The first week of our 2019 Rainbow Scrap Challenge and I'm happy to see Angela has chosen the color RED! I have so many ideas, all stolen from RSC participant Saturday link ups. Pictured are two 49-Patch blocks and eight 16-Patch blocks. The 2019 RSC Tuesday Sampler looks like FUN so, yes, I'll be playing along. To see what others made with RED fabric, go here.
Oh my. December was filled with lots of Christmas sewing. Some things went out the door before I took a picture. Any hoo. Pictured are three 18" totes made from Laura Burch fabric.
I made several media totes for gifts. Media as in Movie and cartoon prints.
Another large media tote, three pillows made with Laura Burch fabric and Avengers fabric. Five Tiny Tiny Coin Purses. Tutorial here..
Finally, a couple charity doll quilts. I hope to continue sewing and donating a two doll quilts a month this year.

Ebenezer Donation Quilt, Great-Grandchild Quilt, Two Large Media Themed Totes, Two Super Hero Bibs, Three Doll Quilts
My Quilt Guild had a community service sewing day to make baby quilts and youth quilts for our local Ebenezer Christian Family Center. I worked on this quilt while there, finished it at home and donated during our quilt's October meeting.
Great-grandchild number four is due soon. I made this DC Super Hero quilt from a panel for him. Such an exciting time for our family.
I made six baby bibs for great-grandchildren. Here are two of them.
A few years ago I bought "The Everything Bag" tote bag pattern by Fons & Porter's. It makes a large tote bag. I'm not sure how many totes I have made using this pattern, but people that receive them seem to like them. I have one and use it a lot because it can easily carry a few items or several items. These were given to two grandsons with quilts in them. I call them media themed totes because the fabric strips were cut from licensed fabrics like Marvel, Disney, etc.
This is a charity baby quilt that I'll donate during our November Quilt Guild meeting. It measured about 41" square after a go in the washer and dryer.
Doll quilts are fun to sew. I gave two of these away, The third will be donated.

I pulled 16 string blocks from last year's RSC collection and made a charity baby quilt. I donated it during our monthly quilt guild meeting last week. It was about 41" square.
Next I pulled the 36-patch blocks made during this RSC year and make a throw quilt. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 51" x 62".

No orange RSC pieces to show this week. I'm looking forward to working with September's RSC color. Pictured above is a finished baby quilt using four Growing Up Odd blocks sashed with a pretty pink. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander and finished at 39" square. This is a charity quilt that I'll turn in during our quilt guild meeting today.
I'll also turn in these two colorful doll quilts that will go to Ebeneezer.
Next weekend is our annual quilt show. I'm still working on my quilt show challenge piece. My next post post will have pictures of quilts from our show.

A finish this week! I'm calling it "Fun With Crayons." I made the scrappy 5" wide string crayons last year. Here they are sashed with 2" Kona White strips. I added 5" string blocks on the left. The block patterns for the five 12.5" blocks on the right are from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book. The inner yellow border was 1.5" wide strips. The turquoise outer border was 5" wide. The binding is pieced with 10" strips in rainbow color order. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander and finished at 68" x 84".
