ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC21 - Week 13

Welcome to Week 13 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!  This week's sewing was all about finishing up some small projects.  There may even be a bit of GREEN sewing.

Let's go to the video tape...

Wait!  Maybe we should start with what happened after yesterday's ScrapHappy Saturday post went live.

I had scheduled a stop at the Junior Quilter's to drop off her Easter dress:

I thrifted this name brand beauty several years ago and missed the gifting occasion for the original intended recipient.  Things have a way of working out.  JQ absolutely LOVES it!!

Are you sure that it's the middle of March?!  It's COLD outside, but I still did a grocery swap with Knittingsuek:

Needleb stopped by to drop off quilts:

GREEN mask by Tiffany and GREEN shawl by Hilary. Crafty friends are THE BEST!!

About an hour later she came back by, but that's a story for another day.  I hope you won't mind waiting.  It might have something to do with my new Creative Grids HRT Ruler, inspired by the work of Cynthia @ Quilting is more fun than Housework:

Project QUILTING, Season 12, The final reveal was released:

Now, we can move on...

SUNDAY - A new post went live for Sew Some Love Sunday.  You caught a glimpse of the highlighted quilt just moments ago.

The H2H Comfort Quilt Challenge is in full swing.  I added another string to each of my blocks:

MONDAY - Mini Monday and the Happy Dance.  Here's a preview:

Today was a studio day.  I sewed nearly all day long.  Here's the part I can show you.  Fortunately, there's a tiny bit of GREEN included for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:

The rest?  You'll have to wait until Thursday to see.  Maybe I can give you a little peek.  Hmm... This is the best I can do.  ALL of these threads were used in today's quilting marathon:

TUESDAY - I released a new Guest Blogger post this morning.  Once Jane's post was done, I went up to spend some time in the studio trimming another step on my H2H21 quilt:

This afternoon, I Zoomed with LeeAnna:

I actually did some machine stitching during the call, continuing with this scrappy red pin cushion project, among other (secret) sewing:

WEDNESDAY - I worked on finishing up my post for tomorrow's Salt and Sand Blog Hop.  I'm excited to hear what YOU have to say about my project, as it's somewhat of a departure from my norm.  Here's a preview:

THURSDAY - During the middle of the night last night, I scheduled the release of my Salt and Sand Blog Hop post.

This morning, twelve quilting friends met for ZoomBEE:

Once that was done, worked on finishing up my Stay At Home Round Robin:

Afterwards, I enjoyed some scrappy play in a (Blue) GREEN kind of way:

FRIDAY - At o-dark-thirty, the March 2021 Table Scraps Link Party went live.  I posted my project last week, but there's a review in today's post.

This morning's ZoomKNIT group:

After the meeting, I released another Guest Blogger post.  Be sure to check out Miss Pat's latest table runner for the TABLE SCRAPS Challenge.  And remember, the Link Party is open all weekend.

Later in the day...

I, apparently, started a new series of mini quilts.  More on that in next week's Mini Monday post.  Here's a preview:

SATURDAY - LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I'll join in once Angela @ So Scrappy releases her post.  There should be SEW many GREEN projects with the end of the month approaching!  Will you be joining me for a look-see?

Until next time...


  1. You are very productive, Joy. I need to learn how to work in several fronts.

  2. So many projects and so many people got your attention this week. You must be the inspiration behind the pink bunny. ;^)

  3. Another busy week for you! So glad you got dome time in as well as meeting up with friends!

  4. Busy busy.... now I better pop into the sewing room and finish my green table scrap runner so I can post!

  5. Giving the dress happens when it is suppose to we have discovered that.

  6. Another busy week. Those teal threads are so pretty! I can't wait to see them in the quilt.

  7. The dress is a sweet gift! Nice week but strange to see the winter garb still!
