I am going to be happy to finish up the orange today! Somewhere I have another ScrapHappy block all cut out and ready to go. I even bought some potential sashing fabric. White is usually my favorite choice, but it won't work in this case, so I got some black with rainbow dots and stars last week. I've also seen lots of pretty modern quilts with a steel gray background, maybe that would work here as well? What are you working on during the last weekend before Halloween?

Today was a day of odds and ends. With Kurt back in town after being gone most of the week, I enjoyed getting out and about without kids for a bit. The rest of the family went to Art of Sand while I took a trip to get border fabric, a new pillow and some odds and ends for the kids Halloween costumes. The kids were in and out all afternoon with friends from the neighborhood and then we had a cake after dinner to celebrate Kurt's birthday. For now I'll take a look at lesson plans for the week and settle in for an early night.

I finished up my rainbow of crumb blocks this weekend! Most of them have been made along the way during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Now I just have to decide how to put them together.
So what do you think, Option 1 or Option 2?

Lilac Potpourri earlier this year and had some leftover. Then there were blue blocks leftover from the beginning of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The red and orange are new today. I still need another yellow though, and I have some pink blocks in the works. I can't decide if I'm going to add the multi-color blocks in as a border with the stars for the corners. I think I might just want to keep it simple. I'm sure I could find another spot for the rainbow blocks. So glad I got a chance to sew today. Next week looks fully booked so I'll savor the rest of the evening before putting it all away for now.
There are 5 Saturdays in October leaving plenty of time to work on orange scraps. I didn't have much time to sew this week, but plan to try to find some time today so that I can devote tomorrow to school work. What are you up today?

Midget Block number 50 which is called Autograph.
The first quarter of the school year ends tomorrow and I've been busy getting all the odds and ends finished up. I enjoy the flow of the school year with its built in deadlines to keep things moving along. I'm a very good procrastinator and having starting and ending dates is a good way to make sure that things keep getting crossed off the to do list.

It is a wet and rainy weekend, the kind that would be perfect for holing up in the sewing room and whiling away the day. I'm not sure what we'll do with our company, but I'm guessing that we won't be out and about too much today. I saw the cutest pattern for a paper pieced candy corn block at Stash Manicure a few days ago.that I think I would play with if I were sewing. It would make a nice little mug run. I'm not sure paper piecing is really necessary, I think free form and wonky would be really cute as well. Instead I've pulled out some hand quilting so that I can be sociable.

string/crumb quilt, I was inspired to pull out some of the rainbow blocks that have been accumulating this year. I'll need to get everything tidied up this week for company next weekend, but I think I might have a string piecing marathon very soon. Strings go nicely with crumbs of course and they both end up making quite a bit of mess which is not the best of ideas when the in-laws are on the way.

I was so happy to have finished off RRCB that I felt inspired to start a new quilt. This is Jamestown Landing, but in green instead of blue. It has quite a few pieces but once it is cut out I think I will work on it between other projects.
Kurt spent yesterday detailing his new car. After that he was volunteered to drive the kids on all of their weekend errands so that they could all have turns getting rides.
