RSC Dark October Colours

Friday evening was spent in sewing black, grey and brown (I prefer chocolate) blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I have a little book where I keep track of quilts in progress to see what I needed to finish up some of my rainbow projects.
For my Scrappy Trip Along I needed two more chocolate blocks, so took a look through my precut 2 ½ inch strips from previous evenings of scrap management and made a couple of blocks.  Now I just need to make three more yellow and six turquoise and the Scrappy Trip Along blocks with be finished and make a very large quilt.

My Rainbow of Hearts quilt needed two more black and grey blocks, so I found some lovely little bits of these colours in my scraps.  Just two more royal blue blocks needed to finish this project and decide on a layout for this quilt.

As a somewhat mindless way to just sew and finish the evening I worked on a couple of grey slabs, my slabs are the beginning of another Rainbow quilt project.

Rainbow projects still in progress to be continued into next year:
Wonky Churn Dash – Well begun
Rainbow Mile a Minute – I’m sewing the top together
Paint Box – Need 11 more blocks in various colours
Black and White Crazy Patch (with a dash of colour) – just a couple more blocks to go

Could that really be all?  Maybe I’m closer than I think!

Check out soscrappy’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge to be inspired by other Rainbow quilt ideas.
