More Rainbow Blocks

I’ve not worked on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks in awhile….missing the August and September RSC colors of light green and orange.  I sewed up the string blocks and used them to make the bar blocks.  It feels good to get back on track….next I’ll make the pinwheel and churn dash blocks 🙂

Fall Design Wall

The new First Saturday blocks started in August and are in the colors of fall.  The top right block is my test block but it fits right in 🙂

I scored 2 yds of an old Moda print from the Goodwill Clearance center….$0.79 a pound 🙂  A couple of fun “fox tails” were acquired as well so with the finish of a baby quilt with only some of my fabric, the net stash in went down a smidgen 😉
