ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC16 - Week 5

Welcome to Week 5 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  I would like to begin this week by saying a BIG thank you to all of you quilters who took the time to comment on last week's post.  I also want to apologize for not getting back to you via email, as I usually do.  My email system was not allowing any outgoing emails for several days and I was unable to catch up (so I had to just jump in where I was - when the system was repaired.)  I appreciate your understanding in this matter!!

SUNDAY, I made ONE Slab Block in BLUE, pictured out in the snow:

On MONDAY, schools were closed due to the icy road conditions.  You can imagine how upset DS2 was to hear about that... NOT!!!  I had a doctor appointment in the midday.

TUESDAY afternoon, I wanted to share the ONE Maverick Star block that I made in BLUE (from off-cuts of Dr. Pete's Wedding Quilt):

On WEDNESDAY, I went to Knit Group.  (Yes!  I'm aware that it's NOT Friday, but it's another one of those weeks involving doctor appointments.)  When I got home, I cleaned like a white tornado because the quilters are coming!!

I also did a bit of work on this.  And, LOOK!!  There's BLUE in the block:

What IS it, Joyful?!?!

Well, you will get a better look at it in tomorrow's entry.  (The day it's due!!!) However, I will give you a clue.  It started out as my Bluff Challenge block.

THURSDAY morning, the Quilt Group met at my house.  (Of course, you knew that from yesterday's entry, didn't you?)  After lunch, I thought I'd show you this String Block in BLUE (with PURPLE accents.)  Thanks again, Diane, for that bag of scraps!!  Everything except for the corners came out of it - those were from Dr. Pete's Wedding Quilt from scraps of blocks made at our UFO Sew-in:

On FRIDAY, I posted a new edition of Design Floor Friday.  Here's a preview:

 I also worked on O's T-shirt Quilt.  These are the "squared up" shirts awaiting the next Design Day...

... And THIS is the overflowing trash can (complete with BLUE scraps, of the T-shirt variety) shown so that you know just how much work got done:

After all of that cutting, I went downstairs to ice my shoulder.  Dratted rotator cuff injury!!!

SATURDAY morning, I was up bright and early to take DS2 and 2 of his friends to All-District Band rehearsals.  When I returned home, I joined Angela's LINK PARTY over at the So Scrappy blog. You may want to go see what all of the other RSC Quilters have been up to. I'm headed that way, myself. Enjoy!

Later...  I'll be heading back for the concert...  Wow!!!  What a WONDERFUL performance that promises to be!  Some of the BEST high school musicians in the Triangle area of North Carolina will be on stage at Raleigh's Memorial Auditorium.

Even later... It. Was. FABULOUS!!!

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. Congratulations on getting all those t-shirts squared up and ready to go. The prep work is always the hard part of those quilts. Hope the shoulder recovers from all that cutting.

  2. Such busy days and so much accomplished. Well done! Ice that shoulder and give it a rest and chance to recover.

  3. Sounds like you have a great evening planned after such a busy week. Prepping and getting those t-shirt blocks to that stage is a lot of work. Give the shoulder a break - don't want you down and out for a while with that injury. =)

  4. Fun to hear a out your week, and I really like that maverick star block! I need to learn how to make those!

  5. Sew much inspiration here! I really enjoyed following your links to the CCLQ and Design Floor Friday, too. You are sew busy and accomplished. Thanks for sharing ... :) Pat

  6. You got a lot done in spite of having such a busy week! I like that blue slab! I really need to make some of those!!!

  7. Lots of lovely work going on at your place. Hope your shoulder feels better soon.

  8. Quilting is sure hard on the shoulders. But we can't seem to stop. You are doing some fun stuff there and having a good time at it, so keep it up.

  9. Email and internet are finicky in my area so I feel your pain! The amverick star is great! And the slab - that is a great idea

  10. Cutting Tshirts is definitely the most onerous part for me of a Tshirt quilt!

  11. Well, it looks like you managed to squeeze a little fun into your week. I hope your shoulder feels better fast!

  12. Sounds like a very busy week, but you got lots done.
