WIP Wednesday 5.10.17

Is it summer vacation yet?  Fourteen more school days!  Whoop whoop!  But here's what happened this week in my quilting world...

I finished my Scrappy Stars quilt made with almost all multi-colored fabrics.

I used some green scraps to make blocks for the RSC17.

My Homestead Harvest (pattern by Kim Diehl) quilt made it to the flimsy stage.


I showed off my H2H charity quilt that I called My Heart Skips a Beat again!

I dug out this old RSC (Rainbow Scrap Challenge) WIP and decided to make two green blocks to finish if off.

I finally started posting quilts in the Instagram world for the #100blocks100days2017 challenge.
It started May 7th at Gnome Angel.  Here's the four this week:

I completed block 20 of 25 of the Pat Sloan Solstice Challenge.
I need to get my thinking cap on and figure out if I will compete in a local contest.  Sorry to post this here, but I need to make sure I have a copy of it somewhere...  I usually don't lose things on my blog.  I'm thinking it's "just" a mini quilt.  I need something green for my table in March.  It's GREEN month for the RSC, and I can't go wrong with churn dashes...  I may have a plan.
I made and mailed a few blocks for a block drive that Cynthia is having over at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.  You can find the instructions for this cool string block on Cynthia's blog here.

Here's THREE blocks in orange...  I just love the idea of incorporating the sashing into the block.
WHEW.  No wonder why I'm tired this week.  (But oh so happy!)
