FNSI Report Scrappy Saturday

I don't know why I didn't take any photos at FNSI last night...the night went by way too fast! You will have to take my word for it that lots of projects were tackled. My sister worked on a baby quilt, Barb did some binding and beading, Joanne was getting creative with fleece projects, and I mostly putzed around with a variety of hand stitched projects. 
I started a new stitchery project from Violet and Clover's Garden Steps Quilt Along. Quick and easy blocks...fun!  I hope to have more to show next week on my Slow Sunday Stitching post.I also finished the hand quilting on my Bowls With Borders quilt, which I can post next Saturday. You can check out the other bowls posted today at Sew We Quilt

And now onto the Rainbow Scrap Challenge update
The colour this month is teal/aqua/turquoise
I finally got my palm tree branch block sewn and it used up 14 teal scraps. I love it as much as my first two blocks (purple from June, and blue from July).
You can get the free pattern designed by Kristi, and watch the tutorial(And BTW, Kristi organized a paper piecing blog hop for the month of August, so you can hop over and get some more paper piecing ideas.)
If you don't totally love this block yet, hop over to Terri's blog and see her wonderful blocks  Then hop over to SoScrappy and see what other quilters are sewing with their turquoise scraps.
Phew...after all that hoping around in blogland, it'll be time for a nap!
