This is the last Saturday in November, so it's the last chance for "shades of gray" blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Block three using that color scheme was finished last week.

The bright colors in the print really help keep the black from looking too dark up on the design wall. I've always loved this fabric, I have yards of it left just waiting for a special project. I should audition it as a border for this quilt. I still need 6 cups to finish out the layout I had planned. I've picked out the fabric for those and actually have one almost assembled. I hope to finish those up this month, then spend December assembling the top.
I've already been scheming for next year's challenge. I've got a couple of ideas I'm playing with. One is this project.
This is a real rough layout, but the basic idea is there. This butterfly block has been on my bucket list for years. I've also been playing with the idea of doing houses and or hot air balloons (also blocks that are on my bucket list), but haven't done any playing in EQ with those two motifs. There's still time to pick one and change my mind a few times.
