The Rainbow scrap challenge is being run again this year over at So Scrappy and the colour for January is red.....this got me thinking while going through my scraps for the snap bag that there is quite a lot of red waiting to be used up.
I have often thought about making a scrappy log cabin quilt using smaller strips on the light side of the block to give a curved illusion and I think that this will be the perfect project to work on during the year. All that is needed to be done each month when the colour is announced is to make 4 blocks of that colour. Each block will be 9" finished so when joined every colour will finish up at being 18" square. Very doable. My OMG for January is to make 4 red blocks.
Have you ever seen clouds like these before? I have not and fortunately for us we escaped what came out of them later on in the day.
I hope that we are as lucky today as more wild storms are being forecast for this afternoon.
I along with 12 other ladies were invited to attend a "thank you" lunch by the organiser of the charity that my quilting group supports by sewing library bags throughout the year which are in turn filled with stationery supplies and sent to disadvantaged children in Sri Lanka. Some of the ladies also make dresses for the little girls in orphanages and I have also offered to make some during the year.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
