There’s something about the October Blocks
As I was making this month’s blocks and putting together the directions, I started thinking about using it for the rainbow scraps challenge next year, in a color way similar to the one we’re using, except the gold/orange would be replaced by the color of the month and combined with neutrals. I might make my blocks a little smaller, 5 by 10 inches each, so I could use up smaller scraps.
Then I thought about LAST year’s October block and how I am using it for this year’s rainbow scraps challenge. This time, I made them bigger, 10 by 15 inches each. I made the last two month’s blocks (orange and brown) last night. My plan is to make one block for each of the colors in the Rainbow Scraps Challenge and to add 4 more for a total of sixteen big blocks.
Maybe it’s just a matter of timing and around this time of year, I’m thinking and planning for new projects in the new year or maybe there’s just something special about the October blocks?
