Oh Scrap! : Happy 2022

 I don't know about everyone else, but I am so happy to put 2021 in the rearview mirror.

Let's all have hope that this new year is a better one.

A new year also means the Rainbow Scrap Challenge starts back up again.  I read through the lines on Angela's Instagram account and figured out early that red was going to be the color for January.  So I got an early start and already have some blocks to share.

Here are my Two Bits blocks in red.  I had made some in 2021 so I didn't need too many.

I think I need just nine more blocks - I probably need just about every rainbow color still so I will just poke along with this project for now.

And here are my red Chaser blocks.  The pattern doesn't have the green flip triangles in it - it was just something I have been thinking about and wanted to try.

The little pinwheels they create kind of get lost in all that is going on but I still think they are a fun little surprise.  I am looking forward to seeing this quilt evolve.

Do you have your RSC blocks picked out for the new year?


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  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 like both of those projects very much, Cynthia. Have fun filling out your block sets for the RSC and Scrappy New Year to you!!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I like all of them - it is nice to work with colors of the month I think.

Gretchen Weaver said...

You have some fun cute projects for RSC in 2022, happy stitching!

Rebecca Grace said...

What a cool idea, adding log cabin sides to a churn dash block. I haven't seen that before but now I'm envisioning how your RSC quilt is going to look and it looks fabulous in my mind's eye. Happy New Year!

Red is a good color for January - warm! (It's cold here!) I like those little pinwheels, too - they're a good surprise. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

THose will be great for 2022! and way to read between the lines ;-)

Susie H said...

Thanks for clarifying about Red for January. I don't have IG but saw that a few other RSC friends had hinted that red might be the color of the month. Two Bits & Chaser look like great 2022 RSC blocks!

Chantal said...

I love your Chaser blocks. The pinwheels are a nice addition. I haven't decided what I'm doing for RSC2022 but it will come to me. For my Personal Rainbow UFO Challenge, red is "start a new projet"! Doesn't it sound like taking a break before starting to work? LOL. ;^)

You have some fun projects in the works. I adore the Churn Dash blocks. Happy quilting and thank you for hosting the link party.

I am loving your chaser blocks! Your use of coloration makes for great movement. The snow is almost gone and I am working on my WIP list for the new year.

Those little pinwheel corners are a great design element. Off to a nice start on red as well. Happy New Year!

Pamela Arbour said...

You have two great starts for RSC. It's always good to have a plan! I look forward to seeing them grow.

Kate said...

Both of your RSC projects are really fun and very scrappy. Looking forward to seeing what other scrappy goodness you work on in 2022. And yes let's hope that 2022 is a much better year!

I like those little Pinwheels appearing in your Chaser blocks. I'm always interested to find secondary patterns or blocks in a patchwork design.
I'm only just cottoning on to this years RSC. I think I will follow Angela's lead and try making Courthouse Step Blocks from scrap strips.
