A Finish and a Start

Somehow this month does not seem fair. I feel like I’m losing out on a Saturday for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

However, I’m happy to say that I did complete my One Monthly Goal already. I started the month with two charm packs of black and white prints, some including bright colors. After deciding to make a row quilt, I added some lovely solids to go with them. This was the first row that I finished early in the month.

I linked this up with the One Monthly Goal start at Elm Street Quilts.

The finish has been done in time to show my goal was met.

Meanwhile I’ve been working very very slowly on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. For my second block this month I’ve only been able to pull some batik red charms together.

I can almost start drooling over these luscious prints. Not only are the cherries there, but I can almost taste strawberries and raspberries. With all the terrible freezing cold we’ve had, anything to remind me of summer really helps.

These charms will be part of a rainbow batik quilt I’ll be making for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year. You will get to see these red blocks next week.

I hope you have all had a fun and productive month with your scraps.

  1. Hi Paula, I found you here at your new blog address.
    Your work is looking good, nice colors with black to set them off and yes, the red batiks are delicious!
    And you’re meeting your goals.

    1. I’m so glad you’re a part of the endeavors now. I’m getting to work on my challenge bit by bit this week. I can’t wait to see what everyone else has done with texture. I’ll look forward to your finish.

    1. Thanks, Marti. I’m still learning a lot about WordPress. Sometimes I find myself stuck on the screen that I don’t want and have the full around to try to get where I’m going. But doing my blogs works well now. I can go back and edit something after it’s already been published. So we all move on, as long as we can quilt.
