ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC20 - Week 46

Welcome to Week 46 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  While many of the RSC Quilters have gone into finishing mode, I chose to work through some of my LIGHT Neutral scraps this month.  At least, for the first half of the month.

Let's see how that worked out this week...

SUNDAY - Last Saturday, I shared this photo and I thought you might like a better look at those LIGHT Neutral projects:

At the top of the photo above, the start of this month's Gallery Wire Mini was waiting to be pressed:

In the center of the photo, you will see a stack of Crumb blocks which became the now-pressed units of the panel-in-progress for November's Quilted Scrap Basket Challenge that I am participating in with Judy @ Busy Hands are Happy Hands:

The project at the bottom of the photo was begun after watching a Scrap Busting Pillow Project video from Jordan Fabrics on YouTube.  Donna grabbed a handful of scraps and started sewing.  I was inspired to do something similar with my own scraps and created the beginnings of this month's Kitchen Quilt:

MONDAY - Household chores, gardening, and paperwork filled the bulk of my day.  I was able to quilt the last bit of Maggie's 2nd Lutheran World Relief quilt:

TUESDAY - During a break yesterday, I found that I had been featured on the SereneKnitty (29:11) video podcast.  My friend Tracy was sharing her current knitting project and gave a shout-out (Thanks, T!!) for my Custom Quilted Yarn Bowls.  She has two of them and one of the projects she shared was housed in the larger of the two  Tracy has a basket for single-skein projects and another for multi-skein projects:

This morning I made good progress on sewing up some of my LIGHT Neutral scraps:

WEDNESDAY - This morning was filled with grocery processing and laundry.  Just after lunch, Carol stopped by to drop off a quilt for the longarm:

This afternoon, I enjoyed a Zoom call with

While waiting for meeting time, I prepared binding for Maggie's second LWR Mission Quilt using a chunk from the fabric sent by Wendy @ The Constant Quilter...

... And wound it during our chat:

A new edition of Wonderful Wednesday was released this evening.  Late yesterday afternoon, I finished this month's Gallery Wire mini.  Here is a preview:

THURSDAY - My Weekly Quilt Group went back to our ZoomBEE meetings this week.  These friends all joined in, along with one more, but I neglected to take an updated photo:

After the meeting, I prepared the next client quilt for the longarm:

Once I was done with lunch, I decided to apply the binding to the next LWR Mission Quilt...

After tea time, I actually stitched the binding down:

Before bed, I got a start on quilting this month's Kitchen Quilt:

FRIDAY - ZoomKNIT met this morning with these six knitters enjoying a couple of hours together knitting and chatting:


I quilted, bound, AND posted about this small quilt in a new edition of Design Floor Friday:

SATURDAY - I can't believe how fast the weeks pass!  You KNOW what today is, don't you???  It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over on Angela's So Scrappy blog.  How many of the RSC Quilters will be working in LIGHT Neutrals?  Let's go see.

Until next time...


  1. Your light neutral blocks are very pretty, beautiful mix of fabrics. Looks like you had a lot of fun chatting with online friends!

  2. You are always so productive, and your neutrals look so good together. I may have an LWR quilt for you, too. Have a happy weekend!

  3. The weeks do go by fast, whether we're busy or not! You're making great progress on your LWR quilts. I love that pretty binding that is rolled up so nice and neat!

  4. just looking at your pics reminded me I want to do some wild couching on neutrals this week... woohoo

  5. No light neutrals for me. Trying to get some tops together this month. Love your neutral kitchen hanging.

  6. I love the photo of you on the zoom call with (some of?)your stash behind you. People on the news have their books behind them, quilters should have fabric! Your light neutrals are gorgeous.

  7. I fell off the RSC wagon with a thud last month. Haven't even broken out the yellows, much less the neutrals! Oh well, I'll get to them at some point. Your binding photos remind me that a member of my guild made a shocking statement: that she NEVER irons her binding in half. Just holds it in place when sewing it to the quilt. What?? I tried it, and it works JUST FINE. A real game changer for me, since I often need to avoid using the iron. I've now bound at least 12 quilts this way!

  8. I love the postage stamp quilt! Beautiful!

  9. Busy, busy! I like the looks of all those light neutrals.
