TidyUp Tuesday - Finishing Up February

Welcome to another edition of Tidy Up Tuesday!!  This week, I'm here to share a couple of PINK projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

First, an ongoing project...

This was the humble beginning of my PINK Scrap Jar Star block for February.  A little pile of scraps, my smallest rotary mat and a rendezvous with my rotary cutter in a few stolen moments during my lunch break:

Whoops!  Someone can't count and TWO WEEKS later, the block STILL wasn't done:

Who knew that it could take SEW long to complete a single quilt block?!  After posting to Angela's Link Party, I finally sewed up the 16-Patch portion on Saturday:

On Sunday afternoon, I trimmed up the HSTs for the star points...

And set up the block layout beside the machine before bed:

As February began to fade...

I finally assembled the block components before heading off to work on Monday:

With just ONE day to spare... Whew!!

The other project I have to share is a little bit of a cheat...

It's Maggie's QAYG Mini in PINK, a finish from earlier in the month: 

A mug rug in the February's Color of the Month was a welcome addition to my desk at work.  It was done during the first week, but I forgot to add it to my weekly RSC post:

About the "cheat" part...

That little mug rug came to me already quilted and ready for binding.  (Thanks, Maggie!!)  The funny thing was that she was surprised I found enough fabric in the scrap bag to bind it.

Until next time...
SEW pretty in PINK!!!


  1. Joy, that's a pretty pink ScrapJar star! I love your little mug rug, too. The brown and pink together are a great combination!

  2. Pretty scrap jar. I wonder what color March will be?

  3. Pretty pink scrap jar block. Love your cute little mug rug.

  4. What a pretty star! I like the way you added the pink square in the corners too. Sweet mug rug and the jokes on Maggie! haha

  5. What a gorgeous star! I'm impressed that you had that same fabric AND enough of it to bind that mug rug! What a win!!!--TerryK@OnGoingProjects

  6. Love the star! It can take a while, even when things are prepped....as I recall you had a good reason in getting some quilts ready for a family in need.

  7. Love your pink Scrap Jar Star with its gingham points. Cute mug rug too. Enjoy! ;^)

  8. With a day to spare is still on time. Your RSC block turned out beautifully. The mug rug is cute too. Good luck with your RSC plans for March. I need to see what color Angela picked for March. Green maybe?

  9. Love those stars, and the little does take a long time when we get
    distracted with other things!! Stay safe and sew on!

  10. Tflowers are beautiful! The pink star block is really pretty!
