It is green month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, which is a perfect colour to work with in the spring.
I am cutting and sewing my green Mad City block and there are green scraps spread all over the place. I was hoping it would be finished by today, but it has been too hot to sew this week. I must get the AC unit put in the window to make it bearable to sew in there from now until September. To see more green scrap projects, hop over to the scrappy link up.
As has been my tradition for many years, today I attended the Mennonite Relief Committee's Quilt Auction. It's their 50th year trying to raise money to help those suffering from poverty, conflict, oppression and natural disasters. I have always appreciated that 100% of the proceeds of this fundraiser go directly to their work. Many people work together to raise the money by making and donating amazing quilts, food, plants and by sponsoring other activities of the day. You can read more about the quilt auction here. I didn't have a quilt in this year's auction since my sewing group didn't get it finished before the submission deadline, but it will be in next year's for sure!
But here's an auction quilt that I know the rainbow scrap challenge quilters will like. It's called The Crayon Quilt, designed by Emily Herrick of Crazy Old Ladies (pattern can be purchased here). It was made by a group of scrap quilters called "The Caring Connection" and was sold for $500! It would be such a fun Rainbow Scrap project quilt.
