The artist in me was in need of self care this week. I hadn’t reached burnout, but I sensed a little TLC in the way of simple work and play was in order. How does the manifest itself in the studio? For me, it means launching into something indulgent, and simple project. So, I have begun
2022 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This week I will show you my progress in pictures. Let the Fun/TLC Begin
This is a mock up, or blue print to determine how the two alternating blocks will play with each other for the quilt I will create for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I purposefully selected blocks that used only squares, half square triangles and quarter square triangles.
This is the guide I will use to cut and piece Block #1. Since my fabric choices will change depending on what color I use, I will ignore the fabric in the guide, except to remind me where the color of the month goes.
The cutting and patch count diagram for Block #2.
This is color layout for the quilt. I am assuming the colors assigned in 2021 will be the same ones assigned in 2022.
In order to make sure I create the correct number and style of block for each color, I created a guide.

Kudos to my husband who took this picture. He did an excellent job of accurately capturing the color, the quilting and being sure the lighting is even across the quilt. The big change this week is the addition of “buttons” or appliquéd circles at the junctures of the orange peels. In order not to distract from the design, I purposefully selected fabric scraps for the buttons that blend versus contrast with colors in the tangental peels.
