ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC21 - Week 4

Welcome to Week 4 of the 2021 Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!!  Our hostess, Angela @ So Scrappy, is expecting the RSC Quilters to sew with our PINK fabric scraps this month.  I may or may not have been thrilled with this selection, but I will comply.

SUNDAY - Trish @ Quilt Chicken released the PQ12.2 challenge prompt over on Persimon Dreams.  I am feeling clueless as to how to approach it.  :o((

MONDAY - I got a slow start to the day, but released a new Mini Monday post before Needleb stopped by at noon to do a quilt swap:

She traded a completed LWR quilt for the batting and backing needed to complete her next one.  More on these items at a later date.

After lunch, I made my Hashtag block for Angela's RSC21 Sampler:

And consulted with Preeti on fabric options for my Picket Star block in PINK:


I loaded the next quilt on the longarm:

TUESDAY - Another quilt swap with Carol:


Zooming with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color:

After dinner...

I got started on Nancy's quilt:

WEDNESDAY - Yippee!!  It was grocery processing day.  To counterbalance that nastiness, it was Inauguration Day here in the US.  Momentous in that our nation's FIRST female Vice President was sworn in.  It was also the day that I finally got a start on my PQ12.2 challenge entry.

Fish to Fussy Cut:


... Was followed by DH and I driving around the neighborhood trying to decide on the color for our new roof.  Ugh!  We have a hard enough time deciding on a paint color.  A roof is WAY more permanent (since you can always just repaint, if you don't like the wall color as much as you thought you might!)

During an impromptu Zoom call with LeeAnna...

I worked on loading the next quilt on the longarm, but neglected to get a photo of it.  The bright quilt was on and off the rails in no time:


... Was followed by a quilt pick-up of the blue one below:

That quilt pick-up was followed by a little bit of this...

... And a little bit of that, along with a new Design Floor Friday post:

SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, already?!?!  At least, I had a (TINY) bit of PINK to share during the week.  Once I visit my RSC Quilter friends, I'm going to make a judgement call and decide on a binding from among the following PINK options:

Until next time...


  1. Great week in review with the quilty focus!

  2. So many projects! I can't wait to see the picket star block in those fabrics. My 2 cents on the table runner binding is choose something that also works with the back. Then it will be reversible.

  3. Have fun with your binding. Lots of great pink choices. Even if pink isn't your favorite, at least you have crossed it off the list for this year. All the colors deserve to have some attention.

  4. You have some very nice pinks! I think the picket stars will look great in those fabrics, and I'm jealous of your productivity with all those quilts. I love pink, so if you're tired of those scraps. . .Have another productive week!

  5. So glad you found an idea for your Project Quilting challenge! That looks like the perfect fabric for some fussy cutting.

  6. Nancy's quilt looks like such a fun pattern. Yeah! I'm glad you got your pink hashtags done on the Full Stop bandwagon. It's so much fun quilting together. :)

  7. top pink in the photo for binding? Another busy week finishing up quilts for you I see. I hope to pin one today... since it is turning into a rainy and dreary day here in Florida. Must make soup first and warm up my toes - they got chilly sitting out at horses this morning.

  8. That was a fun meander through your week. :)

  9. Your week was busy. So many finished quilts.

  10. great week and the hashtag looks nice

  11. Some fabric, some quilts, some ZOOMing, and grocery processing thrown in. You’ve been busy! I need to get some hashtag blocks made!

  12. looks like you added quilting to that runner?

  13. Lots happening here as usual. So many Zoom meetings, nice to see your smiling face in all those screen captures.

  14. I love to read your blog. You are so energetic and seem so happy and you are pleasant. I know the current trend in roof colors and house colors is dark BUT, they do absorb more heat. I would like to know how much these in style people's electricity bill goes up. It is like I told my great-niece just because it is in style does not mean it is the right choice for you. Happy trails.

  15. OMG! I love that black & white quilt with the turtles! Hope you had a cool design for the quilting on it. Lots of fun going on in your weekly wrap-up!
