RSC 15: week 26: The end of pale blue

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge is hosted by Angela at Soscrappy, who gives a different colour each month and many quilters concentrate on using that colour for the whole month. Some make blocks of  their own choosing, but Angela also publishes block patterns to use in a sampler quilt. This month's colour is pale blue, and last month's was green.

Clockwise from top left: Churn Dash, Woven four-patches, Split pin wheel and Ohio Crossroads
I've been away in Ireland and the UK for nearly four weeks, so was a bit behind. I've caught up now though, and made four blocks at the beginning of this week.

I shall be linking up to
RSC 15
this afternoon, so pop over there to see what other blue wonders have been produced this week.

Yesterday afternoon I posted my impression of the West of Ireland so go and have a look if you're interested; it's high on photos and low on text.

Happy sewing

Marly.

The blocks look great on the dark blue. Good choice. I enjoyed your Ireland photos, moody or bright. Did you stop in at the Quilty Inn?

Lovely blocks with the dark blue background. Nice to travel but great to be back home. Glad yu had time to get caught up.

nice looking blocks! I made my blocks as a disappearing 4 patch, using 3" blocks. I cut 1" away from the center... it's just like a D9P, but with a 4 patch...

These are great. I'm gonna have to pay attention to next year's RSC project when I have fewer WIPs on my list. I love the rainbow quilts I've seen from the project. Have you photographed all your blocks together for this year's project yet? I bet they're so fun to play with. :-)
