I've been off in Florida, sharing some holiday happiness with my mom & sisters. It was great to see everyone and enjoy a bit of sunny Florida weather. They even indulged me and let me poke around a quilt shop while we toured old downtown Winter Garden!
I've returned home to more typical gloomy & chilly December weather. We're at our camp, but I've got a couple of sewing projects here, so I can blissfully ignore the weather.
Before leaving for Florida, I was able to complete the free-form scrappy border for the 9 patch and snowball Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt. The 9 patch blocks were made for the 2012 RSC, and I made the scrappy snowball blocks during 2013. I just need to stitch the scrappy border to the quilt and add another white outer border and the top will be complete.
I didn't want to do a year in review blog post, but I thought it would be fun to make a collage of all the Rainbow Scrap Challenge houses I made this past year. I enjoyed looking back at the scrappy fabric and New Orleans houses that inspired all these blocks. I hope 2014 provides the inspiration to assemble them all into a quilt!
I hope everyone has a festive and safe New Year's Eve and I look forward to sharing more sewing and quilting fun with everyone in the coming year!
