It's always a dilemma which block to pick for the challenge. I've done some fun ones. The first was coffee mugs, back in 2012. Still not a finished quilt.

The next year it was the Butterfly blocks. Those aren't a finished quilt either.

For 2014 it was the Inverted Star blocks. Those are still in their box waiting to be set together.

Two RSC projects were started in 2015. The first was the Twinkle Star blocks. Not finished either.

The second RSC quilt of 2015 was Angela's sampler quilt. Flame Test did get finished.

And was promptly confiscated by Drama Teen. She uses it regularly as a cuddle quilt in her room. It's going to college with her.
Last year was probably the most challenging block I've ever tried, the Vintage Dresses. Which as I just finished the last block, isn't a finished quilt either.

There's a definite trend with my RSC blocks, they don't seem to be ending up in finished quilts. One reason is that I've had a hard time deciding on a setting once the blocks are done. There is a plan for Vintage Dresses, so I'm hopeful that quilt will get put together this year.
Considering my poor track record with finishing my RSC projects, I decided to try something new for 2017. I used Electric Quilt to draft the finished quilt so I can assemble the quilt as the blocks are finished. I'm not going to show the mock up of the quilt, but here are this year's blocks.
The paper pieced Fan blocks are going to use the cool colors, purple, green, teal and blue. I didn't get my background fabric washed and pressed until yesterday so I didn't get very far with my first block, but it is started.
There will be four 7.5" fan blocks and four 3.5" fan blocks for each cool color.
The warm colors of red, orange, yellow and maybe red-violet are going into modified Log Cabin blocks.
There will be four or five 7.5" blocks in each of the warm colors.
So this year there is a plan for the blocks. I'm hopeful that means I'll have at least a finished flimsy at the end of this year's challenge. I'm heading off for a second cup of coffee, them I'm going to check all the links over at Soscrappy to see past and future rainbow scrappy goodness.
