Scrap Play and Finishes

     I love playing with scraps, rainbows and bright quilts so I am excited to be participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year. The color for March has been red.  I pulled scraps from my stash plus spent some time cutting units as well as made-fabric play. I put this month’s creations with the past 2 and here are my blocks so far. 

 By the end of the year I should have several beautiful bright small quilts to donate or gift.

    When I am at my home away from home, I frequently piece made-fabric from crumbs.  Last summer I created many green/blue blocks.  I started sewing them into a quilt top and decided I wanted it larger.  Next time I sewed green/blue made-fabric, I did not have the others with me.  When I put them with the first batch, they had much more bright green and not much blue and I felt they did not match.   The next time I paid closer attention and made more.  I have a lap quilt of mostly green made-fabric blocks which I finished a few months back and now the full bed size green/blue quilt is finished.  The design was inspired by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. 

To go with the modern design I used my walking foot and quilted the center using the serpentine utility stitch. I did a FM motif in the border which does not show up well on the large print.

I also finished a couple of pillowcases for our local Ronald McDonald House.  The main fabric was donated by Springfield Fabrics of Fort Mill, SC.

It is still too cold to work in the yard.
Enjoy some time sewing or quilting.
