ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC20 - Week 14

Welcome to Week 14 of the 2020 Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  It's transition week.  That time of the month where the RSC Quilters wind down working with one color and dig out the next.  As much as I love TEAL, I'm looking forward to seeing what April's color selection will be.

Read on and we'll find out together mid-week...

SUNDAYWhen Kate @ Life in Pieces commented on last week's productivity, this was my response:

The gift of TIME with limited distractions has been INCREDIBLE for my productivity!!! I miss my friends. I miss going and doing, but seriously?!  With no work to be done (outside these four walls), my productivity is through the roof! I'm still jumping from one project to the next, but with SEW much time to quilt? Bit by bit, projects are moving forward.

With Mt. Washmore quietly being tackled on Thursday and Friday this past week, I can concentrated on sewing these TEAL and purple blocks together for a baby quilt:

I also released a new edition of Sew Some Love.

MONDAY - I only got as far as the row assembly yesterday:

Mail Call!!!  Here's a LINK to my latest post.

TUESDAY - Today's task is to cut and sew binding on the quilt that I trimmed up last night:

My Evening Quilt Bee didn't go virtual, so we entertained ourselves by posting pictures collected by the blog editor.  I shared my completed "Ella Quilt" for Mercyful Quilts:

WEDNESDAY - Angela @ So Scrappy announced the new Color of the Month.  During the month of April, the RSC Quilters will be working with:

Light/Bright BLUE!!

I am SEW excited!!  This fits right in with Bonnie Hunter's NEW Sew-in-Place UNITY Quilt Along.  :o))

Gayle @ Mangofeet and I recently had a discussion about what the new color might be.  We agreed that it HAD to be something cheerful.  My guess was purple, but (as evidenced above) I was wrong about that.  Oh well, this works, too!

Today on the blog, I released the results of the Winter 2020 (Ravelry) UFO Club.  The post includes the quilt shown above.

THURSDAY - Jennifer @ Life's Little Adventures is practicing "sewcial distancing".  Libby is doing Alphabetical I-Sew-Lation.

I'm quilting my way through the Quarantine Chronicles and if you follow the link, you'll see how Week 2 panned out.  Meanwhile, Cathy @ CRAZY BY DESIGN is feeling like the solitary confinement is getting to her!

Me??  Hours spent in my studio are hard to come by on a "normal" day.  I am knocking this Corona-cation thing out of the park!!  

FRIDAY - The weekend has arrived.  Those of you who are working from the comfort of your own home will know this.  (And you are probably pretty happy about that fact.)  Sorry!  I'm having a little bit of trouble relating to that right now.  You see, I can't even TELL you how many times (this week) I found myself asking...
"What day is it?!?!"

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day over on Angela's So Scrappy blog.  Head over to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to.  I'll be there right after I get a picture of my Light BLUE scrap basket:

There!  This BIG basket of scraps is what I will hope to work through this month.  I have to say, I don't feel like I have been doing a very good job thus far.

My GOALS from the beginning of the year weren't that challenging, really.  A quilt top in the Color of the Month wasn't TOO much of a stretch (until I found out about Project QUILTING and forgot ALL about that monthly quilt top!!)

Looking at it now, it seems that I might need to alter the plan.  I'll think about it over the weekend and plan to make a statement sometime next week.

Until next time...
SCRAP healthy!!!


  1. Nice collection of light blues in your pretty "basket of blues"
    waving to you from afar ~ ~ ~ ~ Julierose

  2. Have fun with the basket! Waving from afar!

  3. I love your baby quilt. The colors are so nice. It looks like but it's not a Pecking Order block. It's a little bit different. I really like it. Working from home is not what it's seems. On a regular day it would be fun but now that everything is closed, the people I work with don't have their regular activities. They don't bring me much work to do. It's really boring actually. I just sit there waiting for an email to pop up. Ugh! I wish I was you. Enjoy the new color. ;^)

  4. Your teal and aqua magic stars are looking great together! I'm trying some in red, blue, and yellow, and it's pretty fun to see the design emerge!

  5. I do love those bright stars you are making. I have yet to find my light blue friendship stars... but have been on facebook video chat sitting in the sewing room for a few hours this morning. I got a 9 inch block cut and hand pieced! Not in blue though. I'm having trouble with the days of the week..... can't even do it based on what to watch at night anymore either. I hear a chain saw... need to go check on the boys. Happy stitching.

  6. Loving your teal and purple blocks. I have saved that pattern for future use :-) Be dafe and try staying sane. The first is a must, the second would be nice :-) Hugs from afar!!!

  7. I’m a bit envious of your productivity! I have no excuse...but no focus here lately! I have no idea what day it is, usually!
    I’m working on my OMG April project. I’ve ZOOMED with far away family, I’ve made some face masks and done the “usual” chores.
    I did a few hollow nine patches, put no geese migration blocks!

  8. Teal and purple? Who would have known these two look great together, such pretty little baby quilt!

  9. Pretty basket holding the pretty blues. Thank you again for the Magic Stars tutorial!

  10. I love those teal and purple stars!
    I think blue is actually a pretty convenient color for April - I've got blues all over my cutting table anyway, left over from Frolic and Unity. It's a great excuse not to fold them and put them away! (That's my story anyway)

  11. I like the picture of that little blue scrap basket, also like your idea of a top a month, after having done a whole quilt top one month out of my little scrap baggy I thought I should continue with the idea, haven't yet, but I do like the idea.

  12. Apparently there is a TV news show in Ohio that has a segment each day called, "What Day Is It??" Everyone is having a hard time keeping track :)

  13. You are doing a good job of keeping busy and productive!! Love your quilts. Now I know what an Ella quilt is!!
