The colour of the month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is aqua/teal/any colour between blue and green on the colour wheel. I haven't played with these scraps much this month, but I did corral all the smallest scraps to start a Mad City Mama block. This is a pattern from Bonnie Hunter's book Adventures With Leaders and Enders. Each block has a centre block (bottom left), 4 strip blocks and 4 square blocks. I thought I had cut millions of squares, but apparently I only cut about 40, so I still have 100+ more to cut! This is what I achieved so far this month, and now I am completely distracted with Amanda Jean Nyberg's new book called "No Scrap Left Behind".
I'm telling you, this book is fabulous if you like to collect little bits and pieces of scraps that other "normal" quilters toss in the garbage. I have no affiliation to Amanda or her publisher, so I am just sharing my own opinion as a fan. It's so reassuring to know that there are other crazy people like me out there in the world. Amanda is my twin scrap sister! I am reading every word on every page. This book is so yummy, it even smells good! Most people who read everything on computers, tablets, and phones probably don't remember how good a new book smells... or maybe this is just another quirky thing about me?!?
