Rainbow Scrap Challenge: All Caught Up

I'm declaring today a NBS day (nothing but sewing, a term borrowed from Barbara who blogs over at Cat Patches).  Work has been rough with project deadlines, instrument failures, and changes in direction/programs.  A day of stitching therapy to fortify myself for next week is sorely needed.  

As far as Rainbow Scrap Sewing goes, I'm all caught up on the Squared Away blocks.


 Squared Away Sampler
designed by Mari (The Academic Quilter) and Angela (Soscrappy)

 The reds look a little dull in the photograph, but they are actually very vibrant up on the design wall.  Maybe I'll take some time this weekend to put the whole set of blocks back up on the design wall and see if I can come up with a setting plan.  

Linking up over at Soscrappy for this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge post and linking up with Oh Scrap over at Quilting is More Fun than Housework on Sunday. Happy stitching this weekend.

I love the idea of a NBS day! I hope you get to spend yours doing just that. I plan to spend most of the day in the sewing room too.

What a great feeling to feel all caught up on a project--good for you--and they are very pretty blocks at that--I have always loved 'red' and usually have red in my kitchens!!!
enjoy, di

Your blocks turned out great. I'm sure they will look great in the finished quilt.

I agree, your blocks look wonderful. It was nice to have another easy block so we could all get caught up. Thanks for sharing yours with Oh Scrap!

I love your Squared Away blocks and how Mari's pattern this month looks round when you step back from it.

Bonnie said...

Nice block. And, wow I could see that one making a dent in smaller amounts of fabric. Hum, maybe a full strip. Hope the week is less stressful. Ugh, who wants changes to programs?

Love your red 'squared away' blocks, perfect for teis RSC each month. And, your background fabric is great!(I need to chack back, but are you using the same neutral for all your blocks?)

Linda @ kokaquilts said...

oops... this RSC
