Welcome to Week 19 of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!! This week, my efforts were focused on sorting through this overflowing Quilted Scrap Basket and making some headway on my RED projects:
SUNDAY - This morning, I released a new Sew Some Love Sunday post and then...
I entertained myself with the following transition project for the RSC, as we move from April's light/bright blue to May's RED:
MONDAY - I was busy sewing binding on a quilt for Lutheran World Relief:
More about that in an upcoming LWR post.
Suffice it to say, when I finished stitching the binding down...
... The RED squirrels took over my sewing room:
TUESDAY - Those squirrels from yesterday wouldn't leave me alone until the scrap basket was empty. Just kidding! They just wanted to play with the pre-pieced bit they found and once it grew to mug rug size, they let me go about my business:
Today, that means a trip to the post office and a visit to my dentist for a cleaning. Am I the only one who hates to eat after getting my teeth cleaned? Just wondering.
WEDNESDAY - This morning, Linda stopped by to drop off a quilt for me to quilt:
I started quilting Carol's quilt while waiting to Zoom with LeeAnna...
Unfortunately, our internet went out, so Zoom was postponed. :o(( We enjoyed a lovely phone conversation instead. :o))
I finished Carol's quilt before dinner:
After dinner, I loaded AND finished this quilt made by Ruth B.:
THURSDAY - ZoomBEE
After the meeting, I was off to do a grocery pick-up:
Once the groceries were put away...
I pulled a selection of threads for Linda's quilt:
... Zoom time with LeeAnna:
FRIDAY - ZoomKNIT attendees enjoyed a visit from a long lost friend:
Then, I was off to buy a card to include with the Salt and Sand Hop Prize (which I need to get out in the mail.) While at the store, I ran into my friend Ann from my Monthly Evening Bee:
My day continued with some RED scrap play:
This is what DH brought home from work today:
Aren't they pretty? I guess he missed the RED memo! :P
SATURDAY - It's Link Party day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge! I hope you will join me in visiting Angela @ So Scrappy to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to this week. (OK, so I'm a little early to the party! I'll join in once the link goes live.)
Wanna see my favorite project of the week???
The National Quilt Museum is currently showing the "Modern Quilt Guild Retrospective" exhibit. Christine Perrigo's quilt "Northern Obsession" is among the quilts being shown. I saw RED and the sleek modern design of her quilt and the next thing I knew, scraps were flying all over the studio!
Here is the layout (much like Christine's) that came to be when the dust was clear. I knew it would be the perfect addition to my Kitchen Quilt Series or possibly this month's entry for the TABLE SCRAPS Challenge:
** Don't you worry! There's no need to call the Quilt Police. I have Christine's permission to share.
A few days ago, Angela released her paper pieced Exclamation Point tutorial for the Full Stop QAL. The traditional pieced version was released last week.
Until next time...
