Rainbow Scrap Challenges - Bits and Pieces

I haven't been keeping up with the RSC the past few months, illnesses of family members and such, but I have been using some of my RSC blocks from last year.  If you look, the top left block is one of my Kaleidoscope blocks, and the bottom middle is some of my 9 patches.  I needed some quilts quickly, so I used them along with my OKCMQG blocks also from last year.  

I needed a quilt for a niece, and again, I turned to the RSC and framed and sashed some of the 16 patches for a relatively quick quilt. 

And another quick quilt needed and again to the RSC.  This one was from the 2 1/2 inch strips that I had left from each color intending to do the Jelly Roll Race type quilt.  This one was done that way, but then I decided to make it into sort of a rail fence.   I needed 9 quilts in a short time, so I improvised.  I used these, also a coin style quilt that I had made the top as a spare man type quilt, then decided to use it for a tablecloth, so finished it and used it under plastic as a tablecloth for a few months.  Now, it has a label and is for a young boy.  I also used one of my Celtic Solstice quilts that weren't very successful, but hopefully the young lady that it's going to will like it.  She doesn't know that it was supposed to look differently than it turned out.  The coin and CS are here.   
Thankfully, I had the RSC to draw from and was able to complete the quilts I needed in the time frame that I was aiming for.

I love scrappy quilts and I love, love, LOVE these quilts.
Most of my RSC blocks are 8.5" squares. Though I have tentative plans for them, those plans can change if I need to sash several of the blocks to make a quick colorful quilt or two.
I hope your family members are well soon, dear.

Your rainbow blocks became very pretty quilts. It is always nice to have blocks made when you need a quick quilt.

Your quilts are beautiful. I just love the scrappy look of them. Isn't it wonderful working on the rainbow scrap challenge. You always have a few blocks kicking around waiting to be put into a quilt.

Such wonderful quilts! There is nothing better than a scrappy quilt. Yours look so cozy and inviting with all that color.

My word, you've certainly been busy, and how wonderful that you were able to utilise blocks and tops that you already had. They look colourful and cozy and will be loved I'm sure. I had intended to keep up with the RSC this year, but haven't managed to do any of the blocks this month yet, though I kept up in January and February.
