Rainbow Scrap Challenge--Brown

Saturday, November 2, 2013
This month I made brown blocks--


Some people don't like brown.  Not me--I LOVE brown!!  I think brown goes with just about anything.  There are 40 of these blocks, enough for two quilts.  The vintage quilt in the magazine (McCalls Vintage Quilts--Spring 2004) has what's described as a "small floral print" sashing between the blocks and as a border.  I'll look in the stash again, but I don't think I have anything that will work.  I'm looking forward to Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014--but until then I need to finish some quilts.  The 36 patch from 2012 is on the long arm--just waiting for me to have time to quilt it.  Please see everyone's blocks at soscrappy.

But now I have to head to the field, my husband has a combine warmed up and ready for me to go.

I said it last week and will say it again. I LOVE this block. I think it looks great without sashing and like the secondary patterns the blocks make.

What a bout a sashing of neutral background fabric with scraps as cornerstones? Wonderful blocks!

I am just starting to use brown more and I think it adds just the right touch to most any quilt. Your blocks are looking great.
