The Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler from 2014 is next on the frame. I know just how I want to quilt it, so it gets to go before the quilt from this year. I have officially taken over almost every room in the house. The quilting frame is taking up the formal living room. Three quilts are still draped over the dining room table. I have Hawaii Sunset on the Family Room floor next to the Dear Jane that I have been finishing up near the coffee table where I spread out the new Rainbow Scrap Challenge fabrics for 2016. The study and laundry room have been mine for years. My husband is such a patient man. Honestly, he is out having a beer with a friend from work in preparation for his last day of work. Did I mention that he got a new job? Friday will be his last day at the old job, but he won't start the new one until after the holidays. It will be nice for him to have some time to putter around the house. Maybe I should pick up some of these quilts so that he doesn't trip over them?
Just two more days of exams left. I was working on finalizing the designs for the column along quilt while my kids were finishing their test today. I just need to decide on a background fabric and I will be all set to start sewing. My knee jerk reaction is always to go with a white or cream, but it would be so much fun to branch out this year. I am trying to minimize the background fabric as much as possible, but I am sure there will need to be some other fabrics mixed in now and again. Contrast is a necessary part of block design after all.
