I should have mentioned that dark and bright blues will be the color for January this year. I have SO many blues that they don't all fit into a bin together. Hopefully we will be able to start strong. As I was roaming around blogs this morning, many people seemed hesitant about starting a whole new list of projects. If you still have leftover block collections and works in progress, you can also just "assign" a color to each of them and work during that month of getting a specific quilt closer to completion. You could tie it in based on backing or binding color or whatever criteria you decide. The main goal for RSC is to make it work for you! If that means a finishing year instead of a starting year, then that is great too.

Scroll down for today's linky party. I am working on creating a new button for 2023, the first step is always to post a photo to which to link.
Another year of rainbow scraps comes to an end and it is time to reflect. Let's celebrate finished quilts, make notes for projects still in the process and plan for new quilts to come. 2023 will be another chance to work our way through the rainbow and work on using more scraps in so many beautiful projects. First though, take a breath today and enjoy everything that you accomplished in 2022.

The cold has descended, even to Florida. I am so glad that we walked to look at the lights yesterday. We might need to turn on the heat if this continues.
Is anyone up for a grand end of the year reveal next weekend? Then we can start the new year with plans for new blocks

I got the last set of blocks up and on the wall before kids started rushing home for the holidays.
I tried it two ways. Definitely leaning toward rainbow rows on this one. We realized when Anna brought her boyfriend home with her that we didn't actually have enough beds for everyone. Poor Sydney is on an air mattress with a halfway remodeled bathroom lacking a door.
It was a late morning today after two work Christmas parties yesterday. Just three more short days at work before the break.

Pulling out each mostly completed block collection is like an early Christmas present. As much fun as it to add to the collection each month, pulling them all out together is just icing on the cake. As I survey the blocks on the wall, I can see a few rotated corner nine patches. My plan for these is to add 2 inch lattice strips and cornerstones in between each block to create nine patches where the blocks meet. I spy a few rotated corner blocks though, so I will fix those as I rearrange the blocks and cut of the strips. My husband has been out of town for work all week, so having him back is another early Christmas present. The kids will start trickling in during the week, so that is even more holiday fun to look forward to.
