Rainbow Scrap Challenge Mid Year Celebration

With half the year gone, Angela, hostess of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, at So Scrappy has invited all of the participants to post the blocks and projects they have made for the challenge this year.
As I started to gather the blocks, I was amazed to see how many I made.  Unfortunately, I wasn't as focused as I hoped to be.  My projects seem to be a little scattered, but I am enjoying them.

The blocks for the blue chevron quilt below were made during January.  Putting them together as a top will be my July project.

Each month I have been adding the chosen color to my Rainbow Chevron quilt.
In February, pink was the color and I started a pink chevron quilt.

The Ground Cover quilt below was made during the month for green and donated to the Hands 2 Help Challenge.

The  blocks below are from a Moda Bake Shop recipe called Dottie.

The Knot Blocks are from a tutorial by Angela at So Scrappy.  I will be tracing back to earlier months so that I will finish with four blocks of each color.  

I used The Happy House block tutorial from  Bonnie.  They will be placed in a wonky setting after all of the blocks are finished.

I'm not sure what I will be doing with the 96 four patch blocks I've made so far, but I'm sure they will come in handy. 

I started the Mod Log Cabin blocks in June and will continue adding colors as the challenge continues.

The Rainbow Postage Stamp blocks will be added to blocks I made for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in 2013.
It feels good to look back and see how much of my scrap bins and old stash has been used.  I am linking up with the Mid Year Celebration at Sew Scrappy.  There are lots of great projects made by other quilters participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge that you can check out.
