ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC16 - Week 43

Welcome to Week 43 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  It's hard to believe how fast the year is flying by.  My boys are now 18 and 21. We have a (semi-) empty nest!!  How could that be???

While there WAS a fair amount of sewing done this week, it wasn't RSC sewing.  You may recall that I was off at Mountain Quilt Camp for the majority of the week.  Please see THIS post for more details about that portion of the week.

SUNDAY began with a mad rush to finish packing and ended with a trip to the mountains, but I checked out THIS POST while I waited for my ride to arrive.  It made me SEW happy to know that my scraps were appreciated and being used!!

Prepped a YELLOW Maverick Star before dinner:

On the way to dinner, I couldn't miss ORANGE leaves:

... And added the YELLOW star points after dinner:

On MONDAY morning, I missed Knit Group.  :o((

(It was worth is to be able to quilt the afternoon away!)

RSC sewing completed.  ONE Maverick Star block in YELLOW:

TUESDAY, I quilted ALL DAY LONG!!  Friends share some YELLOW projects for the RSC Color of the Month...

A little bit of YELLOW:

A lot of YELLOW:

On WEDNESDAY, I quilted late into the evening.  I should have known better!!

I missed THURSDAY my weekly quilt group meeting, but returned home from Quilt Camp during the middle of the afternoon.

I got the cutting right...

... And PART of the sewing:

But something went wrong... too late to fix it:

On FRIDAY, I had an early appointment and was busy all day.  It certainly takes a while to recover from a trip!!  Found that Angela posted the Row By Row - October pattern... on SUNDAY!! Thank you, Angela.  That looks like a FUN block!

SATURDAY is LINK PARTY day over at Angela's So Scrappy blog.  Head over to see what everyone has been up to this week. Especially, if you like sunny shades of ORANGE or YELLOW.

Until next time...
Get Scrappy!!!


  1. Wow, what a whirlwind week. Very pretty yellows in your star block.

  2. Your yellow star is bright and sunny! I love that new quilt you're working on, too - pretty colors!

  3. Lots of pretty orange and yellows in here. Love the "part of the sewing" project. It looks wonderful so far. Sorry to hear "something went wrong" with it. Hope you can fix it. Or wing it with something. Thanks a lot for the shout out. I humbly appreciate it. ;^)

  4. Sounds like a fun week playing with fabrics.

  5. You managed some good piecing this week despite the busy times. Sorry that your house sounds so quiet when you enter now. Fill it with music or whatever keeps you going, and gradually it will seem like home again.

  6. Busy busy busy. The emptier house is actually a good thing -- possibilities abound actually. We are blessed that both grown sons are local (as well as our wonderful DIL and grandson).

  7. What a quilty week you had! Looks like a lot of fun. : )
    Our empty nest seems to have had a revolving door. Our daughters are married and have families, but our sons are still single and as schooling costs have exceeded their income they have. at times, moved back to our basement apartment. I am thinking that phase may have passed, as they have both graduated now, but you never know for sure! : )

  8. Fun to read how you sandwiched in some sewing / quilting time in between the other activities! :)

  9. Fun to read how you sandwiched in some sewing / quilting time in between the other activities! :)

  10. I can't believe we are coming to another year of rainbow challenge being over. Keep finding time to sew.

  11. Love your yellow block. And I love all the quilts projects you shared.

  12. sounds like an overall very fun week of sewing.

  13. It sounds like a great quilts week!

  14. You, my dear, are a whirlwind! Glad you had such fun at camp!

  15. You stay so crazy busy!! The flying geese quilt top looks really interesting

  16. You have been busy! Loved the star block. I must try a Quilt Camp! Sounds like fun.
