Each year I had read about the annual Rainbow Scrap Challenge organized by Angela of SoScrappy.BlogSpot. And finally, this year, I have decided to jump on the band wagon and join in. Angela writes, “Each month I will announce a color. Your job is to use your scraps to make something. A block, a few blocks, a small project, an entire quilt. Hopefully, by the end of the year, you will have enough blocks for a quilt, or a finished project or two”. This month the colour chosen was red.
What to stitch – that was the question. People seem to make all sorts of things, and the link-up is always fun to read. I decided to make some bow tie blocks, four each month, that shouldn’t be too hard. So here are my very first RSC 2019 blocks, nice and simple and didn’t take me too long at all.

Then I had another thought, perhaps a second project might be fun too. So then I made two Asterisk blocks, using selvedges. I’m not too sure whether I like these or not enough to continue each month – what do you think?

I know I have heaps of UFOs, but who doesn’t need another project or two to keep us happy and motivated?
