ScrapHappy Saturday - Now in Baby Blue


Welcome to June!  It is a new month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and that means a new color and a fresh start.  Put away the greens for now and switch gears to play with the lighter side of blue.  For me this means baby blues, if you don't have enough for the month, feel free to play with the green blues, as they do not have a segregated month this year.
Notice in the hand dyed inspiration fabric for June, that the aquas and light blues are all mixed in happily.  Speaking of hand dyes.  With a new month comes a new fabric giveaway.  Ready to win this hand dyed fabric pack specially designed by Vicki Welsh over at Field Trips in Fiber?  Just leave a  comment on this post with the one project you would most like to finish this month.  I will be drawing a winner as soon as  I return from a short little vacation.
I'll be enjoying my own shades of blue as found in the Caribbean sea for the next few days, but I'll draw a fabric winner as soon as I return.  Good luck to you all.

I am working on my little monkey blocks now have 85 and hope to do some more this weekend as I will be away from my machine next weekend. Enjoy your break.

I would like to get some light blue hexie flowers stitched together this month. Have a nice trip!

Dasha said...

I finished one of the tops from the RSC14 this week, and I would like to play with one of the other sets of blocks I made last year. I think the Jacobs Ladder blocks are beckoning.

Angie said...

I plan to assemble last year's RSC Sampler blocks into a quilt top this month.

Sally T said...

In my dreams I see myself finishing the assembly of the kitten quilt. But your influence is strong, so I find myself being pulled by the nine patch undertow.

Chantal said...

Blue again? Looks like I am working on lately is blue and that's fine by me as I ♥ blue!! Into the lighter blue I will dig. Enjoy!

I hope to finish the borders on my 12" LeMoyne Stars quilt from the 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Have a fabulous vacation!

This week has been crazy. I haven't had a chance to look for light blues however will have something done next Sat. I've been working on two other quilt projects.

Quiltdivajulie said...

I want to use the light blue scraps for mug rugs, a journal cover, and a scrappy quilt top/back. These scraps have waited long enough!

Kat Scribner said...

It's so hard to pick a project to finish this month ... so many of them are large projects and works in progress. I seem to have a project from 2 years ago, on my mind. The top is mostly paper pieced, and bom from Carol Doak. She called it the Scrap Scramble, because everything except the background, came from the scrap bins. I didnt follow her example precisely, as is my nature. I have a border fabric I think would work, and I have 2 backings to choose from. It hangs in view, reminding me that I want to work on it.

I have a string top together and I'd like to make a string backing and get it quilted. I like working with strings but not storing them so id like to use as many as I can in this quilt. Thanks!

Nell's Quilts said...

Hoping for two finishes this month - the Laura Wasilowski fused project and the leaves on pale blue background which I should probably do first in keeping with the blue colour for June. I might have some fun scraps to play with then.

I have so many UFO's. I am caught up on RSC15 blocks. I am working on a geese in the corner with batiks, Bonnie Hunter Grand Illusion, and a Zelda quilt-a-long from Cora's Quilts(3 months behind).

Sheila said...

I hope to finish my tumbler quilt this month. The colorful tumbler units were cut from scraps during the colorful RSC months in 2013 and stored in a plastic tub. The project became a UFO when the tub was misplaced during 2014. Those tumblers are now a colorful quilt top, ready to quilt.

I would love a queen sized quilt made just in these colors! Beautiful.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I hope to get my sewing room completely reorganized by the end of June.

Magpie Sue said...

The colors of the Caribbean are some of my favorites. I most want to finish my second quilt for Hands2Help. After that, who knows?

Marly said...

I really must get my "Toadstool House" panel made into a bookcover. It's been taking far too long.

sewok said...

I would love to finish my Trail Mix quilt. And I just might this month! Thanks for a chance at a great give away. Phyllis

Kate said...

I suppose I should just go with my son's teacher's mini quilt gift, because I'm going on vacation and that's likely to be my ONLY finish this morth.

Edith said...

Happy to be working in blues. Did you fly away for your vacation? The Caribbean would be a whole lot less expensive from where you are than from here in Western Canada.

Andee said...

I would like to get the hexie eye spy with orange triangles finished this month!

Katy M said...

I would love to finish the darling ranges dress that's been half finished for weeks - I keep getting distracted! x

The Joyful Quilter said...

I would LOVE to finish my Challenged Quilt (just to get it out of the way WELL before the deadline) and winning some of Vicki's amazing fabric would be the "icing on the cake"!

shellyrhds said...

The one project I would like to finish this month is choosing quilt patterns for my nieces and nephews so I can finally give them that personalized gift I've been wanting to give them at Christmas time! I don't think I will get all 8 done, but even 2 would be a start.

katie z. said...

I have a blue, brown, and black bricks quilt I'd like to tackle. I narrowed my goals this month since everyone is home, and I'd like to see this project off the list!

Heather said...

Ooooo....now those are pretty colors! This month I'm going to try to finish one of my Quilt Away projects, Ring Around the Hexies.

Nann said...

I made the block for June last week...but want to get it posted for the record!

Cathy said...

My number one project to finish this month is the quilt I am making for my husband. I basted it today and will begin quilting tomorrow. With any luck, I'm finish it in a few days and move on to finish a couple other "must do" projects...

Quilter Kathy said...

Beautiful fabrics... thanks to Vicki for sponsoring our scrappy fun!
I hope to finish my scrappy braids this month.

Kate said...

Beautiful blues!
