๐ŸŒˆ RSC Light/Lime Green ๐Ÿ

October's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is light green & lime green! Angela @ SuperScrappy posts a color every month.
The pattern I'm using is "Scrap Happy Rainbow Connection", by Amy Smart, available on her website or from Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine, Issue 85, where I first spotted it. ⤵️
Here are close-ups of some of the 12 blocks I made this month:
My final RSC block count for 2022:

January:        Red                             9 blocks
February:      Aqua/Teal                  21 blocks
March:          Yellow/Gold               16 blocks
April:             Pink                           18 blocks
May:             Sage/Forest Green    32 blocks
June:            Bright/Dark Blue        24 blocks
July:             Purple                        31 blocks
August:        Orange                      16 blocks
September:  Light Blue                  13 blocks
October:       Light Green               12 blocks
Total:                                            192 blocks

I have exactly enough blocks to make 4 throw-sized quilts, 48 blocks each! Now I need 4 design walls!?! November and December are for assembly and quilting. We'll see!
I was able to whittle down my scrap strip basket this year. I'm not entirely sure what I'll do with what remains--white, cream, brown, grey and black strips!?! I'll be checking out all of the inspiration at the Scrap Happy Saturday link party!!!

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy

  2. Wow you really got on the ball and finished your monthly color already, good for you! Looking forward to seeing how you divide up the colors for the 4 quilts.

  3. Oh, wow! I'm happy to hear you've made progress with cutting down on your scrap stash--it seems like scraps multiply in my house no matter how many are used. Can't wait to see your quilts, they're going to be beauties. Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

  4. I love the green blocks...so cheery. It will be fun to see how these 4 quilts come together. I am at a loss for ideas on how to auction so many quilts at one time! Maybe 4 vinyl tablecloths on the floor or tables in an auditorium with a stage where you can get up and see them....good luck!

  5. My scrap bin never seems to diminish! Happy that yours is under control. I sense a neutral quilt coming. Thanks for joining the Put Your Foot Down linky Party

  6. I was just wondering how much you decreased your scrap stash with those blocks. Maybe you could do the same with the remaining colors, just use a colored background? Will be fun to see all the quilts!

  8. That is quite an achievement. So many wonderful blocks.
    Yes, now you have to sort out the combinations and layouts. Good luck! (Karen/SunburntQuilts.)

  9. Yeah, the last twelve. Looking forward to seeing your designs. I hope you have lots of fun messing up the whole living space with all your block groupings until you find which four combinations it will be ;) xo

  11. I love the purple and pink hints in the green blocks. Pretty tiny round leaves, shells, and music notes fabrics too, you always make such beautiful combos in your blocks.
    I'm going to add one grey or black RSC block, and some multicolored too, as it can be an option for November and December, according to Angela's planning.
    Thank you for sharing these beautiful blocks, and linking up today ;)

  12. Wow! I'm so impressed with the quantity of blocks you made. Great job! I can't seem to whittle down my scrap bins in spite of sewing string blocks, etc from them. My theory is that it just "fluffs up" those scraps and keeps the bin full.

  13. That's an amazing amount of blocks - they're going to make beautiful quilts! It's always fun seeing your close-ups of different scraps. I saw one that I once had in my stash - the turquoise daisy sort of flowers. Wish I had more of that one!

  14. Your RSC is looking fabulous and still tempting me -- I do have all those leftover strips from my pineapple log cabin, but I'm just not ready to face them again quite yet! ;-)
