Welcome to the February 2023 edition of the ABC (Table) SCRAPS Challenge here at the Joyful Quilter!! Thanks for stopping by the Link Party to see what participants have made this month. It's amazing that we're a full 2 months into the "new" year. Time flies when you're having fun!
I host this challenge in conjunction with Angela's (RSC) Rainbow Scrap Challenge @ So Scrappy. It's been SEW much fun to offer the...

Since basically ANY small quilted item qualifies for this challenge, I scrounge through my scrap basket to see what I can come up with.
Each month I offer a prompt to help get your creative juices flowing. While you are NOT required to use it in your project, the guiding word is revealed at the end of each month's LINK PARTY post. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see August's focus. It, along with the RSC Color of the Month (as soon as Angela releases it - around the 1st of the month) will also be added to the 2023 ABC (Table) SCRAPS Challenge page at the top of the blog.
February's letters were...
M and/or V
Here's what I did with that...
The Rainbow Scrap Challenge Color of the Month was PINK. Surely I can find something fun and exciting in my scrap basket to represent this month's letters...
So I sorted through and found precious little to use!
This UFO was calling my name, so I loaded it up on the longarm:
It has the color that I was hoping to use for the M in my project, but these scraps do, too:
Then, I dreamed about a project for this month's ABC Challenge...
Literally! I woke to a vision of my entry and made it happen that day. This is the "down and dirty" sketch that I drew up at breakfast:
I'm pleased to present my completed ABC (Table) SCRAPS Challenge entry for February that dreamed up earlier this week:
How does that fit this month's theme???
As I mentioned before, it worked like this:
M = Magenta scraps were included in my block.
V = My project is a Valentine for next year's holiday decor.
What's next, Joyful???
March will be headed in like a lion or a lamb in just a few days. Angela will choose a new Color of the Month soon. Update: GREEN!!!
March's letters are:
B and/or U
NOTE: Take them wherever they lead you.
It's time for YOU to link up your M and/or V projects in the LINK PARTY below. All entries MUST be submitted by Tuesday, February 28th @ 11:59PM (EST).
Until next time...
USE those table scraps!!!
