ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC15 - Week 13

Welcome to Week 13 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  The past couple of weeks have been spent in a fog.  I'm not sure if allergy season is kicking in or if I am suffering from waking up early too many days in a row...  All I know is that I'm TIRED and I want some SEWING TIME!!!

Week 13 went something like this:


This morning I woke up early to get DS2 off to a birthday party.  Yes.  It required waking up early!  My MIL was visiting (to get her taxes done) and instead of RSC sewing, I opted for working on Kennedy's Quilt in the afternoon.  The two outer columns on each side are sewn together now.


This morning was another early morning.  DS2 had to get to school for Wind Ensemble practice. After work (and a late afternoon business meeting), I chose to make additional progress on K's Quilt. The central column is sewn.  It took some doing, but it's done.  Whew!!


I was up early AGAIN!  DS2 needed to be AT school at 7:30 AM to catch the bus to MPAs... that's Music Performance Assessments for you non-musical types.  His band earned straight SUPERIORS!!!  Hooray for CRHS!!!

I worked late, did a grocery run, and met DH for dinner.  No time for RSC sewing then, but I was able to stitch down another 18" of binding on my Crumb Quilt.  It was in the car so I made use of my time while waiting for the buses to return.  (Can you see my halo from there?  I was feeling virtuous.)

In a fit of desperation, I went up to the sewing room upon returning home.  I should have gone straight to bed, but I just NEEDED a little time with my YELLOW scraps!!

What did you make, Joyful???

Well, since it was late, I needed something FAST.  I made ONE String block (and promptly went to bed!!!):


I actually had time to go sew (but chose not to!)  I was feeling lazy and sat surfing the internet (however, I did manage to finish the notes from Saturday's quilt bee meeting.)


Actually, WENT to Quilt Bee this week.  That was followed by lunch and a meeting with a quilting/knitting friend.  I finished off the notes from Saturday's meeting and worked on 2 of my 4 commission quilts.  Not enough time in the day to do RSC sewing, too!


I went to Knit Group and lunch then came home to finish my Design Floor Friday post.  I wanted to make excuses and play on the computer or get some work done on Kennedy's Quilt, however, I decided that I really NEEDED to make a few more YELLOW blocks!!  SEW... I headed up to the studio and... finished ONE Slab block:

This block was made from YELLOWS found in Thursday's haul mentioned in THIS post.

And prepped one Tiny Nine block to sew another day:

Prepped Tiny Nine block... oops!  I'll need to trim those squares from Diane before I can sew!


This morning, right after breakfast, I raced out the door to meet with my friend NeedleB with no time finish this post.  We were working at her house today.   I finished the binding on my Crumb Quilt today.  It's DONE!!!

Would YOU like to see???

Of COURSE you would!!!

Here's the obligatory rolled quilt photo:

Check out the quilt's finishing post for further details.

Saturday night, after the girls (I was at work) were in bed, I finally had time to finish this post and join the LINK PARTY over on the SoScrappy blog.  Head over to Angela's blog to see what YELLOW goodness all the RSC Quilters are working on!

In a few more days we'll be saying goodbye to YELLOW and hello to ???.  Only time will tell, but judging by Angela's page layout, I'm guessing that it's the color of my current nail polish.  We'll see!!  :o))

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. Your crumb blocks made such a lovely quilt. It makes one feel happy just looking at it.
