Rainbow Scrap Challenge--July--Blue

I'm continuing the Rainbow Scrap Challenge--I have really enjoyed making these blocks each month (though my scrap collection is no smaller than when I began!).


My July blocks are blue--not my favorite color, but I do have quite a bit of blue variety.



I'm looking forward to assembling this quilt--it is the first rainbow-themed one I have done.




In other news--I finished the quilt from the April multi-colored blocks. I didn't want to use them in my rainbow quilt, so I invented a way to use them on their own.

This is Stringing Beads, a quilt of my own design.



You can read about the process HERE.


Thanks again to soscrappy for this great challenge!

  11. Dear Eclectic Abuela,
    You have commented on my blog in the past so I know you like good writing. This comment is not about your quilting but about a new book by Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize winner, called Trajectory. It is four short stories and the writing is superb.
