Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Not Ready for Red Yet

So happy it's the weekend. Today is our down day.  My Guy organizes a three day workshop for the 5th graders in our county and set up for that starts tomorrow afternoon.  He'll be tied up with that all week.  I can't get off work to help with all 4 days, but I'll be doing demos and helping with break down on Thursday.  Life will even out for a few weeks once the workshop is over.  

We were out every evening this week, so my stitching time was pretty limited.  I did manage to finish up the last large aqua fan. 




I really like the star burst effect when the blocks are set together this way.  I still need to finish the small aqua blocks from last month.  Then I need to pull together my reds and see what I've got to work with to make this month's blocks.

Linking up with Socrappy for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and with Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap.

  1. This certainly pops! It is a wonderful burst of colour. I think this will be amazing when all the starbursts come together.
