Fun Border Blocks -- Scrap Saturday

The color for November for the RSC15 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge) is bright green.  Oh how I LOVE bright green!  I started a new project for the RSC15 (and RSC16).  I am making a block each month for a quilt called Folk Art Birds.  

I really liked making these border blocks for the project.  I need three or four of each color each month.  Here's my four bright green for November:



I posted my bird on Saturday.  For extra fun I am string piecing each folk art bird.  This block is a huge 17"!  My plan is to use the RSC color of the month and make one of the 12 bird blocks and three to four of the border blocks each month.  Fun, fun!  The sashings will just be fun scraps string pieced together.  (Bonus scrap buster!)

I also am considering this my Let's Book It Challenge.  With this new project I am also joining in with Sharon at Vroomans Quilts for the Let's Book It Challenge.  You can get inspiration from Sharon's linky party here.
 
This quilt is in the book Making Quilts w/Kathy Doughty.  You can find in on Amazon here.  I got it at my local library!  Woot woot!  Lately I am finding a LOT of books and patterns I need by using my local library's search engine.  If my local library doesn't have it, I can get it from another library in Ohio.  Cool, huh?

Check out what others are doing with the RSC15 color of the month, bright green on Angela's blog, Soscrappy.

  2. I love the way your first block knots in the middle. The bird quilt should be a fun scrappy stash buster.
