I haven't yet jumped back into the Rainbow Scraps Challenge this year (and it's already March!), but since I did make some blocks from yellow scraps, I am considering myself officially back in the game.
Besides the yellow hexagon ring I shared on Sunday, I also made 4 of the foundation pieced Briar Patch blocks.
I've now made around 50 of these paper foundation pieced blocks. It felt like time to figure out how they would be set and how many more of what colors I need.
I can't say why I have been in a "finishing" state of mind–it's so unlike me. Rather than making new rainbow scraps challenge blocks for new projects as I planned, my focus has been on finishing up the blocks and quilts from RSC projects from the past. So, while I haven't been regularly checking in with something made form the designated color each week, I have been digging into my scraps to work toward some scrappy finishes.
And now, I find myself looking at the Briar Patch project to see what I need to take it to a finish. At this point, it feels like a bit of a scrappy puzzle to be solved. I thought it was a good time to pull out the blocks and put them on the design wall in an approximation of the layout to see what I thought and where I am.
As you can see, I need to make quite a few more blocks in almost every color. If I decide to split the "purple" blocks into red-violet and blue-violet, as I have them on the design wall now, I'll need even more of those. But even in this state, I can see that I'm going to like it.
A big chunk of time spent paper-piecing blocks is just what it needs to get the rest of the blocks done, which may make this project is a good candidate to take to the guild retreat next month.
I'm joining the lists for Scraptastic Tuesday and WIP Wednesday and (kind of late to the game), Scrap-Happy Saturday.
