Scrappy Saturday - Brown Edition



I'll get to brown, but first let me finish up BLUE. I showed the first two Fancy Forest blocks, and then I made one more -- a firefly.  And then I found a pattern on the Robert Kaufman site that uses 3" strips, so I raided my box of 3" scraps and made a bunch of Prismatic Echoes blocks.  They were a very good antidote to the concentration needed for the Forest blocks!


But now it's February and the color is BROWN at the rainbow scrap challenge. I whipped up 3 new blocks for the Forest:

I'm not super fond of the bunny...  my forest may end up with only one of them.  Love the fox, though, and the thistles might be my favorites!

Love that pattern ... and the blocks you've made so far.

Oh, I'm looking forward to seeing Forest Friends in the rainbow spectrum! What a great idea! And yes...that rabbit is rather cheeky, isn't he?

Sally T said...

I like your majestic mountain thistles too. And I assume the bunny took a bite or two of the thistles to earn your discontent?

the bunny just needs a little bit of a smile instead of that "what's going on" look.

how neat to do the forest quilt with RSC- something different. can't wait to see. the bunny is a bit odd, you're right. maybe do something different with his mouth?

What a fun bunch of blocks! The bunny does look a little undecided about things...

Squealing over the thistle block! It's so cute! Maybe if the bunny had a rectangular mouth instead of the triangle he might look a little happier.

Forest Friends is shaping up to be an interesting quilt. The bunny will look great once he has some whiskers.

Too cute! I have the Fancy Fox pattern but haven't cut out any of the foxes. Yet another quilt on my want-to-do-list. ;-)

I think I love the bunny best of all. Even if there is only one, he will be special.

The fox and bunnie both have personality, it seems. Those Prismatic Echoes are fascinating, can be done in a number of ways. Keep up the good work!
