Chocolate Covered Strawberries {RSC February 2016}

This month in the 2016 Rainbow Scrap Challenge our color is brown with pink accents -- that is perfect for February and Valentine's Day! It makes me think about chocolate covered strawberries!

Here's my brown scrap stash:


This is actually more than I thought I had, so hopefully I will make a big dent in this! Here are my fabrics sorted into light, medium, and dark with my pink accent pile pulled too.


This month I'm making blocks 12-22 of the 1920s Farmer's Wife blocks. Unlike January where I only paper pieced one of the blocks, since a good chunk of these have odd angles or are set on point, I plan to paper piece the majority of these blocks this month.

I think adding the pink in keeps the brown from being too drab, and I am planning to use more pink this month as an accent than I did last month with the purple accents in the blue blocks.

Here are the first 2 blocks:


#12 - Broken Sugar Bowl and #13 - Buckwheat

These turned out so cute! The pink is a great accent. The one on the left is cut and pieced as normal, and the one on the right uses the paper piecing patterns and it turned out great!

Now on to making more of these!

Linking up at Scrap Happy Saturday!

  1. I agree that the pink goes really well as an accent with the brown, and your chocolate covered strawberry imagery works perfectly. If only I had some chocolate in the house... ;)
