Oh Scrap! : RSC Green

For the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, the color for the month of November is lime green.  I finished my RSC15 quilts so I have already picked a block for 2016 and started sewing together some of the blocks.




 I am still on the fence as to whether I am going to also make an alternate star block so for now, I am only making two blocks each month until I get a feel for how this is going to look.



 For far I only have blocks for lime and brown.  I also could just add some sashing.  I don't feel the need to make a decision yet.  I always feel quilts will tell you what they want to become.

What about you - Have you been sewing with scraps this week?

*****************************
Now it is time to link up and share what scrappy projects you have worked on this week.  Here are the details for linking up:
  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!
Quilting is more fun than Housework

You are right the quilts always tell what they want to become.Your blocks lime and brown are great together, very inspiring. I am thinking of starting my journey inh the Rainbow Challagen next year. Have a happy scrappy week! Hugs

Wait what? Doesn't the So Scrappy year go Jan-Dec? I'm confused...(shocker) but this is the first time I've followed her colour of the month! Trust you to have a jump on NEXT year's quilt!!

Your lime and brown look very happy together!
Plenty of time to decide how they'll go together, right? (That's my story...)

I really like your 2016 block!

I love that you are waiting for this to evolve before committing to the star block. I look forward to seeing what you do.

The green and brown look great together. I have a number of RSC projects that I'm waiting for them to tell me what they want to be. At the moment, most of them are UFOs.

Making a final decision can wait! I am 100% sure you will come up with the perfect idea! Everyday is a scrap day around my house!

That lime green is wonderful, especially with the brown. I think I'd like to join in with this project next year too. Look forward to seeing how yours comes together.

Wow! Already started on 2016??? You are so ahead of the game. I still have 2014 languishing away because I ran out of the background fabric and then didn't keep up with the colors. One day, I'll get over the fact that the whites don't match and get enough made for at least a wall quilt! Maybe I'll try again in 2016 but use scrap every thing!

Yay! I love green. Your quilt will be so fresh and wonderful.

Beautiful blocks! Love the variety of prints in them. I agree. Blocks say what they need when they are ready to be turned into a quilt top.

Great blocks and it will be fun to see your 2016 quilt!
