocks for August. I doubt I’ll get anything more done this month for RSC, so I will need to play catch-up in September with my paper pieced cats and paper pieced trees. Hopefully that won’t be a problem.
I decided to use dark blue, gray, and black for the Sampler Blocks. I am pleased with how they turned out, and I am getting excited to see what the quilt top ends up being once I get my alternate stars done and everything laid out on the design wall.
For the Bullseye Sampler Block I went with some darker blues…
I don’t really have much indigo in my fabrics, but I do like these two dark blues in this block.
For Mr. Roosevelt’s Necktie I used some grays.
There is also a little bit of purple and green in there, but that’s fine. I have had those lighter grays for quite some time and just never found something to use them in. I decided this would work.
Finally, I used black for the Road to California Sampler Block.
I have a lot of black and white prints, so I decided to use that instead of a black on black or solid black. I was thinking with all the color in the quilt, the black might stick out too much.
So that’s it for me for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for August. I will be linking up with Angela at So Scrappy. Head over for some lovely projects.
