RSC 2021

 This will be the new landing page for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2021.

If you are new to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, the idea is simple.   Each month, I will announce a new color.  You will collect together all of the scraps that you can find in the assigned color and make something.  Many people choose one specific block and make several of those each month.  By the end of the year, you should have enough blocks to put together a rainbow quilt.  Feeling ambitious?   There are usually 3 or 4 weeks each month, you could choose a different block each month.   You could easily have a handful of great quilts ready to go by the end of the year.   


January -- pink

February -- yellow

March -- green (dark or bright, save the lights and limes for later if you have too many)

April -- blue (light and bright, save the dark and dreary for later if you have too many)

May

June

July

August

September

October

November

December - assembly

Tutorials and Challenges for the new year:

Joyful Quilter Table Runner Challenge


My personal plans so far: 


From 2 inch squares and extra nine patches -- sister's choice blocks.  Tutorial for 7.5 inch block. If I make 8 each of 10 colors, that will be a nice sized quilt at the end of the year.   

From 2.5 inch squares - scrappy stars alternating with Shoofly blocks (wonky)


From 1.5 inch strips - Garden Lattice, based on Bonnie Hunter's Garden Party Quilt.  No tutorial for this block as it is not my pattern.  It was published in Quiltmaker Magazine #163 from May/June of 2015,.

Thanks so much, I'll certainly be taking part again. So we are starting with pink I see. No problems, there is plenty of pink fabric lurking about here! And lots of other colours too, of course.

I love reading your posts. I’m really going to try your challenge. I have tons of pink, need to decide on a block. I’m a retired teacher, so I love reading about your handling of these crazy times in the classroom or not. I’m in CT where my daughter is a high school band director/music supervisor.

I should love to add your new button to my blog but I don’t know how to do it. Any tips?

Silly Goose said...

Hi Linda, I've just added mine to my blog - it's easy. On your blog's main page, you click on Design (top right of computer screen).

Then you click on Layout (menu on left side of computer screen)

Then you click on Add A Gadget.

You save the picture you want, in this case the button, on a place that you can find it (desktop or somewhere obvious)

In the Add A Gadget menu, you click on image.

Then you pick 'from your computer' and upload the image from the place you saved it.

Then to link to the original blog in the same window you paste the link from the webpage in the space that says 'link'.

Click save and it should now show. You may like to rearrange the gadgets into a different order, but the image should be showing now.

Hope this helps,

Suzie

I'm so excited to do your challenge for 2021! I've never done one before so it will be fun! Thank you!

Kate said...

I'm looking forward to playing along next year on a limited basis. Thanks for hosting for another year.

Deb A said...

I'm in again .... we won't discuss the collections of RSC blocks hanging out in the drawers waiting to be sewn together! Pink......

Sharon said...

This sounds like fun!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I have only taken part the last two years and have had fun doing so and had an extra quilt finished at the end of the year! thanks

Sharon said...

This sounds like SEW much fun! I may try to particpate this year, although it is challenging to find time when school is in session. I think that I still have some pink scraps in my pink fabric basket. . .

Liz said...

Is this on Instagram somewhere too. I'm not a blogger.

Maggie said...

I have had the pleasure to follow Karen's journey with this challenge over the past two years. How do one join the RSC2021?

sunny said...

I have returned to Blogland after a lengthy hiatus, and I plan to play along this year. My scraps are taking over!! thanks.

Janis said...

Last year I joined in the RSC a few times but got started late and didn't have a plan. This year I've chosen a pattern to use and will try to do a few blocks every month with you. Thanks for hosting!

claudia said...

After being absent for a few years, I am coming back to join you all. Looking forward to all the great blocks and using my scraps! I'm glad we are starting with pink. I have a ton, I'm thinking January won't be long enough to use them all up!

I am new to the challenge this year. I have quilty friends who have been doing it for years and have been very encouraging. I have finally decided to join the party. I'm excited and looking forward to using my supply of scraps. Pink is a favorite coloir, so an excellent place to start!

Sanlyn said...

I have heard about the RSC and decided to give it a go this year. I do not have a blog site as of yet and it will be an accessible “hikes” blog called “The Lady with the Walker in the Woods”. I’m not confident that my quilting skills warrant a blog. Can I still post my completed blocks here?

Polly said...

I’m new to blogging but not to quilting. Can I join Your BOM?

Kirsten said...

Excited to join in. I've been away from blogging for too long, and have spent more time accumulating than using fabric, so 2021 is a time for creativity for me.

Helenchaffin said...

I would luv to do this again but no longer have a blog so how would that work as far as posting?

Helenchaffin said...

It's me again lol not sure you can reply back if I dont have a blog, my email is h.chaffin0256@gmail.com

Elaine Nemeth said...

This will be my 3rd rsc quilt . Thank you for all you do.

Liz said...

So when are you posting February color?

Sanlyn said...

What will be the color for March? I'm not seeing it on the blog.
