ScrapHappy Saturday - RSC21 - Week 19

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:

This afternoon...

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.:


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:

Next, I trimmed up Ruth B's other LWR while waiting for...

... 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...


  1. Well, pretty good week working on projcts and meeting friends! Even the T-shirt is red, well done ;D I love these flying geese.

  2. The wave quilting on Ruth's quilt is awesome! Is that a panto you are doing? I know that was one of your goals for this year.

    Your red mug rug is super cute. I really like the three different blocks in it. Red squirrels are so much fun. :)

  3. Love that red mug rug. Sounds like in spite of being busy you got a lot done, especially getting to play with scraps. How fun to see someone you know in the store. We haven't done that since we left the town we grew up in - lol!

  4. Sounds/looks like you've had a great week. The not red roses are very pretty and I absolutely love your Northern Obsession. Happy Mother's Day! ~Jeanne

  5. I think there's too much fun at your place. You should pipe it down a notch or two. Bwahahaha! Carole's quilt is awesome! Love your play with red HSTs for the Table Scraps Challenge. Hmmm HST!!! ;^)

  6. My goodness, you were a busy bee quilting this week. Love the bits of red. I prefer pink roses to red =).

  7. Lol on the quilt police!?! Beautiful quilt by Carol. Quilted with diagonal squares?

  8. Your quilting machine has been getting lots of mileage these days! Love your little mug rug, and also that design with the HSTs!

  9. wowie... when you see it all in one post it shows what an overwhelming productive week it was. You contacted the designer, what good respectful action that was

  10. Lucky squirrels, who just hit on your red ready-sewn patches in the basket. Nice arrangement of HSTs in red and grey; they're looking good!

  11. Gosh, you are a busy woman! I wouldn't be able to come up with much for this RED month. It's a color I don't have much of in my stash - nor purple or brown. I just don't gravitate to those print colors. But in my solids stash, it's a different story. It's wonderful that you're still Zooming with friends. One of my weekly quilting groups has stopped doing that, now that everyone is vaccinated. We had 22 members in attendance, in person, at last week's meeting. Yay for a return to some normalcy! Your "Christine Perrigo" small quilt is looking really good. And that Exclamation block is pretty cool. So you're making the Full Stop quilt too?

  12. You got a lot done in a week, the quilt blocks look interesting with the grey and red on the design wall.

  13. making great progress on all fronts! loving your red projects!

  14. The row of red triangles looks great in the greys! Another good week!

  15. Lots of things happening in your week, as usual. Such beautiful Rose's, so thoughtful, pink is just as nice as red.

  16. You have been super busy! For some reason I was unable to view the exhibit, but I’ll watch for your version! Looks really cool, so far!
