ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC15 - Week 32

Welcome to week 32 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  This week I began work on my INDIGO scraps.  I included navy and some of the darker medium shades of blue, too.  Angela suggested that if we don't have INDIGO scraps that we may also want to work with the darker shades of purple, black, or gray scraps.  I'm not planning to add the black or gray, but I may work my way into the deeper shades of purple.  Let's see how the week pans out.

SUNDAY was reserved for putzing around the house. I did quite a lot of it (and some laundry, too!) before making my way up to the sewing room for a pressing date with some RED fabrics.  (Yes!  I realize that RED month is over, but I need these to go with my INDIGO fabrics during the month of August.)

For this UFO (that is actually on my list to be finished this quarter.):

On MONDAY, I pressed more of those RED fabrics that I showed you on Sunday and prepped one INDIGO Maverick Star:

TUESDAY saw the sewing machine meet strips of INDIGO and what came of it was TWO String Blocks made from a variety of fabrics from my gift scraps and a few of my own:

I took DS2 to the doctor for another lab draw, and then we took a road trip to pick up THIS "new-to-us" minivan for my DH:

On WEDNESDAY, I pressed the last of the RED to go with my UFO that incorporates our RSC Color of the Month, INDIGO and also added star points...

In order to complete ONE Maverick Star Block:

I started the afternoon with THIS much quilting to do on my Strawberry Upside Down {short}Cake Donation Quilt:

It took WAY longer than I expected to quilt it, but it's DONE!!  Well, the quilting is done.  I plan to bind it at the Donation Quilt Workshop coming up on Saturday.

THURSDAY was a bit of a logistical nightmare, as DS1 took my car to the mountains this week. Since the "new-to-us" van isn't registered yet, I had to get a ride to Quilt Group.  It was a small turnout this week, but we had a productive session and I got some hand sewing done.  :o))

When I got home, I got back to the sewing machine and created ONE Slab Block in INDIGO...

Before heading off to work.  (Yes, DS1 made it home in time for me to take my car.  Whew!!)

On FRIDAY morning, I went off to Knit Group (where I sewed half the time.)  I had hoped that there would be time for some "real" sewing in the afternoon before work, alas, there was not.  Grocery shopping and other errands kept me from my sewing studio.  Here's a LINK to what I was working on during the morning.

Friday afternoon, I found that (even though she is in Costa Rica) Angela posted another Sampler Block:

Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler - Road to California

SATURDAY is LINK PARTY day over at the So Scrappy Blog.  I didn't have enough time to join in before leaving for the DOQ Donation Quilt Workshop, but dinner waited while I added my link as soon as I got home.  (Priorities, right?!)  You'll find me at link number 21 this week and lots of INDIGO scrappy goodness that all of the Rainbow Scrap Quilters have been working on during the week.  Go check it out!!

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. Great Indigo fabrics - so rich! Maverick stars are so fun to make and use up all those odd pieces.

  2. Your indigo went a long way. Lovely string pieces and maverick star. I still like your slab block the best. It is soothing, but interesting. Good job with all you got done this week!

  3. Strawberry Upside Down Cake is so cute.

    Like Julie have more indigo than I do! (or at least more than I had in my scraps).

  4. Your posts are a delight to read each week.

  5. How nice your Maverick Stars are. That's one block that I need to try. So scrappy and so fun!

  6. Lots of pretty indigo! I really enjoy seeing your maverick stars each month.

  7. you did it! Congrats. Your maverick stars are always enticing. LeeAnna

  8. You did pretty well at digging up those indigo scraps. I hate busy days, I never feel like I've had a good day if I don't get a little bit of time in the sewing room.

  9. I do love to read your weekly wrap you add a bit each day, then post at the end of the week? I can hardly remember what I do from one day to the next. Can't wait to see that patriotic quilt I see hiding beneath the Reds!

  10. Busy, busy. Glad the car arrived home in time for you to use it. Your weekly wrap up is so fun to read each week. Hope your sewing machine got some attention this week.

  11. Great indigo prints. NICE mini-van. I enjoy reading your post each week.
