For weeks, I have been contemplating a new block for my next Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt. Like the 9 patch quilt I recently finished, I wanted a block that could easily be sewn without a lot of cutting or digging through scraps.
I knew I wanted something that used a lot of 2.5" squares because I always have a bunch of these on hand. Having them organized by color makes it really easy to pick fabrics for each block.
So this morning, I just decided to make a really simple chain block. It consists of just squares that can be easily sewn as a leader and ender project. And it gives me another excuse to play with low volumes as a background fabric.
In no time at all, a second one was sewn. I decided to start my next RSC quilt using the brown color for October. These blocks will finish at 12" so for a nice big lap quilt, I will probably make a total of 20 to 30 blocks.
Each month I plan on sewing 2 blocks. I have no idea how I will join them...I will need to finish quite a few more blocks until I start thinking about that.
Until then, they will just be pinned to my design wall and allowed to grow into a quilt!
