Rainbow Scrap Challenge

Today I've managed to spend a bit of time sewing, despite a nasty cough that won't go away following my chest infection.

I've made some more blue heart blocks and half square triangle variation blocks, like those I made last week.

I've also made four 54-40 or Fight blocks. I've decided to stick with blacks and neutrals for the four patch blocks, as this will tie all the scrappy multi-coloured blocks together. It doesn't work brilliantly with the blue, but I'm sure will work well with other colours.

Of course, the blue blocks won't be bunched together like this in the finished quilt, but it does give an idea of what it will look like, the secondary patterns that appear when you put the blocks together.

This is lovely, Amanda. I'm sorry you've still got the nagging left over cough. I hope it goes away very quickly.

Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well, this is the time of year for colds and flu. Great 54-40 blocks. It is such a fun star block.

Like the look of those blocks. Hope the cough clears up soon. Take care xx

I love the plan you have for the 54-40 blocks. Black/Neutral -- brilliant idea to tie together the colors!!!
