cheerful red

I hope to follow a plan for working the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy this year.

1. grab color wire basket and sort

 I keep my fabric chunks in wire baskets by color. Some baskets are in tidy shape, others, not so much. Red is in good shape, and still looks tidy.

3. make ongoing rsc blocks

These bits and pieces were just sitting on top of my table waiting to be put away. When I saw that we were using red for May and the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy, I just sewed them together rather than putting them in drawers. But, then, from the looks of my table, Angela could have chosen any color, and I would have had something to make on the quick.

1 1/2 inch  strips and squares

2. decide ufo by color -prioritize as #1

red - Aunt Eliza star

This is a ufo from 2014 and our Christmas trip to Florida. I have the blocks made. I think I need an alternative block. I would like something chainy, but, I am not sure I want to go to the trouble. ( mojo is missing). I have all month.
