Scrap Saturday!!!

I am FINALLY going to take today as my Scrap Saturday again!!!! I had to take a few of those off the last month or so to play catch up on a few things before heading back to work next week. I am almost caught up!!!!

As part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this month, I won't be making a quilt, but will be making some smaller projects. I don't have alot of pink fabrics, but after some searching, here is a little tease of what I will be using to make my little project.



I hope to complete it by this evening. Stay tuned!!! This is a little something special for a very very good friend of mine!!! You will know who you are soon enough missus!!! I know you read my blog regularly!! I hope to make a second one for myself!!! I think I will stitch up the second design right now.

Remember my February Red month Rainbow Scrap Challenge strippy quilt??? Well here it is!!!



It is FINALLY going on the machine to be quilted!!! I am free motion quilting this one too. There are 36 blocks to quilt in total. I can only do 6 at a time before my eyes get strained where it is against a white background and the design is a bit detailed.



I have 12 complete already. I will do another 6 this evening.

I also have the teddy bear quilt quilted and the binding is on by machine on one side.



I will slip stitch the other side down by hand later. Binding is good work to do when there is a little 'ankle biter" running around and you can quickly drop it to run after the little man!!!

Well speaking of the little squirt. He is having lots of fun right now playing in my rubber maid containers of scraps and his toys, so I am going to take this time to do a little work down here in my sewing room!!!

Quiltingly Yours

Your two quilts look great. I need to get a couple of mine finished. Can't wait to see what you've got in store for your friend.

I can't believe how much you get done (and such a good job of it) with having a baby to take of. I feel like my quilting time has been affected and I only got a puppy!
