Welcome to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge halfway point for the year. July is a great time to take a breath and think about what you'd like to get done before the end of the year. It is a great catch up month too, for those who have missed a color or two along the way. The new color this month is hot pink and if you are feeling particularly adventurous, you can add just a dash of lime green.Vicki Welsh to give away to one lucky Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilter. Vicki and I worked together to plan the colors for this year and she was kind enough to send extra fabric to share with you. She has a new web site and fabric shop set up now. Just leave me a comment of this post with the name of the next project you plan to finish if you would like to enter into the random drawing.

I chose a nice simple block for this month. Hopefully that will give everyone a chance to get caught up if they need to, and in the quilt, it will give the eye a little bit of a rest. This block has traditionally been called Indian Hatchet. It is a simple square with two flip and sew corners. A lot like a snowball block, but with two corners instead of four.
In the finished quilt, these blocks will be alternated to form a simple zig zag line.
If you are making the twin sized quilt you will need 24 blocks. For the couch sized quilt, 18 will do it.
