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.
