Anna is home from college this week and we have a family wedding coming up in North Carolina.  The hurricane was far away from our side of the state and we never saw more than a windy day out of it. It is horrible to see the devastation that it has caused.

ScrapHappy Saturday



I love new months.  New Colors are so much fun.  This is the last official month of the Squared Away Sampler blocks.  Mari has directions posted for the last block and I'll be back soon with PDF files to share and save.  I'll have options for finishing off your blocks soon.  I set mine straight with two-inch lattice strips and bright cornerstones.  It will be fun to see how other people want to finish theirs.

New Month and New Color

A new month is always an exciting time here at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  It means time to roll out a new color.  For October it is going to be dark and sage green.  We will have the last squared away block on Saturday which will leave us all plenty of time to finish up the quilts before the end of the year.
