Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Twinkle Pink

This week was incredibly long, it seemed that the weekend would never get here.  Not that the weekend is going to be any less busy.  Drama Teen has a formal dance tonight, plus has to finish up her Science Fair entry.  I'm on hair and makeup duty for the first, then Photo Shop and science consultant on the second.  I may not get in a lot of stitching time this weekend. 

But thankfully there were  a couple of nights this week where I got in a bit more than 30 minutes in the sewing room.  I finished the first pink Twinkle Star block,

plus made a good start on the second block. All the fabric combinations are picked out for the other four blocks.  I should be on track to finish all 6 blocks this month.  

Work continues on finishing off the blocks on the 2014 Rainbow Scrap projects.  The Inverted Star and Scrappy Butterfly projects both still need one more block.  The last Inverted Star block is in progress.  



























A setting has been worked out for the Butterfly quilt, but I hadn't come up with one for the Inverted Star blocks.  After playing around in EQ some this week,  I figured out the setting for Inverted Star.

available from Craftsy as a free download.  Setting is self designed.  


It's another pieced border, so it will take a bit longer to finish this project off, but I really like the Sawtooth Stars.   I don't have anymore of the white fabric I used for the Inverted Stars, so I need to find something else in the stash that will blend with that fabric. It's a scrap quilt so that shouldn't be too much of a problem.  I'll probably add this little 4 x 5 blocks to my list of blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge each month once I find some white fabric.  

That's it for my scrappy endeavors this week.  Check out all the links over at Soscrappy for some great inspiration on how to use up all your scraps.

  20. You have lots of things on the go at once. I find I have to concentrate on one thing otherwise nothing gets finished (well two things because I usually have one hand project/one machine project on the go).
