Rainbow Scrap Challenge April

Still managing to keep up! All my aqua blocks are finished!

Theses are sew fun! They are Cindi Edgerton’s Twirling Hexagons at A Very Special Collection.

Here are March’s green:

And February’s Yellow:

And January’s Red:

Put it all together and you have almost a rainbow! Not sure how I will arrange them yet, we have a few colors to go.

And I certainly had plenty other projects to work on, but I have followed these rainbow scrap project for years and just had to try it! It has been sew inspiring to see all the combinations and interpretations of the theme Angela organized at Soscrappy.

Scrap Quilts

This first time Rainbow Scrap Challenge participant is having fun! We were red in January, yellow in February, an Green in March. Taking some time in January to plan this quilt out has made adding to colors each month easy and exciting. All of my greens are finished. With less than a week to go.



Here they are with a couple more to go!


And then I have a few other scrap quilts going. A string star begun with Augusta Cole over four years ago:

And my Log Cabin Play Day design that has been on ongoing leader ender project:

And lastly a patriotic scrap quilt called Road to the White House:

Maybe 2019 will be the year they move to the finished quilts list!

Scrap Happy Saturday

The Quilt show is in Hampton this weekend and always a great source of inspiration. Although I only have one block done I am enjoying the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2019 HERE. Here is one of the yellow blocks to join the red ones from January. Time to get busy on green for March.

First Quilt of the Year finished

The Fabrics for Evening Harvest were purchased in Paducah at the American Quilting Society Show from Cherrywood Fabrics in…2005, I think. evening harvest 4

This began my long love for the look and feel of these fabrics.

I finally got it pieced the end of the 2013 and began planning the quilting.  Well my goodness deciding what to quilt took forever.  I even started once and pulled it off the frame to rip it all out.  So 2019 was the year to finish it.  I put it on the frame just after the first of the year, and then it was chosen (as #3 on my random list of unfinished projects for the American Patchwork and Quilting UFO 2019 Challenge), so there was no turning back.  Stitched in Layers with my Gammill Statler Stitcher.

Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2019

Angela at  Scrap Happy is heading up another challenge this year to use up scraps in Rainbow style.  I thought it was finally time to join in and use it to do two things…use up my polka dots, and make a quilt from my “to make soon” list.  It is a paper pieced pattern called Whirling Hexagons by Cindi Edgerton at A Very Special Collection.  The color for January is RED.  Can’t wait to start another color…rainbow scrap challenge 2019
