BOMs Away – Jack’s Chain Multicolor


This is a new one for me! Every year, the Rainbow Scrap Challenge does the “regular” colors. Usually I add in a couple stripes or dots that don’t fit into one color category during the black or brown month, since black/brown just isn’t rainbow to me. But this year, the multicolors get their own official month! Woohoo!

I zoomed through my Jack’s Chain blocks – backing from Lori’s Forty and Quilts for Pulse. And that one on the far left is one of the first fabrics I ever bought, but I never use because it’s too multi-colored. I need to give it a rainbow quilt to live in!

Then, since I had the scrap boxes out, I made a couple blocks for my Main Street Rainbow. I pieced together all the blocks I could earlier this year, but came to a standstill when I ran out of both the grey and colored blocks. Apparently my original plan was much smaller… I need another twelve or so colored blocks to finish it, and I need to calculate yardage for my sister to pick up some more of the grey. Luckily she has a nearby shop that carries every shade of Dimples, because I don’t even remotely remember what colors I was using. {Whhhhhhhhhy do I not write these things down?}

So that was a satisfying BOM day for me! How about everyone else? You can link up here or at What a Hoot!

Way to use those MULTICOLORED scraps for the RSC!!!


I love your Nine Patch Blocks! So cute! I still have some of my original fabric….somewhere… 🙂 I also love the multi-colored month as well, though admittedly I’m eagerly waiting for the “yellow” month! 🙂


The universe is aligning for you – scraps and multi-colored prints! Be sure to share the finishes

Your multicolors look great. I’m still catching up on the reds … and not very fast. I like the simplicity of your blocks. They are going to go into a great rainbow quilt(s).


Very fun blocks. Love all those bright colors.


Those are some wild and crazy colors! Great idea to add the multicolors. I’m not doing a Rainbow quilt this year, but I’m enjoying watching others’ come together.


Love your blocks – and multi-color month! To me, it’s second only to the yellow month! Your blocks look so happy!

You really finished up a lot of great looking blocks. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!


Jack’s Chain is on my bucket list, too, but I haven’t started it yet. Great idea to make the nine patches for the rainbow challenge!

The little blocks with the Dimples are so cute! Multicolors. . . those fabrics you can never, ever figure out which color bin to put away in. I really need to get a bin just for them!
