I'm always so inspired by Cynthia who blogs at: Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework. I visit her Scrap Palooza Quilt Gallery often and am motivated weekly by her Oh Scrap! Linky. So imagine my surprise when SHE asked if I'd highlight some of my scrappy projects!! Whoot! Woo! You bet! Thank you Cynthia! So I started 2015 with no "real" quilting goals, yet it is beginning to look like this is going to be my year to get some rainbow scrappy quilts done! Yep! Upon creating this post, I realize I have three very bright WIP that I plan to use Cynthia's weekly linky to motivate me to get them done!
Project #1: My Rainbow Hexagons!
About a year ago I emptied these cute buckets of scrappy stripes and turned them into...
...this rainbow of hexagons! They are back on the design wall.
I'm busy "auditioning" what color I'll put them together with??
(I don't like the white.) Any suggestions?
|I also have a set of red that aren't on the design wall...yet.|
Project #2: My Rainbow Neighborhood!
I started these scrappy dolls and houses for my RSC13 challenge last year. I can not tell you how much fun I had each month digging through my scrap boxes and putting them together "free style". They too are back on the design wall. I plan to fill in the gaps and get them sewn together all wonky like this. I'm then going to add some appliqued flowers, trees and who knows what else to create a fun little neighborhood! (I think I need to add a Jackson next to one of the houses too!! LOL!) Oh I can't wait to get back to these. I just really enjoy adding scraps of ribbon, rik-rac, buttons and lace and well, pretty much anything else laying around the sewing room to these!
Project #3: "Made Fabric" Pinwheels
And finally....there's my most current scrappy project which will be coming off the long-arm tomorrow and be highlighted as my Friday Finish this coming week:
|If you are new to my blog this week, THAT is Jackson in the picture! My Jack Russell buddy!|
Oh! I had so much fun dumping my bin of scraps back in February and creating that "made fabric"you see in the pinwheels above! Have you ever done that? It's so liberating to just dump your box of scraps and go for it!
It's easy to say, my rainbow stash of scraps is depleted after creating these three quilt tops. Now it's time to get them done! I can't wait to get back to them and look forward to sharing my progress and finishes each week at Cynthia's Oh Scrap! Sunday Linky!! Thanks for stopping by and seeing my rainbow of scrappy WIP! I hope if you are new to blog from Cynthia's, that you'll hang around and make yourself a follower! I'd love to get to know ya!
