ScrapHappy Saturday - Baby Blues

I know that blue has already been a color.  We even did a month for blue/greens.  But my blue drawer is STILL overflowing.  So this month we are going to work on whittling down the lighter shades.  Having some light and brights will add sparkle and contrast to the finished quilt.
Because it is the first Saturday of a new month, we will also have a drawing for a lovely bundle of hand-dyed fabric made specially by Vicki Welsh.  To enter the drawing, just leave the name of the one quilt you plan to finish between now and the end of the year.  I will announce the winner next Saturday.

I will be finishing the hand binding on the rescued scrappy double wedding ring quilt AND I'll be finished the rescued vintage nine patch quilt.

Oh, and I'll be working with golds most of the month (that was the color most absent when I had all my blocks out last month). I may try to sneak in a few baby blues - but it will depend on time available.

I have a few I hope to finish, but the most important in the quilt for my son's bunk bed. We could have used it last night, when the temps in the house dropped 5+ degrees.

My MAIN focus through the end of the year is finishing memory quilts made with my dad's shirts. I have two tops to finishing piecing and one quilt that needs binding.

I have a LOT of blue scraps and scrappy pieces of blue in my stash. But I try to do a lot of guy friendly quilts and use a lot of blue.
I want to finish my 6.5" rainbow sampler quilt before Christmas : )

I read once that the most popular color for fabrics is blue–it's no wonder your blue scraps are overflowing ... I know mine is, too and suspect we aren't the only ones ...

I need to finish a baby quilt for my niece. The baby is due in January, but we will be seeing niece & her husband at Thanksgiving, so I would like to give it to them then.

I have made kitten preserves so they will keep and I'm under no pressure to finish that quilt. So I'm going to finish the mice quilt first to make sure they don't get any bigger.

I want to finish my Stars over Mitford quilt. However I have a number more I need to do too.

Mystic Quilter said...

Well my planned quilt for a finish is a toss up between
my Scrappy Bargello and Cotton Candy. As I have a few gifts to make for Christmas I shall finish up whichever quilt will take the least time!

Between now and the end of the year...hhmmm....I would love to complete my Charming Stars quilt with the sewalong. I'm not sure when she has it set to finish.
I also need to finish the Goodnight Irene from her previous sewalong.
I also have a scrappy rectangle quilt that someone is interested in maybe buying if I will only finish it.
