Pink Scrappy Saturday

Happy New Year everyone. Today is the first Saturday of the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge for 2013 over at Soscrappy. I am jumping in and doing the Rainbow Scrap Challenge again this year. I just love it. This month our first colour to work with is PINK. I got my scraps sorted well last year and I have to keep on top of it again this year.

This past week I just spent a little time cutting and preparing kits for some Pink spools (to the left) then I have a block in mind that needs 2" squares and Triangle so the stacks on the right are sorted out with that in mind. So far I have not sewn any patches yet.

I have been very busy this week. We cleaned many parts of the house and took bottles back, a load to good will and a load to the dump today. We still have more to get out of the house. I also have been machine quilting my entry for the Canadian National Juried Show. A photo and entry is due very soon. I hope to be done the machine quilting on Sunday and start the binding by Monday and be ready to take photos by Thursday at the latest. Sorry I can not show you.

I have also been working on the Easy Street Mystery with Bonnie Hunter. I just had to do it. I love the colours that she was using this year. Here are my piles of yardage.

And here is the box with all my units done. I got this far by New Years Eve and was able to sew a little more. There is a link on Monday to show off how far we all got. I will have some blocks done to show off.


  1. Can't wait to see what you're working on for the juried show!
    Love the piles of fabric all ready and waiting for you!

    1. I am planning to go to Quilt BC and the National Juried Show in person this year so I thought I better send a quilt too. I have to get my butt in gear and get it done.

  2. Great looking Pinks, Love the Bonnie hunter mystery. I saved the clues and haven't started yet.

  3. Congratulations on entering the juried show. Your stack of pink scraps looks great. Mine was so similar yesterday it makes me smile. Have fun turning it all into fun blocks.

  4. You have so many creative ideas - I can't wait to see what you make this year. Good luck with the quilt show!

  5. I always enjoy seeing the wonderful things you create. Looking forward to a fun year of scrappy goodness!

  6. Your pink scraps are so well organized! Sew ready. Mine pink scraps are thrown into a large box lid.
    I look forward to watching you piece your pink squares and rectangles. Your Easy Street quilt top, too!
    Love all your fabrics!

  7. I'm always surprised at how much can come out of scrap piles. My pinks just keep going!

  8. Lots of pretty pinks--I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with them. Spools, I like that idea.

  9. What a great selection of organized pink scraps and your Easy Street is looking fabulous, too.

  10. Prep work is the key. Looking forward to seeing what they turn into.
