Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013


Are you participating in RSC13 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013)?  If not, why not?  It's a great way to use up some scraps...I've been watching this project evolve since mid-year last year and decided this year, I'm gonna give it a try because....I have a TON of scraps in all sorts of colors!

 I've decided to work with just one pattern for the year and make a few blocks each month using the color selected for that month.  I just don't have the time to spend on an entire project (start to finish) each month.  So here's what I came up with...
  

Oh yeah, and when I say a few blocks...I only meant like 16 or 17, ya know...but, they're only 4".  And aren't they just the most adorable little bowties???  These are my 16 blocks in January's color, PINK!



I'm working from a patten called Bow-Dacious! found in Bonnie Hunter's book Adventures with Leaders & Enders.  To find out more about Bonnie and her amazing scrappy patterns, check out her website/blog at Quiltville.com.

What fun bow tie blocks. They will look great in all the colors of the rainbow. Best of all, think of all the scraps you will use! Welcome to the rainbow scrap challenge.

Too darned cute (and tiny). I never thought of using 4Ps for the bow tie. Great idea.

This is a great idea! I will enjoy watching you make blocks for this quilt every week.

What a great project for the RSC 2013. Leaders and enders are great to have around.

I too am making Bow-dacious!!!!! I only got the little 4 patch part sewn so far, haven't made them into bows yet! Oh this will be exciting to watch your quilt too.
