2016 Fun and Challenges

Are you sewing along with any BOMS, QALs etc in 2016. I am keen to join in this Rainbow Scrap Challenge fun:



http://superscrappy.blogspot.com/p/rsc16.html

Like many participants I am going to choose my own block and simply change the color each month to utilize scraps. But I am eager to watch her COLUMN pattern as other participants make it!! I designed this block recently and it kind of reminded me of a swoon block which made me wonder...



What it would look like in different colors:





I decided I wanted to try to make a quilt of rainbow stars like these. 

So that is the block I have chosen! They'll be scrappy stars but colorful! I need to buy a background fabric to do this quilt justice but then I will try to use scraps and supplement with some stash as needed.


I love to play with scraps as evidenced by these all time favorite finishes of mine:


Broken Herringbone QAYG



Scrappy improv pieced double sided quilt


So this Challenge offered over at http://superscrappy.blogspot.com/ seems like the perfect fit for me this year.

I'll also make a monthly improv pieced block in the color of the RSC challenge because I had already started on a new improv pieced quilt before I decided to join the challenge, with this predominantly green block:



I am of course also hosting my own paper piecing BOM at http://adventurousquilter.yolasite.com/ and another one here: http://www.crqc.org/bom_and_challenges
So that'll keep me busy in amongst all my whimsical starts that become UFOs
