In 2016, I participated in So Scrappy’s Rainbow Scrap challenge. If you are not familiar with the challenge there is a button on the right hand column to link to Angela’s blog where you can find more information. She is hosting the challenge again this year – you can still join all of the scrappy fun.
Here is my finished 59″ x 69″ quilt top. YAHOO !
How are your projects coming along?Micki
October marks the last month and Angela at So Scrappy has chosen yellow/orange. My fabrics range from yellow to gold which coincidentally matches many of the leaves that have fallen in my yard. Yes, it is official fall. It is a lovely time of the year but makes me think of what is coming next…UGH.
The challenge went from January to October with a new color each month. That makes it ten months times 10 blocks per month. Wowzy…100 blocks. Seems like a lot but these blocks will only finish at 5″ so I will need all of them to make a small quilt. I am not sure if I will add any other blocks to the design layout but I have been pondering a couple of options. I will be spending the rest of the year working on getting all of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016 blocks together into a quilt.
Life is good ! Here are my pups capturing the sun coming in the front door.
I spent many hours outside getting the garden ready for winter. Hope everyone had a good weekend.Micki
For September, Angela at So Scrappy has chosen ‘rosy red’. If you are following along with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge you probably already know that Angela only has one more month/color to reveal before we start putting together the quilt top. Geez…might be time to figure out the layout.

Here are my August Rainbow Scrap challenge blocks. Angela of SoScrappy color challenge this month was to use a grey-purple color. I love purple and have a nice stash of fabrics but it was a challenge to find five grey-purple fabrics that would work. But I did and I was able to finish the blocks before the end of August – YAHOO !.
In keeping with August’s color here is a new bloom on my Endless Summer hydrangae plant.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.Micki
Here we are again with photos of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. This month, SoScrappy chose ‘hot pink’ although mine blocks are more ‘just pink’ than ‘hot pink’. I decided to show off all of the month’s blocks so far. Looking good !
If you are interested in seeing what ever one else is doing check out the RSC16 button on the right side of the blog.
My garden is really blooming now. The coneflowers are plentiful – whether planted or volunteer plants they are great to look at and in the fall the birds love them to peck at them.
Here is a photo of a couple of my day lilies. I have them ranging in color from the softest pink to dark maroon, lemon yellow thru to bright orange yellow along with some peachy ones. The lemon yellow ones are plants I got from my mom. They are ‘old fashion’ ones that actually have a pleasant fragrance.
How is your garden doing? Hope you are having a great weekend.Micki
Have you been following along with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge? Angela at So Scrappy blog has chosen teal for June’s color. If interested in knowing more, I have a button in the right hand column that will take you to her blog. You can check out her linky parties and see what everyone is making.
I now have 60 blocks done and eventually I will need to figure out how I want to lay them out.
All of the pinks, rose, and shades of purple flowers in the backyard have been replaced with white and yellow. Many of my day lilies are showing buds so it won’t be long until I have various colors of blooms.
Have a great day !Micki
