Neutral for the RSC

A long time ago when I first found the Rainbow ScrapChallenge and the colour of the month was neutrals, I felt stumped, how could I do neutral, how would this fit into my Rainbow quilt?  So I made nine neutral blocks with a touch of the rainbow in each block, and all this time they sat on the shelf, I wasn’t sure what to make with these nine little (7 ½ inch) blocks.
 

Then this month when Angela announced that we were doing neutral, I pulled them out and the creative juices started to flow.  I have so many neutral scraps, so for this month I’ll probably just keep making low-volume Mile a Minute squares, and I just might end up with enough for a whole quilt.  Wouldn’t that be great?  I think I might continue to add the occasional colour, perhaps pastels to some of the blocks.

So here are the blocks I finished last night.
 


If you are interested in the Mile a Minute technique I have a tutorial which starts here, and goes on for six weeks (six blog posts), caution, it's addictive.

  1. That punch of colour in each neutral block is so much fun. Should be a stunning quilt.
