Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017

A new year, a new rainbow of scraps!

January's color is Purple.  I have plenty of purple scraps, but before I could dig into the bins I had to come up with a plan.

I searched through my Pinterest boards and quilt books and finally settled on 2 new blocks to work on this year for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

First up is a simple cross quilt with lots of low volume fabrics.  I love playing with low volume so this should be a lot of fun.

And my second block was inspired by this amazing quilt by Lynn Harris from her book Every Last Piece.  So beautiful!!

I have lots of scrappy solid pieces and lots of cut off triangles that I just can't bring myself to throw away.  Perfect.


My first month of scrappy blocks are done.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. What a FUN quilt that is going to be!! I've got some triangle off-cut saved, too. No!! I don't need another RSC project for this year!!!

  2. Tracy, these are both so lovely, looking forward to watching them grow.

  3. Off to a great start! Both perfect patterns for putting your scraps to great use.

  4. Wow, great ideas and great blocks! Glad you are joining us this year; it will be fun to see your scraps grow into a beautiful quilt or two.

  5. Love the scraps on the purple. Can't wait to see more. You are off to a good,start. Have a fun week!
