rsc yellow ps from Making A Lather

I am starting the month with the tiniest pieces for the rainbow scrap challenge. I am hoping the color is yellow. I had been adding yellow psp20 blocks as I was making other psp20 blocks, if I found yellow in my scraps. Otherwise, I would not have made them, since, I am committing to finishing a quilt before I work on anything else.  So far, it's been a week, and, I have kept that commitment.
Yellow is my official favorite color.






I have already started looking ahead to next year's rainbow scrap challenge, and, decided it will be ...

to do: shine from Making A Lather

I'm still playing catch up from last week. I finished the last Shine blocks that, I had missed during the rainbow scrap challenge.





I had started purple psp 20 blocks and needed to finish them.


It's fall in Indiana. There is a certain blue to our sky that I love. I like the temperatures, but, not the shortening of the day. Hubby has been busy finishing the tomatoes and peppers. And we have another batch of salsa ahead of us. I saw a cute idea for a pumpkin this year, and, we went in search of the perfect ...

postage stamp red from Making A Lather

Little tiny squares and I are having fun in red for the rainbow scrap challenge. Some of the blocks turn out better than others. I don't know if they were not cut accurately or I get in a hurry and sew them too quickly. It's hard to be patient. Each block is different and interesting in it's own way, and, I want to see it.



I was able to sew the red row for the row x row. I have only yellow to go. I plan on putting the rows together soon. I can hardly wait. The ...

easy breezy from Making A Lather

 I wanted to try a neutral background for my psp20 blocks. I didn't use a single piece for the light background 1 1/2 inch squares. I just used anything hanging around in the basket I had on hand. I realized I might want to add more dark and light blocks to my growing pile. But, mostly, I will make my blocks according to the color of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge. 


I've been adding a few easy breezy blocks each week. I find that, when I poke around in my 2 or 1 1/2 ...

tiny purple squares from Making A Lather

 I have caught the postage stamp bug, and really can't concentrate on my other projects. I have 1 1/2 inch strips, but, very few 1 1/2 inch squares. I wasn't worried, because, I can cut squares from strips. My quilty friend was very supportive, and shared a zip lock bag of squares. It's always fun to see other quilter's fabrics. My plan was to grab a handful, and return the rest. She wouldn't take them back. haha.



My biggest challenge is having a solid strip long enough to do the whole block ...

to do: cut purple from Making A Lather

We have had great weather and have enjoyed outdoors, and, even found a monarch on our flower tubs. We have planted milkweed in our yard, but, it hasn't bloomed. What a surprise to see our own monarch butterfly.


I have spent the month cleaning and sorting my purple scraps as part of the rainbow scrap challenge this month.  I had an entire wire basket of scraps in that color. Apparently, it had been a long time since I sorted through and organized it. I certainly didn't think I had that many scraps.
I don't like the ironing ...
