Oh Scrap! : SoScrappy and RSC16

Every Sunday, scraps are the highlight here on this blog.  Lots of scrappy projects are shared by scrappy quilters from all over this great planet.  But I still get comments that there are many of you that say you just don't know how to get started on sewing your scraps.  

Well, I have the perfect motivation for you to get started.  Are you familiar with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge that Angela over at SoScrappy hosts every year?  I think it is a great way to keep you sewing with your scraps a bit each month and at the end of the year, you have enough blocks to complete a rainbow quilt.

I am not going to go into the specifics as Angela has written up a great post with everything you need to know about how the Rainbow Scrap Challenge works.
Believe me, she makes sewing up those scraps so easy!

What I personally appreciate about the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is I get to pick my block, I get to decide how many blocks I make each month and I get to decide how my quilt looks in the end.  I can make the blocks as difficult or as easy as I want and I can plan a large or a small quilt.
 I really do hope you join in on the fun!

I ended up making two quilts with the blocks I made in 2015.  I only had to spend about an hour a month to sew my blocks....Easy Peasy!

And remember you can link your projects up with Angela for Scrap Happy Saturday and share your posts here on Oh Scrap! on Sundays!


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!

I love your nine patches! Nine patches are one of my favorite blocks, and combining bright colors with b/w prints always makes me smile.
And I love the RSC, too. I'm really happy with my rainbow Ohio stars, and I know that I never would have made them without Angela's inspiration.

Your rainbow scrap quilt is very pretty. I'm tempted to join in the process in 2016.
