No offense to my brown and gray and black scraps, but I won't be using many of them for Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects this month. After giving it some thought, I want to keep my current RSC projects pretty much in the rainbow spectrum of colors. I made a few blocks last week with brown and gold scraps, but will hold off on making a brown or black Carpenter's Wheel block.
Speaking of finished quilts, I finally completed an earlier RSC project. I got bogged down with hand-stitching the binding on this quilt, and it sat next to my Sewing Chair for several months. Thank goodness my motivation returned and I finished everything up this week, including a storage pillowcase.
We've been having intermittent rain showers almost every day this week, so I didn't want to get the quilt wet by going outside for photos. I clothespinned it to the blinds in my breakfast room so I could get some full-scale pictures.
My local longarm quilter, Cindy Braiwick, used a varigated green and turquoise thread for the quilting.
I made the body of the pillowcase with the same fabric as the quilt binding. I shipped this off to its new owner today - I hope it brings her lots of smiles!
I'm linking up with the other Rainbow Scrap Challenge bloggers over at Angela's Soscrappy blog. I know there will be lots of colorful inspiration that will make me want to go digging in my brown and black scraps despite what I said initially!
