The Sofa Quilt is still under construction. I've gotten stalled on the flying geese for block B. I don't mind making the geese, but I hate trimming them. They've become a demotivator. So the rest of the geese will be finished as leaders and enders so I can get caught up on some other projects. It's much easier to stay enthusiastic if I only have to trim a couple at a time.
Having relegated the Sofa Quilt to a leaders and enders project for the moment, I switched my attention to making this month's blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I finished up all three blocks yesterday.
My Guy really liked this one. He was a little less thrilled with the last two.
Actually, he was OK with the top one, but asked me if I couldn't have found something other than the lambs for the third cup. The answer to that was no. I don't have much teal in my stash. I bought two fat quarters to make the "leafy" cup. Since this is supposed to be a project made from scraps, I didn't want to buy any more than I actually had to have. I like the little lamb cup, it reminds me of something that might be in a little girls play tea set. Here's the entire set of cups made to date.

I'm pretty happy with how this project is coming along. It's been fun and a good learning experience. The blocks are 6" finished. I don't usually work that small, or with so many pieces. It really forces me to concentrate on sewing accurately so the pieces all fit together at the end. I'm glad it's the end of the month as I'm looking forward to finding out what September's color will be.
Time to get ready for work, so I guess that's it for me this week. I'm linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times as usual.
