Oh Scrap! : Garden Blocks

Last month, I decided to start a new Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt.




Remember my little red strawberry block I made for July?





It is now joined by a cute orange tangerine block made from 2.5" squares.





A chubby pumpkin block was also added to the mix.  I decided to use 2.5" strips for this block.



I will also be "planting" a short row of carrots in my RSC garden quilt.  
I used Sally's carrot pattern as a starting point.

I am planning on my blocks for this quilt being all different sizes.  It will be a puzzle to get them into a quilt top once I complete the rainbow.  Can't wait!

Yours blocks are so cute. This is the kind of quilt you love the most I think; the puzzling quilt. I don't seem to have the brain for that. I just sit here and watch you have fun. Enjoy!! ;^)

Love the "Garden Quilt" concept! There's a fruit or veggie for almost every colour, so you should end up having a great quilt!

"Taste the rainbow!" Oh wait, that's Skittles, isn't it? But it's appropriate for your new quilt :)
