Scrappy and Happy {RSC 2017 Plans}

Today is the day to share our plans for our projects for the 2017 edition of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) hosted by Angie at SoScrappy!


Rather than starting a whole new project this year, I am planning to use my WIPs as my RSC projects. I have two projects that will be my main focus:

1. Happy Houses
This is a project on my current WIP list that I haven't worked on in a while. These are Lori Holt houses from an older Quiltmaker magazine and I want to try to make at least one Happy House each month. These do require light blue for the sky and brown for the roofs, so I may need to use yardage (especially of the blue) to continue with these blocks.


2, Top Spin Leaders and Enders
My leader and ender project has made a lot of progress! I'll continue to work on this project all the time (since it is a leaders and enders project!) but I plan to work on it slightly more during the purple, pink, and green months -- including January!


Additionally, I'll be trying to work on whatever other scrappy WIPs that I have that happen to be the colors of the month in addition to my scrappy Stash Bee blocks each month. Purple actually happens to be the color I seem to have the least of currently -- I traded scraps with a friend last year and sent her mainly purple scraps for an all-purple quilt and a good portion of the remaining purple scraps were cut into squares for my Top Spin quilt.

  1. Use the RSC to prompt a rotation of your WIPs -- good thinking! Happy New Year!

  6. Alison, can you tellme what issue of Quiltmaker the Happy House block is in? I have a lot of back issues and have been looking for a good house block. I cut strips from yardage or fat quarters all the time to use for scraps. I guess I'm not very good at following rules.

  7. Great plan to use the RSC as a reason to keep those projects moving forward. Happy houses are going to make a great neighborhood someday soon.
