Oh Scrap! : Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016

It is a new year so it is time to pick new Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks.  For January, Angela over at So Scrappy has picked the color blue so I quickly sewed up some blocks today.




Every month I have decided to sew up two chain blocks and one little pig block in the chosen color.  These blocks are 12" so by the end of the year, I am sure I will have enough blocks for more than one quilt.




I was initially going to just sew up the chain blocks but, well, the piglet blocks were just too darn cute!




I sewed up a few test blocks last year so I already have 8 blocks finished!

If you are looking for a fun scrap event, you should check out the link up and see what others are making.  Angela is also putting together a great scrappy sampler done in columns.

 I might just have to join in on the fun there too!

**********************************


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!

OK, I must admit, those pigs are just way too cute! Looks like you will have plenty of blocks by the end of the year. Great start!

Those pig blocks are just too adorable!

I love the combination of blocks--piglets surrounded by scraps. And FYI, I posted the description of making a right facing piglet on Christmas Day along with instructions on how to make the block finish to 6X8 inches.

Those little pigs are sooo cute and the chain blocks make a perfect lay-out for them. It will be a pretty quilt.

Love those piggy blocks! I used to use "Les Trois Petits Cochons" play to teach French to my grade 7s, so piggies are near and dear to my heart. Where did you get the pattern or did you design it yourself?
