Well, that’s a loaded question, now isn’t it?! Hi friends! Thanks for stopping by. Today I am sharing with you my RSC2021 Color Challenge block!
The challenge for this month is to use our pink scraps to make our block(s). I decided, for my RSC21 challenge quilt, I would make crazy quilt blocks – or in my case, it’s more like improv crazy quilt blocks! I dug out all my pink scraps and left over larger pieces from cutting applique from fat quarters, and with no particular pattern in mind, set out to make a block. The only thing I did was to make the center fabric I used be bordered with five different pink fabrics. Like, well, a regular crazy patch block. The rest was just fun putting the colors together and making them different angles. When I got this block a bit larger than the size I wanted, I used my Creative Grids 12-1/2 inch square and trimmed it up. Then, I starched it well and ironed it. HINT: Starch and iron BEFORE you trim up your block! LOL Since I did not prewash any of this fabric, I think it would have been better to starch and then trim. At any rate, while it may be a tad wonky, I am pleased with how it turned out. Lesson learned! Without further ado, I present my January RSC21 crazy quilt block!
Doesn’t that look pretty? I like the way it looks on the black background fabric with my little pink clips and my new pink rotary cutter!! I haven’t decided yet if I will go back and add stitching to make it more the style of a crazy quilt. I really love this block, so in answer to the question posed earlier, yes, I went a bit crazy! But then, that seems to be my MO as of late!! I guess I’m just trying to fit in with our crazy world! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
Thanks so much for stopping by and indulging me in a little fun! See you in Tuesday!
