Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2019 - A New Project

It's the first Saturday in the new year, which means it's time for new project for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.





Angela's color for January is red.  So I pulled out my red scraps and got to cutting. This is what I ended up with.



These are all from my scrap bins. So what  are they going to become?



It's a paper pieced block, one of Bonnie Hunter's patterns, Wild and Goosey.  Black will be the constant, used as the "wings" for the geese.  That block is only 3" finished, so this may end up being a multi year project as the blocks are  fiddly and they are slow to make.  But I've had Wild and Goosey on my quilt plan for the last two or three years, it was time it became a real project.  I think the final quilt will be well worth all the effort.  

Linking up with Soscrappy for the first 2019 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Linky Party.  And I'll be linking up with Oh Scrap on Sunday.

It does look fiddly, especially at that scale, but I know you can do it!

It may be fiddly, but it will use up so many tiny little bits of loveliness. Looking forward to seeing this one come together.

Great way to use up scraps and such a pretty block and quilt you will be making.

Oh yay! A new project. It’s like falling in love, isn’t it? I love what you’ve done so far. Red, black, and white is my fave color combo.

I really like the Wild and Goosey pattern! This looks like one of those to make a few pieces here and there in between bigger projects and eventually you'll have enough. Have fun!

I've done 'goosey' a couple of times now - fun pattern and great use of scraps. Your reds are real poppers.

Will this be a leader ender project for you? Or just a regular one?

It is looking fabulous! I love those reds! I also love that we can make beautiful things from our stash.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Red is such a pretty bright cheerful color--so even though they are small pieces, seeing the red should make the blocks go faster and easier!!!
luv, di

Great name for it! It does look difficult. You have a good collection of reds in your scrap bin. I had trouble coming up with enough in mine.

Looks like fun. Are you using Bonnie's tips on making this block? She makes it fast and accurate.

There is nothing like tiny blocks! Your blocks are going to be amazing, tedious, but amazing!
