Multi Colors & Catching Up

This year has been an extremely busy year.  I have made four prayer quilts since January.  Here is number four and hopefully I will give it tomorrow to a very person.
I finally found the time to do some catching up on the scrappy rainbow colors.  In March the color was red and this month the color is multi colors.
,,

I still need one more purple block.
The rest of April I will be sewing on the Rainbow orange peel blocks.

The other project that needs to be finished is these blocks.
There are seven star blocks and I have them finished.  There are 42 patch blocks and I still need 14 blocks.    The pattern is call Teaberry Stars.

January is Purple


Again this year Angela is hosting  Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017.  Purple is the rainbow color for January.  This challenge is very inspiring seeing all the rainbow projects everyone is making with their scraps.  I have two different blocks I plan to make each month.  I am sure there will be other rainbow blocks as the year goes on.
The first block I am making is orange peels.

These blocks are a Moda Bake Shop pattern called A Ritzy Cracker Quilt.  If you want to take peek at the completed quilt you can see it here.


My plans are to make a quilt for a graduation gift.  Since the color choices for this Teaberry Star quilt is purples and blues.  I have made the purple stars.

Pat Sloan is hosting a winter Solstice block challenge.  These are my blocks for the challenge.  I plan to use them for QOV.

 This is what I am sewing on at the moment.  It will be a prayer quilt for a young father with cancer.  He will be going through treatment most of 2017.

Row Houses

As I am impatiently waiting for the kitchen remodel project to be finished I am sewing on some UFO's.  The ongoing rainbow house blocks needed to be completed.  When I laid out the blocks I still need three more house blocks.
 

This is the start of the Rainbow Row House Quilt 


I did finish the Now and Later quilt into a flimsy.

A Rainbow Finish

I have been busy with a kitchen remodel.  So I haven't had much time for sewing rainbow blocks or any other blocks.  I needed to finish a rainbow quilt.  These stars are made from my 1.5" squares that I sewed into patch blocks.  I had some string blocks that I added to this rainbow quilt.
I hope to finish my Rainbow house blocks soon.

Here are other quilts I have been sewing.


These two are UFO's that were given to Quilts of Compassion



These blocks are from a block swap and it is finally completed.  


This quilt will be a gift for a friend.


This quilt I gave for a charity auction.  The group is raising money to go to Disney World to perform.  They are a dance company.


This is the scrap quilt I am sewing.  The pattern was a freebie from  Quiltmaker Magazine called Now and Later.  The finished size will be 78 1/2 X 82 1/2.

July Finishes

July was a good sewing month for me.  I have had some finishes and a few more rainbow blocks.



Three charity quilts


This quilt is a graduation gift.  It is late but finished and given. 

I have been busy make Beads of Courage bags for Make a Difference Day in October.   People will be given an opportunity to make a difference by adding the strings to the bag.   I have 18 bags ready to have the strings added.  Here are three of them.


Here is the rest of my July Rainbow Blocks.
I am wondering what rainbow color is August.

Rainbow Blocks and More

I have been trying to keep up with the Angela's Scrap Rainbow Challenge color of the month.    These are the most recent blocks I have made for the challenge.
My string basket is even getting smaller but I am sure that won't last long.  I have a couple more string quilts I hope to show you soon.
  I now have lots of star blocks.  I think it is time to see if I have enough for a quilt.

A couple of finished quilts
Both of this quilts will go to a charity.
Even the lily in my pond knows Pink is this momth's rainbow color.

United We Stand
Here is an opportunity for quilter's to do something positive for the Dallas Police Department tragedy.    If you think you would like to make a block please know the blocks need to be in the mail by July 22nd.
My block is going in the mail tomorrow.
Thank you Martelli for caring for others.
