Rainbow Challenge, Wins, and Winner


This month was Aqua/Teal for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Now I know I had to really dig last year and this year I thought I had more - NO.  So my aqua and teal fabrics range from a green to blue and inbetween.


I had some more true aqua left over from the Birds & Berries used in last years sampler BOM - yes, I am desperate to use up that greenie one.


Yep, even dug into my scrap binding drawer for a few more.


And really scraped when it came to the string block.  What tiny bit was left was cut into my pre-cut barrels.

I will be linking up with SoScrappy

  
I am on a fabric diet, but I was lucky to win a lovely jelly roll of La Belle Fleur from Kris at Lavendar Quilts for her blogaversary.  And the jelly roll and charm pack of Bloomin' Fresh was from Deb Strain won during Moda's Alphabet Hop.

 I would like to thank all the ladies who entered February's "Let's Book It" challenge.  You can go back and see all the lovely projects linked up HERE.  Maybe someone used a book you have on your shelf.

Our winner is #5 - Val Spiers

I will be sending off an e-mail to her for mailing info.

Everyone have a pleasant weekend - Spring has to be around the corner as I think Moe has lost 10# chasing all the big fat Robins in the yard.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. I love your blocks and choice of fabrics. I especially like the blocks in the third picture. What is the name of that block?
    And your winners, such yummy fabrics!

  3. Congratulations! Lucky you!
    You did good with your teal scavenger hunt. I'm not sure I have any real teal or aqua. It's possible that I'm using turquoise.
    We're recovering from an ice storm here. But expecting some spring weather this weekend : )

  4. They look great, I think green to blue is exactly right, otherwise it would be boring

  5. Your blocks look great. I am concentrating on working on my fabric diet too. I have so many strings and need to use them first.

  6. Such great variety of fabrics in your blocks. Way to dig into the bins. You inspired me to pull out the Civil War book you showed last week. I just may have to make a little T block at the end of that book this month. Thanks for the reminder to check the books in the quilting library for inspiration.
