More Rainbow Scrap Challenge Blocks

Starting the 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge with blue has been perfect for me.  This week, I found another group of blue 2.5 inch strips.  I still don't remember why I cut them, but I'm happy to be able to use them in a project.  I was able to add 3 rows to the Chevron Quilt I started last week.

I added 3 more Happy House blocks. I've decided that I will use red for all of the chimneys. They're a little drab, but I plan on using bright fabrics for the wonky sashing.


I also finished one postage stamp block and four 4 patch blocks.  The blues look very grey, but it's snowing here today so the light level is not very flattering.


This weekend, I plan to work on 2 UFOs.  First I am unsewing.  I cut the borders for my Bungle Jungle quilt and took a photo before I started pinning them.  After looking at the picture, I realized I had sewn two of the rows incorrectly.  I plan on finishing it over the weekend and cutting the borders for my RSC 2013 postage stamp quilt.
I didn't mark it, but you can see the fifth and sixth rows have 2 giraffe blocks and 2 aqua elephant block together.
It's Scrap Happy Saturday so I'll be linking up with the other quilters participating in the 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge  There are always lots of great projects to see.

  3. I usually find the mistakes at my quilt by taking a picture. It's funny how it works that way. Love your chevron quilt!

  5. I like your chevron so much better than the diagonal kind. At least when it comes to making the blocks. Such a great start on your quilt.

  6. Nice chevron and postage stamp blocks. Cute happy scrappy houses with fussy cut windows. Your DP9 Bungle Jungle looks good to me. Such a fun fabric collection.

  9. Katie, there is nothing drab about your house blocks. I love them and I think the little characters in the windows are adorable. And I think your chevron quilt will be stunning.
    Debbie's coming over Tuesday morning for a couple of hours. Wanna join us?

  10. What a unique way to make chevrons. Most I've seen are made of HSTs. I always love houses with fussy cut windows. Cute. I didn't notice any mistakes on Bungle Jungle!
