After playing with my scraps I'll add four Happy Scrappy Houses, four 8.5" blocks, four midget blocks and a knitted green cotton yarn dishcloth to my collections. Purple is my favorite rainbow scrap challenge.
To see what others made with their purple scraps, go here Saturday morning.

Much of this week has been spent piecing my triangle quilt quilt top. Another day or so and it will be a quilt top. Not sure how to even up the sides correctly, but I imagine there will be suggestions/instructions this week. Thankfully, I didn't prewash the fabrics and I'm using lots of "Best Press" and lots of pins.

April's RSC color is purple. Pictured are three 8.5" scrappy string blocks to go with one I made last year. A yellow cotton knitted dishcloth made it into the picture. To see what other's made with their purple scraps go here.
Finished piecing my scrappy Quilty Fun 67.5"x 67.5" Be Happy quilt top this morning. Went with four different floral fabrics for a 6.5" fun border. The pattern suggests a scrappy binding but I think I'll use a red floral fabric to tie everything together.

This week I starched and pressed my fabrics and cut triangles for my triangle quilt in Sassy Quilters "Triangle Quilt Along." Looking good so far.

Pictured is progress on my "Full House" wall hanging for "Let's Book It 2014" hosted by Vrooman's Quilts. In this sew along we looked through our books, magazines, and patterns and chose something to make! I bought this pattern a year or two ago and it languished until Sharon's challenge. I'm going through my batik scrap box and having a good time building houses. My plan is to finish piecing the top next month.

This week I'll add two scrappy string triangles, two 6.5" sampler blocks, a hot pad/pot holder and a cotton knitted dishcloth. To see what others made with their scraps, go here Saturday.
This morning I finished my Celtic Solstice Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter. Yah! Bound with strips of blue fabrics, quilted with a loose free motion meander, and a go in the washer and dryer, it finished a 77" square. I'm pleased with this soft, beautiful quilt, glad it's no longer a UFO.

This is the first week of The Sassy Quilter's Triangle Sew Along. Her button is on the side of my blog. Click the button link for more information. This week we sign up and show a picture of fabrics we have chosen to use for this challenge. I've had these S&M Fabrics from Australia for a year or two. I think they will make a pretty triangle quilt.
This is a picture of my "Bee In My Bonnet Row Along Quilt" hanging in the Wilkes County Library. I made it during Lori Holt's Row Quilt Sew Along last year. It won a ribbon in September's Wilkes County Quilt Show and will be on on display in the Library for a month. I'm doing a little happy dance.
