Rainbow Scrap Challenge - No Black, but a Little Red

It was a good week in the sewing room.  Grand Illusion is a finished flimsy, finally.  No pictures yet, but I'll fix that once the sun is up today.  The plan is to get the backing made this weekend, then it can go off to Trudy for quilting.  I'll be happy to get that one off the WIP list before it becomes a UFO.  

In spite of the productive week, I'm still a month behind on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks.  I finished off June's teal Twinkle Star blocks earlier this week. 


Twinkle Stars, Tutorial by Andrea Feldbush of Soscrappy


There is only one star completed using July's color red.





So I'm still a month behind with the challenge.  Hopefully now that all the vacation and business travel is over, I'll have a chance to get caught up this month.  August's color is indigo for the sampler quilt, but Angela gave the option to use black as this month's color. My plan is to use black and gray for August's Twinkle Star blocks.  

But first there's laundry and a work report to finish up this morning.  Hopefully there will be some time this evening to at least pick out the fabrics for August's Twinkle Star blocks. 

Check out more scrappy fun over at Soscrappy.

  7. Lovely red block, Kate. There's always so much going on in summer, I think we all have to struggle to keep up with sewing projects.

  11. Good job with those blue block. I really love the spread of twinkle stars on your design wall. Very lively with movement but not overpowering. Each star is special.

  14. Hope you got your laundry & report done so you could play in the sewing room this afternoon. The polka dots give great movement to that twinkle star. Can't wait to see the newest stars when you catch up.

  16. You could flash these star blocks every day and I'd be happy. As a matter of fact, I'd sit by the computer waiting for your post... 8)

  17. What a splendid quilt - I would never have the patience (not to mention the skill!) to do this kind of thing - I just push buttons on my camera!

  18. It really is so hard to balance everything! Life definitely gets in the way of quilting sometimes, but you certainly have made great progress. Love the red star - perfectly pieced! Can't wait to see the others.

  19. I have great faith that you'll be caught up soon. Honestly, it isn't a race and if your behind, you'll get there as time permits. Have you done the color challenge before? I'm a challenge drop out from last year. The ones I did became a UFO. I'll get them out some time in the future. Keep up the great work. B
