Rainbow Scrappy Challenge

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.


  1. You are amazing the amount of projects you churn out. I need to take a leaf out of your book. My intentions are good, but life gets in the way!!

  2. Love what your working on, both old and new. Your making good progress. Mending jeans is always a downer. What a good mum!

  3. Lots of creativity happening. Have fun.

  4. Great progress on your blues. Love those leader and ender blocks.
