Rainbow Challenge update

For the first time in more weeks than I can remember, I missed making a blog post to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge last Saturday. I guess it was mostly because I had so little to report for the week. This week hasn't been the most productive, but at least I have something new to show.


I finished making my last two 12" LeMoyne star blocks this week. Our assigned color for November is light blue, but I have gone off in my own direction in order to finish out my color palette. This brings me to a total of twelve blocks (you can see most of the other blocks HERE.) Once I get sashing and borders added, they will make a good size for a wall hanging or small quilt . Thanks to everyone who commented last month on which additional colors to use.

Stash Report Sunday and 15 Minutes to Stitch

Kate over at Life in Pieces has been reporting on her efforts to stitch for 15 minutes every day. She had previously hosted the 15 Minute Challenge, and that really motivated me to make time for at least a little time spent quilting every day. Very often, that 15 minutes turns into 30 minutes or an hour. 

I have managed to get my 15 minutes or more every day so far in November. Unfortunately, I don't seem to have a lot to show for it, but I know I am making progress on a few different projects.

As for my stash report, this is the first week in quite awhile that shows more fabric added than fabric used. I had ordered a piece of fabric from Joann's for a Christmas gift, and since I was already paying for shipping, decided to add another fabric I've had my eye on. Unfortunately, the gift fabric was out of stock, but I do have this lovely print to add to my stash. I'm going to take a look at how well it works with my Rainbow LeMoyne blocks.


Fabric used was 1/4 yard for more Tell It to the Stars border blocks. I think I have 14 more of those blocks to make.


Used this week:                             .25 yards
Used year to date:                   115.875 yards

Stashed this week:                        2  yards
Stashed year to date:               103.0 yards 

Net year to date:   
                   12.875 yards used

Scraptastic Tuesday (a day late)




It isn't Tuesday anymore, but I still have time to link up to Scraptastic Tuesday, hosted by Leanne at she can quilt and by Nicky at Mrs. Sew and Sow.

Most of my quilting time lately has been spent on my Scrap Hexie Stars and Snowflakes project. I haven't been able to do much machine sewing, but I can usually do some hand stitching of hexies on my commute to work in the mornings. I have finished making all of the stars and snowflakes, and now I am concentrating on adding black-on-white background hexies around all of the large stars, like on the green and brown stars below.





I am so excited to check out all of the other posts for Scraptastic Tuesday! You can visit Leanne and Nicky's blogs to see plenty of scrappy goodness!

Design Wall Monday 11/10/14

I am still struggling with the border blocks for the Tell It to the Stars mystery quilt. I finished up twelve blocks on Saturday, but it took lots of un-sewing and trimming to get them to finish at the right size. If you zoom in on the photo, you will see straight pins in several blocks. The pins are marking where my blocks are a little small, but I should be able to make up for that when I join the blocks together.




I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times where you can see all sorts of amazing quilting inspiration!

There was a small amount of fabric used this week and no additions to the stash. I spent very little time quilting, but I did finish 12 border blocks for the Tell It to the Stars mystery quilt. These blocks are proving to be much more challenging than I expected. I still need to make 22 more blocks.




Used this week:                             .375 yards
Used year to date:                   115.625 yards


Stashed this week:                        0  yards
Stashed year to date:               101.0 yards 

Net year to date:   
                   14.625 yards used

Scraphappy Saturday 11/8/14

There is very little progress to show on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects today. I have barely touched my sewing machine this week, so no new Rainbow LeMoyne stars yet. I did manage to baste some background hexies and get them sewn to the light blue hexie snowflake that had been made early this year.



Maybe I will have more to show next Saturday. I hope to do some cleaning up in the sewing room today, which should make it easier to be productive in the days ahead.
