I love color which is probably one of the reasons I enjoy quilting so much and get such pleasure from seeing other people's quilting ideas. Last year I watched several bloggers following SoScrappy and her Rainbow Scrap Challenge and this year I'm joining in (RSC14). Every month she selects a color and the challenge is to make something using that color. January 2014 is blue and I'm going to use RSC14 like a BOM so that at the end of the year I've made enough blocks for a quilt.
I've selected the Pig's Tail block from Eleanor Burns' book El's Kitchen. It's a 12" block made from 2 colors (also called Snail's Trail) and I'll keep the background in nice safe white. I'm going to try to do 2 blocks each month in the designated color. That should create a decent sized rainbow quilt. Here is my first January block.
