Rainbow Scrap Challenge: halfway marker

Angela at Soscrappy is organising a rainbow scrap challenge this year, and posting a number of 6" blocks each week which some of the participants, including me, are making. I'm glad she does the maths to make all the blocks finish at 6". Angela also chooses the colour each month which, in the first six months, have been:

January
Blue
February
Pink
March
Teal
April
Purple
May
Green
June
Yellow

Here are my blocks for the first half year:

I still have more blocks to make in most of the colours to maintain this layout, but I'm waiting until the end of the year to decide definitely.

I'm linking up with:

Soscrppy WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced Sew Fresh Quilts

so head over there and see what other busy fingers have produced.

Happy Sewing

Marly.
