Gosh, I have gotten behind on the Rainbow QAL. I did do this mini quilt from 'Simply Charming-Minis' and it will be used for my quilt guild challenge - due Sept. But Sheila over at Sew, Cook and Travel always is right there every Saturday (well Friday night) and makes me kick myself. I haven't touched my machine all day, sooooooo.......
I have to admit, I have a box full of HSTs and I can raid my pre-cut barrels - I have a lot of red. So my large 16.5" star block went together really quickly - I have all my white background cut for each star for the year, so that helped too.
Yep, more HSTs used up and that size barrel pulled, the 2.5" lites I have a box full of so quick placement. And I had the green strips for the stems from the scrap basket currently on the table. Whiz-Zing - I feel so much better. I may have to make another red leaf as I always add a bit of whimsy in one of the blocks - these don't have that.
I will link up with SoScrappy for RSC13
Today is the last day to link up for Pets on Quilts - cats, dogs, other pets, EQ design or animal quilt - I know I have seen so many of these thru blogland.
You can find the linky HERE at LilyPad Quilting. Voting will take place next week - 18th-24th.
And the linky is open HERE at SwimBikeQuilt - there are several quilts posted already. The link will be open until Sept 30, so you still have time to make and donate a quilt. If you already have your quilt(s) done, you don't have to wait until Sept, link up now while fresh on your mind.
I will be away for the day, but will reply to any comments once I get home.
