ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC20 - Week 17

Welcome to Week 17 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week, the RSC Quilters are continuing to work through their Light/Bright BLUE scraps.  I'm going to try to USE a few more.

Let's see how that went...

SUNDAY - Early this morning, I released this week's Q.2 challenge POST for the Quarantine Limited Edition.  This afternoon felt like a Bonus Day!!!  How?  It's complicated.  Suffice it to say, I spent the entire afternoon sewing.  Yay!!  REAL progress on my niece's baby quilt - with bits of Light/Bright BLUE:

MONDAY - Mini Monday!!!  Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict had an little quilt show today.  Find out more in THIS POST.

There really IS some Light/Bright BLUE involved in the project.  See?!  This CHICKEN fabric is the back chosen for my small quilt:

I chose it on Sunday.  The day that Corona made me miss a date with Kevin the Quilter.  His visit (along with the Goodnight, Darlene class I was signed up for) was canceled.  :o((

TUESDAY - The Bright BLUE bag in the photo below is absolutely LOADED with scraps, chunks, and yardage from my stash.  I delivered it to my friend for her mask making mission:

WEDNESDAY - DH took a trip back to my MIL's to install her new hot water heater.  You know what THAT means, don't you?!?!

More quilting time... ALL DAY!!!  :o))

The most important thing that happened during that time was burying the thread tails in my friend's quilt before she came over to pick it up.  She stayed in her car and I popped it in the floorboard in the back.  One last look at it's super scrappy beauty (with bits of Light/Bright BLUE for the RSC) before it headed home:

THURSDAY - I shared a few projects at my ZoomBEE meeting this morning, got started on the post our group blog, and assembled the top of my niece's baby quilt this afternoon.  Here is a closer look at the Light/Bright BLUE which is well represented in the adorable rainbow kitty fabric:

Before dinner, I headed over to Needleb's for a brief (masked) socially distant visit.  I had a thread emergency and she had a potential solution in her newly acquired thread stash:

Notice, RSC Quilter friends, I'm wearing a LIGHT blue mask and a BRIGHT blue shirt.  I've got the Color of the Month well represented.  :o))

FRIDAY - This morning's activity was my ZoomKNIT meeting.  I stayed longer than I thought I would, but enjoyed every minute of it!  I was especially thrilled to hear that my friend had posted a photo (on Instagram) of (some of) the fabrics that I delivered and had already made masks from the some of them:

Design Floor Friday???  Yep!  I released a new post this evening. 

The time in between morning and night, I switch back and forth between longarm loading tasks and and working on that baby quilt.  All in all, it was a very good day.

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day over at So Scrappy!  Angela encouraged the Rainbow Scrap Challenge participants to use their Light/Bright BLUE scraps during April.  You are sure to see every tint and shade.  There may even be some finishes this late in the month!  I'm headed over now to find out.

Until next time...
SCRAP healthy!!!


  1. Your groups are doing a great job meeting over Zoom! I'm impressed! That cat fabric you're showing is too cute!

  2. Isn’t Zoom the best? And they have come through in spades as far as upping their band width or whatever and putting in place better security measures for hosts allowing people in who want to join and more. Lots of blue fun here!

  3. As usual your productivity makes me swoon. Love that rainbow cat face fabric. I cant believe its the last week in April already. I hope we get another cheery color for May.

  4. You are doing a great job keeping busy and productive!

  5. Looks like you had a fun and busy week, as always! Love the cat fabric, and your friend's scrap quilt. Nice job on the quilting!

  6. Man, you stay busy! I’m impressed! I’ll be looking forward the reveal of the baby quilt,

  7. Aren't we glad that we are quilters, sewists and knitters. Always something to keep us busy and occupied usefully.
