Oh Scrap! : Rainbow Scrap Challenge Blocks

I am happy to report, I have sewn up all of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks for the month!  The color for March is purple, which is one of my favorite colors.










First up was a kaleidescope of butterflies for my RSC16 Sampler quilt. Angela had not released a pattern yet when I started making these little blocks so mine might look a little different than others.













I also made a couple of chain blocks and a purple piglet.



Here are all my chain blocks together.  They look a bit of a mess but I do have a plan for them.  It will be a lot more colorful when I am finished with it!




  And here are my three little pigs I have completed so far.  This month, I made my pig a bit larger.
I have no idea what I am going to make with these blocks but I sure do enjoy their company in my sewing room.
(If you want to make some of your own, here is the pattern.)

So that is what I did with scraps this week, now it is time to link up and share what scrappy projects you have worked on.  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!

Love you butterflies. And pigs, too! I'm partial to purples, too. Carry on your stash-busting ways! Always great to see what you come up with.

You have mama and her baby piglets! Cute,cute,cute! Your chain blocks look great! This is going to be a great scrappy quilt!

Your butterflies really are about to take off in a second. I like that. I'm trying to resist piggies, not to mention cats, foxes, fish and flamingoes. We will have to open an international zoo to house them all.
