Most people seem to choose a focus project (or two or three) to keep them busy throughout the year. By completing one or more blocks in each color, they have a nice collection for a rainbow colored quilt at the end of the year. Some people have even more scraps to use up and make entire quilts in the color of the month. Again, the choice is up to you. I've started a board on Pinterest to collect some ideas to share.
Each Saturday a Scraphappy link up will be posted so that you can see what everyone else is up to and collect some new scrap busting ideas. No need to sign up, no reason to feel bad if life gets in the way and you miss a month along the way. No quilt guilt allowed. Just pop in on the weekend and check out everyone's progress, go visit and offer some encouragement.
This year as an extra special treat, we have a sponsor for the first time ever! Vicki Welsh who blogs over at Field Trips in Fiber has sent me a breathtaking selection of her very own hand dyed fabrics. Each month I will be giving away a fabric collection to one randomly selected rainbow scrapper. The announcement will be just before the end of each month with the giveaway ending a week later. If you aren't lucky enough to win, don't feel too bad, Vicki has lots of beautiful fabric for sale for the rest of us. Check out her etsy shop to be inspired by all the colors of the rainbow. Her buttons are posted in my sidebar and they will take you directly there.
Feel free to grab my button and post it on your blog. You should be able to just copy the HTML code in the box under the picture and paste it into a new gadget on your blog.
January will be blue this year. Try to pick out the brights and the darks to use this month. Save the teals and baby shades for later in the year. Because blue is such a big color for most people, it will be divided into subgroups.
