Happy Valentine's Day! It stopped snowing and sleeting and the sun is shining today. Yah.
It's been a busy sewing week.
My friend Barbara saw and kindly let me know that I had three incorrectly turned block units in my Celtic Solstice quilt top. They were not difficult to make right as I had not started the quilting step. Thank you so much Barbara. I would have felt terrible when I found them after quilting and binding. I've also been piecing Quilty Fun and Goodnight Irene blocks that I'll show in later posts.
Today I'll post pictures of Scrappy Rainbow Challenge progress.
Last year I paper pieced 6.5" 60 degree pyramid units with scrappy strings. I'll continue making them this year or until I have enough for a quilt top. Forgot to piece some dark blue ones last month.
I'm going to start making 7" scrappy string blocks, too. Sometime I need to make something to use up the scrappy crumbs that are accumulating. Suggestions?
I pieced two pink scrappy happy houses, then wonky sashed those as well as two pink houses from previous RSC years. When I have 42 blocks, I'll have enough for a wonky scrappy happy house quilt.
Two 8.5" kitten blocks, three 5.5" coco mug blocks and a pink strip knitted dishcloth made it into the picture. The plan is to eventually sash the kitten blocks I make this year with purple fabric for a lap quilt. The mugs will probably be a long term project. Possibly a coco mug wall hanging or a quilt of coco mugs. The coco mug pattern is from Lori Holt's Quilty Fun book.
To see what others made with their pink scraps go here Saturday morning.
