I've been wanting to participate in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) at Kathy's Quilts for a while but couldn't decide on a block I'd like to make in a dozen different colors. But I have a baby quilt to make and baby's mom thought greens would be good. Then I saw that the RSC color for May is green. This month I'm in!
So here are three green (and --sorry to include it--one brown) Buckeye Beauty blocks. (Ignore the tape holding them to my wall if you can.) This is a super easy and fast block: two 4-patches, two half-triangle squares. It has just 11 seams if you cut and sew each piece separately.
They're pretty scrappy, and will continue that way. I'm trying to
use just two fabrics in each block but the blocks may get scrappier if I have all but one square or triangle of a fabric, in which case I'll substitute. I'll also be using other colors. I can't make myself do a baby quilt in just two colors.
These blocks are really a try-out for a quilt. There's another block I'll probably make before deciding which I like better.
I'm linking this post to Scrappy Saturday at So Scrappy. Thanks for hosting, Angela.
