RSC18 May

The Rainbow Scrap colors for May are rose and pink.

I am having fun participating in the Squared Away Sampler project. Here are my three 5″ unfinished Baton Rouge blocks:

On the design wall are all of my blocks for the Squared Away Sampler:

I will be linking up with So Scrappy.  Check out the link and see what others have done with pink and rose this month!

If you would like to participate in the RSC18 Squared Away Sampler project, click on the link to read all about it.  You can also visit The Academic Quilter for great tutorials on making the blocks.  No need to make the 5″ block size that I am making.  Perhaps you want to make a 20″ block or something in between!

Learn about a variety of blocks, use those scraps and have fun!

Here is what else I have been working on:

It has been raining, but I have done quite a bit of weeding, and the flower beds are looking pretty happy!

Butterfly Garden Update

My April goal was to start a new project, the Butterfly Garden quilt, and get it to the flimsy stage.

I was able to do that, and I have since added borders and fused applique.

The applique still needs to be stitched down.  It blends with the background, so I may choose threads that will create contrast.

Since the borders are a pink and rose fabric, I think I can consider this as an RSC18 project for this month.

But I do have the May Squared Away Sampler blocks for RSC18 on my list to make this month.

RSC18 February

 

February OMG 2018

I am going to carry over January’s goal to February.  In other words, I really do want to get the On Ringo Lake mystery quilt pieced into a flimsy.

On Ringo Lake

If I manage to do that, then I would like to begin sewing on a tunic for myself.

I purchased the Laundry Day Tee pattern (from Love Notions), and some knit fabric.  The goal will be to get my paper pattern printed and pieced together (already working on this), and then cut my pieces from the knit fabric.

I have six solid color knit yardage pieces to eventually sew into six tunics.

But I will start with one and learn as I go.  A garment maker, I am not.

At least, I hope I can manage to get this much done.  Doesn’t seem like much, but it is the way I roll.

January OMG 2018 Update

True to myself, I am sewing ever so slowly.

I thought my day job was going to cut my work hours, but, alas, not so.  That means no blissfully sewing my days away.

My January goal  was to work on my version of Bonnie Hunter’s On Ringo Lake mystery quilt.

I have completed all of the components, so I am a happy girl.

All 50 blocks are sewn!

The sashing is also done!

And the setting side and corner triangles are completed.

I have even managed to begin piecing the top!
