Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Wrapping up the Sampler

Autumn ended in the deep freeze this week.  From highs in the 60's on Monday to highs in the low 30s by Wednesday.  There is snow in the forecast for this weekend.  My plans for the weekend are to stay tucked into my nice and toasty sewing room and avoid going out as much as possible. 

It's been a while since I've posted about the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  For some reason getting I really stalled out on finishing up the brown blocks.  Those were finally finished off last night.

I really didn't want a lot of brown, so I didn't make all 12 that were posted.  Once those were finished, the rest of the blocks were located and I started playing around on the design wall.

If I go with an 8 x 10 layout, just one more block is needed.   I'm thinking to make up another purple block.  I'm not sure I like all the browns in that one corner.  I may split them up, move  half up to the upper left corner.  I just put the blocks up by color, there will be lots more moving things around before I'm ready to start stitching the rows together.  How about black sashing?  I'll have to play around with that thought for a bit too.  

This is one of those projects, that I'm sad to see come to an end.  It's been a lot of fun.  Though I still have to finish up the Inverted Star blocks that were this year's challenge block and the Butterfly blocks that I started as part of last year's challenge.  I still have half the month to get those done.  Maybe I'll actually get all these blocks into quilt tops before the end of the year.  My Coffee Cup blocks from the 2012 challenge still need to be set together.  Well there's still December for that  right?

  11. What you have up on the design wall is looking really good although I think I'd probably split up the browns too!

    I'd love to see your coffee cups and butterflies made up -- it was such fun following along as you made them. And I've already told you many times that I love the Inverted Star blocks.
