Still catching up for those lost RSC weeks. Yes. I'm making more colorful RSC Bonnie Hunter house blocks. I'm addicted. May turn them into another quilt, some pot holders, mug rugs. Don't know. I just like to make these blocks. Thought I'd try out the RSC 2018 Sampler Blocks. Aren't they cute. And fun, too.
I decided to make another "Growing Up Odd" block. That makes, two blocks. I chose a light pink fabric for sashing. These blocks are fun to make. Another super scrappy pot holder made it into the picture.
To see what other made with their colorful fabrics, go here Saturday morning.

Still catching up this month with colorful blocks in five colors. I used pages torn from a phone book for the foundation of these blocks. Three super scrappy pot holders made it into the picture. Can never have enough of these to give away.
To see what others made with their rainbow colors, go here.
Pictured is a doll quilt, a couple pillow cases and a tote bag for some great grand kids. Fun stuff!
Goodness knows I don't need to start another project, but here goes the start of a "Growing Up Odd" quilt block. Here is a link to a free tutorial for the block and quilt.
Happy Mother's Day!

I've some Rainbow Scrap Challenge catching up to do in the coming months. Because 16-patch blocks are so much fun to sew and versatile, I decided to make more this RSC year. My plan is to make five in each month's RSC year. Apparently I forgot to count this year. Two light blue blocks and six purple blocks. Don't know what is going on here.
I love 36-patch blocks, too. I'll try at least one each RSC month.
To see what others made with their scraps, go here Saturday morning.
I'm still sewing up scraps and orphan blocks to make doll quilts to give away. Love sewing doll quilts.

2018 RSC January Light Blue, RSC 16-Patch Quilt Finish, Captain America Panel Quilts, Charity Baby Quilt, Scrappy Pot Holders,
My stack of colorful RSC 16-patch blocks made last year and the year before are now a colorful RSC quilt. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 63" x 85".
I bought a couple Captain America Panels for two Great-grandsons. An addition red border border made them a little larger. They were quilted with a large free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer they finished about 40" x 45". They were Christmas gifts.
I sashed nine colorful blocks from my UFO box to make a donation baby quilt that I'll turn in next week during our January guild meeting. It finished at 37.5" x 37.5".
A plastic tub of very small scraps is my source of super scrappy pot holders. I make them throughout the year and gift them mainly at Christmas. All I make last year were given away. Pictured are my first six of 2018. Only one scrappy blue potholder. A very slow RSC start. Looks like a busy scrappy light blue week in my future.

2017 RSC October Pink Week 1, Pink Blocks, A 36-Patch RSC Quilt Finish, A Baby Quilt, and Two Doll Quilts
This month I started sewing together some of the colorful blocks I've made this Rainbow Scrap Challenge year. I started with my stack of 36-patch blocks made with 2" squares. The blocks are sashed them 2" Kona white strips and colorful cornerstones. A 1.5" yellow inner border, a 5" outer border and a green and white strip binding pulled everything together. It's quilted with a free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 63" x 82". It shrank about 4" during the washing and drying process.
I was happy to see that PINK is our RSC color this month. Pictured is a pink crayon block, two 36-patch blocks, three 16-patch blocks and seven string blocks. A pink themed pot holder made it into the picture.
To see what others made with their pink scraps, go here Saturday morning.
The colorful squares in this baby quilt were supposed to be in a fabric book. I didn't want to make a book, but I did want to make a baby quilt.
And this is the back. It finished at 39" square. I donated it during our guild meeting in September.
I love making doll quilt. These will be donated in December.

This weekend was our Quilt Guild's Annual Quilt Show. I entered three RSC finished quilts. Two of my quilts won ribbons. The quilting judge gave my Wonky Stars a ribbon for Best Use of Color. Quilt show viewers gave it an Honorable Mention. Double Yah!
Love this colorful wonky star quilt.
Quilt show viewers gave my Happy Scrappy "Occupied" House Quilt a Third Place Ribbon. Yah!
I made sure every house was occupied. My youngest son wants this quilt.
My colorful Boxy Stars didn't win a ribbon, but got a lot of attention from viewers.
Sixteen guild members made Fidget Quilts for this year's challenge. I entered the little quilt pictured above.
It was a good quilt show. Lots of beautiful quilts. Though it was a beautiful day, attendance was down a little from last year. Regretfully, I didn't take more pictures. I was helping at the tables and thought I'd have time to take some pictures before the show was dismantled. Sorry to say, that didn't happen.
