2014 RSC May, Green, Week 4
This week I'll add four 8.5" cat blocks, four 7.0" scrappy string log cabin blocks and two 6.5" sampler midgets blocks to my block collections. A green cotton knitted dishcloth made it into the picture.
Someone asked how I organize my RSC blocks. I store my cat blocks, my 8.5" blocks, my 7.0" string blocks, my string triangles, my midget sampler blocks, my happy scrappy house blocks, my coco mug blocks and my finished hot pad/pot holders in individual stacks in a box that holds all Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. Not very high tech. At or near the end of the year, I'll start sewing blocks together. If December is too busy, I'll work with blocks in January. If I don't have enough blocks for a quilt in a stack, I'll make more blocks during the next year's RSC. This is the second year I've made spool blocks, the second year I've made string blocks, the second year I have made string triangles and the third year I've make happy scrappy house blocks. Hopefully I'll have enough house blocks for a quilt in November.
To see what others made with their green scraps this week go here Saturday morning.
