2016 Rainbow Scrap Challenge

April 25, 2017 in QUILTING

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 !

RSC October 2016 blocks

October 16, 2016 in QUILTING

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.

RSC September 2016 blocks

September 17, 2016 in QUILTING

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.

RSC August 2016 Blocks

August 28, 2016 in GARDENING, QUILTING

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 !.

RSC July 2016 blocks

July 17, 2016 in GARDENING, QUILTING

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 !

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.

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.
