Roses {RSC September}

After another busy weekend last week, I'm finally back with more red Farmer's Wife blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I was able to complete 6 blocks over the last two weeks! Hooray!

#79 Silver Lane, #80 Single Wedding Star, #81 Snowball
#82 Spider Legs, #83 Spider Web, #84 Spool

While I didn't end up using a ton of yellow as accents in these blocks, I did try to use lots of different shades of red in the different blocks. I was also able to find quite a few red and white prints to use as well.

Four more blocks to make this month, and then I'll have 88 out of 111 blocks completed! Since I skipped August, I will need to make a few extra blocks at the end to catch up (I originally planned to do 11 blocks a month for 10 months) and I think I will try to make blocks that "blend" between my already made blocks for when I put it all together.

Sharing at Scrap Happy Saturday!

  5. Lovely contrast in each block. Great variety of reds. Blending blocks sound like a perfect strategy to get the number you need.

  8. I love Spider Legs. It would make a great quilt all by itself :) it feels nice to have sewing goals doesn't it? I'm just realising that deadlines work for me.
