Scrap Happy Saturday - RSC15 - Week 4

Welcome to Week 4 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!

This past week got off to a slow start.  I was too focused on knitting to quilt.  So...

Sunday, I did NOTHING quilty ALL DAY!!!  :o((

Monday, I managed to sew a little bit and made... FIVE Tiny Nines.

Here they are on the 2nd pass through the machine.

This little guy didn't turn out so well.  I decided that it would benefit from a date with the seam ripper.  I'm sure you will agree.



These four turned out fine:


But...

While some would disagree, this little guy was STILL a bit uncooperative!  :o((

Tuesday, after work, I went to WORK!!  (My other job.)  When I got home, I was TOO TIRED to do any sewing, but I took a look at what MAY turn out to be my 2015 DOQ Paint Chip Challenge quilt.  The GOOD news is that it is actually TWO challenge quilts in one!  (It started its time on the "design floor" as my Art Bee Strip Insertion quilt.  :o))

I know you wanna see it, but...SORRY!  Can't share a photo at this time.

Hint: Look for photos on Friday.

Wednesday, after work I added to last week's "Crumb Starters":




And...  picked out some fabrics from the GIMQ leftover pile to make a couple more Tiny Nines:


Needleb's scraps are on the top and mine are at the bottom of the photo.

Thursday...  didn't yield any sewing time.  :o((

Friday...  was a busy day, but I managed to get up to my studio before dinner.  Here's what I did:

This photo shows the additions that I made to my blue crumbs... before trimming.

 Also, did you see my Design Floor Friday post?  That is what I was eluding to when I mentioned the Paint Chip Challenge in Tuesday's quilty doings.

Saturday, I linked to Angela's weekly post HERE.  Unfortunately, I didn't link to THIS WEEK'S post!!!  That's OK because I think I may have figured out her linking process (and hope to do better next week.)  I'm just thrilled to be part of the RSC15 action, slowly whittling away at my BLUE scraps.  I have to tell you though, I feel like I'm running out of steam.  The BLUE scrap block production has significantly decreased this week.  I'll try to be more productive during this upcoming (and LAST) week of BLUES.

Until next time...
Happy Quilting!!!

  2. Lovely little blocks. I too often have mini blocks that don't want to cooperate.
