Sunday Wrap Up

I've been adding blocks to the log cabin quilt.  
The pink bulls-eye blocks are also up on the wall.   As each of the colors is done, I free up those strips to make their way into the log cabin blocks.  

 During the evenings I have been diligently hand stitching at binding.  Thursday during the live stream of the awards ceremony for science fair, I put the last stitch into "Squared Away".  This was the Rainbow Scrap Challenge project from 2018.  It was a collaboration project with Mari, The Academic Quilter.   Directions are still available here and here.   
I put some orange peels into the  cornerstones and ribbon candy in the lattice strips.  The blocks themselves just got a smallish meander.   Is going straight into the wash with some color catchers now.   There was a bit of bleeding going on with the reds.   Hopefully I can clean that up. 
After getting back from science fair, Sydney had prom on Friday and grad bash on Saturday.  The seniors all get bused to Universal after close and ride all the rides until the wee hours.  I had to pick her up at school at 3:30 am.  She was one tired kid!
I am linking up today at Oh Scrap!  and Slow Stitching Sunday.

You have had a busy week in the sewing room! I love that Universal offers that to the graduates - the 8th graders are heading there in May for their after hours fun. Congrats to both of the girls on their accomplishments.

I really love your Squared Away! That checkerboard border is just great. Senior year is never a dull moment, for kids and parents!

Your daughter looks lovely. It sounds as if her prom was a lot of fun. As for all your blocks on the design wall; they all look fabulous. The log cabin quilt is looking amazing; as do those pin bulls-eye blocks. Gosh, Squared Away is a beauty. It is a most wonderful finish!

Your log cabin continues to be more beautiful with each block addition. Best wishes with the bleeding fabrics. One would think with all the technological advances we have in clothing that fabric manufacturers could make their products colorfast too!

I really like your log cabin project. Freeing up the strips after RSC use is genius. What size are the blocks? What a wonderful way to finish up prom weekend. I'd have to sleep for a week after all that excitement! Ha!

I love all the colors in the Squared Away quilt. Too bad about the need for a color catcher.
Your daughter is lovely. Love the pic of the kids having fun.
I look forward to every Saturday to check out all of the posted work. Thanks.
