New Blocks!

This year, I am hoppin' on the RainbowScrapChallenge!
I came up with a block that utilizes my "odd-strips" bin, as well as my heaping neutrals bin.
I'm thinking I will make two of these each month.

My second one is in-process. I start by making a panel with blue strips trimmed to 1.5", and neutral strips trimmed to 3.5".
The strips are about 18.5" long.
Next, I'll cross-cut the panel into 1.5" strips, and of course, I sew them all back together again.
That is what we do, yes?
Well, it isn't quite that simple actually:)
I had to rip a few seams and re-position them to make the 12.5" block.
This whole process created a bunch of leftover scraps that I trimmed to look like this,
I think it will make a nice border!
Perhaps the blocks will look cool set on point.
They are certain to create some fun, design wall time!

Following are the lovely places I am linking this block,
then I am back to the sewing grind!

  2. These are fun! Lots of possibilities for a final layout. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  3. What a fun block! Those extra bits are so tempting.

  4. These look fun! I made my RSC16 blocks for the month, but I think I might need to take on a second project because I want to make a bigger dent in my scraps!

  5. You've chosen some interesting projects for the RSC. I'll be looking forward to seeing them progress as the months pass!

  6. Cool block! I like the blues with the neutrals - really clean looking.
