Rainbow Scrap Challenge for January....complete!

 I'm off to a good start with my January blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This month the colour is pink.

I'd decided to make at least ten blocks per month for my Chapman Coverlet to help move this quilt along a bit. Usually this is an excellent take-along project....but with a "stay at home" order now in effect there is nowhere to take this along to! 

The blocks are only 2" finished, so they whip up in no time. Afterwards they will be sewn into "four-sies".

Below is  a picture of what I have accomplished so far. Some of the top ones have been sewn together.


I had a nice comment on Instagram from a quilter who has completed her Chapman Coverlet. I took a look at hers and she says it took 1400 blocks! I don't know if she meant the individual blocks or 1400 of the sewn-together ones. I'll be able to do the math, as she also told me how big her quilt is. 

I had the thought to calculate how big I want my quilt to be so I would know how many blocks I need....but I don't think I want to know just yet....sounds too scary, lol.

It's a pretty laid-back day today. I'm using some of the day to do some applique prep-work for my Curious Journey quilt. 

This BOM is a mystery quilt. Maybe after I complete a few more of the small blocks I'll put everything up on the design wall to get an idea of how this may go together. I know some people can't handle the though of doing a mystery quilt...but I love them!....and, of course, I'm a sucker for a sewalong.

It's a beautiful, sunny day outside...we've been having such extremely dreary days lately. Maybe I'll put on some real clothes later and go for a walk to soak up some Vitamin D. 

I am linking up with SoScrappy for the RSC21 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge '21). 


  1. I so understand you. My hand sewing projects aren't getting any attention either because there's nowhere to take these take-along projects. Your blocks are so pretty ... and so small. Yikes! Enjoy! ;^)

  2. Your Chapman coverlet is definitely a long term project! I love the scrappy look of it. It was sunny here this morning when we were out for a walk. Cloudy again now. Have a great weekend.

  3. Chapman coverlet is so scrappy and pretty--love it!!
    Your "Bathing Beauties" look neat--I love to watch mysteries unfold, but not to do them...;))) hugs, Julierose

  4. You are braver than me, I couldnt handle a 2 inch finished block!

  5. OMG!! You are working on some really cute projects for the RSC!!!

  6. Wow! Your Chapman Coverlet blocks are so exciting! This will be an amazing quilt.

  7. Oh, the bathing beauties look to be a riot. Can't wait to see what you've got up on the design wall. Those tiny blocks look like a lot of fun and a good-looking quilt is in the making!
