First 2021 RSC Finish

 I love this time of year.  Not only is it my favorite season, it is also the time of year when quilters wrap up their Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts.  They are always so exciting to see.

I have finished my scrappy Well Suited quilt.  When I started this quilt, I wanted to work on cleaning out some of the "unwanted" big chunks of scraps clogging up my scrap bins.

I used solid scraps for the center flying scraps and then paired them with a coordinating print.  This quilt was all about making space in the scrap bins!

I could have used just about anything on the back but I was in the mood for red.  So I used a print I had purchased from Connecting Threads.  I also used a red print I had in my stash for the binding.

Well Suited is the first pattern module of my Scrap Mixology series.  This is the fifth or sixth quilt I have made and each one looks so different!

The Scrap Mixology patterns are designed around a basic block.  Each module is about 14 pages and includes the instructions for the block along with lots of ways to "mix up" the design through small changes in color placement or components.

This version is very similar to the one I just completed except I used a color placement that gives the effect of a woven design.

Here is ne I made using black and whites in the 9 patches and primary colored prints.

This one is one of my favorites.  I used the pinwheel option for this one.

But I do like this one too!

So far I have completed three Scrap Mixology patterns.  I am hoping to release the fourth one later this month.  Wait until you see the quilts made for this one!

You can see all the Scrap Mixology patterns I have released to date on this page.  They are available as pdf downloads in my Etsy shop and my Payhip store.

All of the Scrap Mixology blocks make great Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts.  
It is almost time to start choosing blocks for 2022.

I have three more RSC quilts to finish before the end of the year.
I had better get sewing!

All holiday fabric is on sale at Connecting Threads.  Grab it before it is gone!

So, did the RSC quilt have an impact on the scrap bins? Somehow I never feel like I can make much of a dent, haha. Fun finish. Have a great weekend. :)

Wonderful scrap quilts! You're right, we need to start thinking ahead to January and a new year of the RSC. Hmm, lots of possibilities!

The last quilt is my favorite also. So much so that I am bumping it up to the top of my Scrappy To Do List! Looking forward to your next Mixology segment.
