I decided to participate in the 2015 Rainbow scrappy challenge without a lot of thought beyond, it would be good to use up some of my scraps and use my new Go cutter to do it. So I made a heap of leaves for my leaders and enders project which I blogged about in a previous post.
I took the easy way out after that and made these 9 patch blocks and one four patch star block (using 2.5" squares) ...but I quickly lost interest and haven't been back to them.
But then this morning I saw this block when I was reading what the other challenge participants had been making. And I knew that I
needed wanted to make another quilt using this block!

Of course because I am avoiding finishing my basket quilt, suddenly I had to have a clean up in the sewing room and found this little plum toned table runner (previously made using orphan blocks). It just needed a little bit of quilting and the binding. So at least I can say I finished something, !
And in my continuing theme of procrastination I have been mending jeans....and deconstructing a pair for patches...and perhaps a bag...if I can find the pattern I fancied using - obviously my clean up wasn't good enough!
Oh and I started the cutting for a new project, from my new Kim Diehl book "Simple Appeal".
No I am not making blue baskets...probably should, but I am a red girl at heart :)
Happy quilting Sue.
