Last year or the year before I pulled out my smaller scraps, ironed and organized them by color. Then hung them on a hanger based on color. This year I've decided to take the assigned color and make it into a piece of fabric that could be cut into a 12 inch square.

|Blue with Purple Accent 12.5"|
I like the way the fabric pieces join and create jagged corners. And the way some of the strips sort of line up after a break. Next month I'll work more on lining things up, and will be more mindful of having larger seams at the ends.
I'm already doing several projects where I measure an follow patterns. I'm glad though to finally commit to making a scrappy block each month with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!
