ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC15 - Week 16

Welcome to Week 16 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!!  Each week I share with you the progress I've made on my sewing for the RSC and we join the Link Party to see what all the other RSC Quilters have been up to during the week.

This week has been as hectic (and less productive) as some of my more recent weeks.  Since you're here, I suppose you'd like to have a look.  Week 16 went something like this:

Sunday...  Not only did I manage to finish the fusing on T3, I also made TWO Slab Blocks:

Monday...  I worked on T3.  The RSC will have to wait!

Tuesday...  Evening work shift and progress on T3.  Again, no RSC sewing, but I found something PURPLE from my garden (planted in my neighbor's yard):

These Bearded Iris (a shorter variety, as opposed to Tall Bearded) came from my aunt's old house in North Georgia. Mine aren't blooming yet, but the ones that I planted in the neighbor's yard get the morning sun and just bloomed today. Hooray!!

Wednesday...  Small bits of PURPLE were added to T3 and a string of Tiny Nines were sewn.  The rows are now waiting to be pressed and stitched into small quilt blocks:

Thursday... I attended Quilt Bee, worked a late shift, and selected additional strips of PURPLE for the borders on my T3 quilt.

Friday...  Today's PURPLE scrap sewing yielded the following:

A trash can filled with T-shirt parts and PURPLE trimmings.  (Trimmings, scraps that I actually DO NOT save!)

And a completed quilt top!!  Read more about the T3 saga HERE.

Saturday...  My friend Needleb came over to sew.  I needed someone to keep me on task!  :o))  Before she arrived, I put the finishing touches on this post and joined Angela's LINK PARTY.  You'll find me at link #16 and TONS of inspiration from all of the RSC Quilters.  Go LOOK!!

Until next time...
Get scrappy!!!
