Scraphappy Saturday in Lime Green

This has been a week of bouncing around from one quilting project to another, a little bit of this, then a little bit of that. It's the usual case of short attention span quilting. I just can't seem to settle down and work steadily on any single project.

One of my projects is the appliqued circles that I have been making for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. All the blocks are made, and I have started joining them together. I got carried away one evening and wasn't being as careful as I should to make sure I was getting my corners matched up. I might go back and make some small corrections before I continue. So far there are three groups of blocks that have been joined together that run from top left to lower right in the photo. The two big triangle areas still need to have the blocks stitched together.




Last weekend I took a Hexie Bootcamp class at a local quilt shop. Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile might wonder why I would take a class since you know that I started making a hexie quilt for the RSC in 2013-14. My hexie efforts up til now have been self taught, mostly from reading blogs and watching some videos. I enjoyed the face-to-face time in class and got some tips for joining my hexie stars and snowflakes together. Here is my planned layout for the  center of the quilt, but I still need to decide about the outer edges.

I have been playing with some ideas for next year's RSC project, but haven't settled on anything yet. There are too many fantastic rainbow quilt ideas out there--it's impossible to choose just one or two!

Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge every Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday.

  2. The circle quilt is really coming together. It's looking spectacular. I'd forgotten about your hexie stars and snowflakes. I really like the setting you are planning. I'm stuck on what to start for next year's RSC, too. I may have to start more than one.

  4. I can't wait to see that circles quilt all done - it's so gorgeous!
    That hexie layout looks great! When I was growing up, the only hexie quilts I ever saw were Grandmother's Flower Gardens, which never really interested me. Now people are doing such fabulous things with hexies!

  9. Narrowing down the choices for next year is not easy, but at least you have some time to ponder your options while you finish off the projects for this year.

  10. Great progress and all the colors look fine. The snowflake pattern is so delicate, a nice change from flower gardens. I would love to see it done. Keep up the good work!
