I've checked off the list of 6 inch sampler blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The 2014 challenge that is. It seems I stopped after July's red blocks and didn'tmoved on to greens of the light and bright variety. So I have a few blocks to catch up on. Well 29 to be precise. Except that now it's 26 because today I made these 3. And the title of today's post came from the background fabric which I decided while playing with these today that I LOVE. It really is a time warp moment because it is and old print that I picked up at Fabric-a-brac last year. I'd forgotten how much fun it is to make these little blocks. They work up largely from scraps - and I mean little scraps like left over binding strips, charm squares, those little giveaway pieces of fabric you get in goodie bags at shows... you don't need a fat quarter bundle of an entire fabric collection to put together some little squares.
Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion. The top is finished, and the backing is sewn together ready to go, so this "just" needs quilting.
And another mystery from Bonnie. This one has been around for a few years. I got stuck trying to find perfect border fabric and when everything seemed to look a bit flat I decided to piece one instead. So I am working on making a pieced red and white border for this, in the style of Andee at The Modern Diary
So I have some goals. What fun!
