Rainbow Scrap Challenge: Really Red and Totally (done with) Teal

Drama Teen's been on spring break this week.  I took off the last 3 days of the week to spend some time with her.  Since she decided to take off with friends on Wednesday, I got to sew most of that afternoon.  Thursday we did some prom dress shopping and found her dress. I also managed a quick trip to one of the quilt shops that's off my usual beaten path since we were out that way looking for fancy dresses.  We did some more just fun stuff and necessary stuff shopping on Friday.  Today is supposed to be warm and sunny, so My Guy wants to go hiking.  That's the plan for today. 

The last of the aqua and teal blocks are finished. 




These are the 3.5" fans that go with the 7.5 fans finished earlier.  I only need one set of each in aqua/teal for this quilt.  But I'll need 4 sets of 4, 3.5" fans from the red.




I made a start on the first set of 4.  This set uses what reds I had available in 1.5" and 2" strips.  Cutting from strips was much faster than cutting around the templates. 

That's it for me this week in terms of scrapping sewing.  Linking up with Soscrappy for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and with Quilting is More Fun than Housework for Oh Scrap on Sunday.
