ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC15 - Week 12 . . . . . . {National Quilting Day}

Welcome to Week 12 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!!  I am hoping for more sewing time this week.  As you know, I was feeling under the weather last week.  Thank you to all who posted comments wishing me well.  It worked!!!  Those wishes really lifted my spirits, making me feel better.  :o))

Here's my RSC sewing report for YELLOW, Week 3:

On Sunday afternoon I drew the short straw and had to take DS1 back to college (while my husband did the pharmacy and grocery run.)  This is all I had time for upon my return:

One yellow crumb center for a Maverick Star block.

Monday, before Quilt Guild, I sewed star points for 2 Maverick Star blocks:

Tuesday...  HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!!

Found this adorable quilt on someone's blog. It had been nipped from elsewhere on the internet with no credit given. I think that I need to make this for my house!!!

See???  It looks JUST like me!!!

Oops!  Back to Tuesday... while taking a break from the T-shirt Quilt that I was working on, I trimmed up the star points on the 2 Maverick Star blocks that I made on Monday:

Wednesday, after work, I volunteered at DS2's school for a couple of hours.  Afterwards, I hurried home to prepare for a business meeting.  No time for RSC sewing... my YELLOW scraps will have to wait!  (I did get a bit of work done on Kennedy's T-shirt Quilt.)

Thursday, I go called in to work.  (So I did manage to get some hand stitching done on my Crumb Quilt binding!)  No RSC sewing on this day.  After work, I took dinner to DS2 who was at a Jazz Workshop in the same town.  Of course, I just HAD to stay for the concert!!!  :o))

Only ONE side and TWO corners separate me from a completed quilt!!!

Friday was another busy day.  The only thing that changed was that I was busy SEWING and turning the block parts made earlier in the week into these TWO Maverick Star blocks:

On Saturday morning I finished up this post and linked up with the RSC Quilters.  Find me at link number 11 this week.  After a quick shower, I raced off to my Quilt Bee meeting.  (Afterwards, I went on a secret mission.  Look for more on that in a few days.)

RSC 15

Until next time...
Go SEW!!!  It's National Quilting Day!!!
