Rainbow Challenge(s)

I think I will try to get caught up with my friend Cathy Tomm and those linked up with SoScrappy and the Rainbow Challenge.

For January it was the colour red. Well, red with a tint of white is pink.

In one failed attempt to tidy the studio I came across a bag of pink scraps that I had inherited from my friend Judy Hatt. I hauled out all the scraps onto the table, did a quick assessment..."looks like the beginnings of an irregular log cabin" I mused. (wish I had taken a picture at that point) What to do, but get sewing, and sewing, pressing, trimming and sewing, add some more of my pinks, florals, grapes, oranges, limes, melon (this is no ordinary fruit salad).

What if I add this bold stripe and a centre of melon? (melon dyed fabric from Margie Davidson)

Viola, a disappearing nine-patch. I am quite happy with the results. I have several hours of sewing ahead of me to create this double sized "Fruit Salad".

Now for the month of February it is GREEN. Hummmmm where is this going to take me.


  1. Looks good. I know that strip from a past CQA challenge. I got a meter and put it on my pillow cases. Glad you have joined in.

  2. There's some green in the bold stripe. That is very bright - a great project on a cold winter day.

  3. Love the log cabins. So free and fun!
