January rainbow round up

 For Joy's Table Scraps challenge:  I made two pink potholders. 


I also made some framed four-patch blocks. (5.5" unfinished)


Last year I made half-square triangles in each of the 10 monthly RSC colors.  Because I used 5" squares to make the HSTs it was convenient to make two identical HSTs-- 4.5" unfinished.  One pair of squares for each day of the month meant an average of 60 HSTs.    Here is what happened to 270 of the 600.  

The blocks are 12" and the quilt is 60 x 72. 

I used up a few colorful prints for the back.  I used the walking foot to quilt straight lines in a hanging diamonds pattern. 


RSC February is yellow -- I love yellow and I'll enjoy working with it.

Wait--600 HSTs? And your gorgeous quilt only used 270 of them? Wow! I can't wait to see what you do with the rest of them!

What a great use of half square triangles. Doing them in groups really makes the quilt work. I'm trying to think small for this year's RSC.

That HST quilt is BEAUTIFUL!!! The potential for the Framed 4-Patches is limitless but sure to be pretty too. Look out, Yellow, here we come!
