Scrappy Saturday and FNSI Update



Rainbow Scrap Challenge update:

I am making great progress this month on my Omigosh blocks. I have 28 double nine patches done, and I think it needs a total of 110, so only 82 more to go! Here are the 4 teal/aqua blocks I made this month. 




I also finished up a blue double 9 patch from January and 5 pink blocks from February. So everything I had cut for this project so far is sewn into blocks this month...woohoo!
Angela... I need to add some purple, orange and/or green blocks, so maybe those colours could be on the wish list for upcoming months?! No pressure! LOL
To see what other quilters are sewing with their aqua scraps, visit SoScrappy.

Friday Night Sew In Report:
One of the sewers came down with a bad ankle or something, and couldn't come last night (rumour has it that she was either in a fight at work and kicked someone, or she slipped on the ice?) 
Wine was bought to match the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour of aqua, and I worked on machine quilting blocks for my UFO this month. 


I think this is one of my favorite blocks so far. I think the quilting makes the blocks look like tilted crowns. It is fun to quilt each block differently using the same shapes.



This is a quilt top that Sandy was hoping to make progress on at FNSI. "Isn't it awesome?!? It is from the book Small blocks Stunning Quilts". 
Also, my sister's pretty Christmas quilt is on the design wall behind the quilt.
PS - the other quilt holder will remain anonymous because she really needs a hair cut! Just sayin'!

  1. What fun it must be to get together with some other quilters on a Friday night (or any night, for that matter).

    Your OMG quilt is coming right along! I love Nine Patch quilts, so maybe I should add an OMG quilt to my list. ;-)

    That looks like a Disappearing Four Patch that Sandy is holding ... it's gorgeous!

  2. Looks like you made great progress at FNSI. Love your baby double nines! So cute. Two of your necessary colors will be coming up very soon. I'll leave you to guess which one will wait for fall.

  3. I love your little "tilted crowns" and the argyle fabric fits the bill perfectly. I also like the Two Oceans but that's another story LOL. Sandy made a stunning quilt. Just awesome! Can't wait to see how you will set up your double 9patch block. That OMG quilt tickles my curiousity.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Looks like lots was accomplished at FNSI. It is fun getting together to sew or just sit and chat about quilting and what we want or wish to do!!

  6. Looks like a fun night had by all. I dipped into the Moscato wine last night with dinner - my new favorite. Thanks for getting Angela to hint at the upcoming colors - I'm guessing purple and green soon and orange in the fall =) May be wrong but a good guess I think.
    The quilting on those tilted crowns is great.

  10. After making those little 9 patch blocks for the RSC sampler quilt, I greatly admire your patience in finishing up your Omigosh blocks. They look great, as does the quilting on your UFO project.

  11. I agree with you about purple and green (and even orange) being on the RSC wish list . . .

  13. It is amazing how different a block looks after quilting... Love the "crowns".
    It is your OMG quilt that has me blown away. I thought they have to be small, and then I followed your link and found out that they aren't small... they are TINY! I like to work small, too, so the 8" blocks I'm working on are quite big for me... but 4.5" is my small... I can't even conceive of a finished block of 1.5". You are amazing!
    Love your sister's quilt, too. Now those are small blocks.
    Hugs

  14. Ooo--those teal blocks are SO pretty!
    That last quilt is amazing. I would have to make that as a leader/ender over a period of years and not really stop and count "how many more" I had to make, or I would give up!

  16. The Omigosh blocks look wonderful! I like the "tilted crowns", too! I was stitching with y'all in spirit last night; had the house to myself and worked on my modern teal blocks. Love that you were able to find "matching" wine!
