Productive 1 1/2 Hour

While William slept for a nice 1 1/2 hours today, I got busy taking out all the green scrap fabrics I could find for March month "green" theme with The Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

I found a great quilt in the new scrap quilting book I got this past Christmas.

This scrap quilt will also be donated to the Iris Kirby House. I have alot of rectangles and squares to cut out for this little darling quilt!! This is also a bit bigger than my last two lap quilts.

Here are the fabrics and pattern I will be using for this quilt.

Last night I managed to get the red strippy quilt layered and ready for quilting.

I got alot accomplished during William's nap. I also manage to tidy up and reorganize some of my sewing room as well as put away all the remaining red scraps I had out from last month.

He is now up again. He had a nice lunch of scrambled egg yolks, peeled and sliced green grapes and one of his mini pumpkin muffins. I am soooo happy he has such a great appetite!!!!

This afternoon when Trevor comes home from having lunch with a buddy of his, he will watch over bambino while I get to play in my sewing room again! I plan to press out all the green fabrics and have them ready for cutting. I want it all ready for Saturday Scrap Day!!!

I noticed I also haven't shared a new recipe here in a while. I will have to post one very soon!!!

Quiltingly Yours

Andrea, I love that quilt in the book you are looking at. One of my goals is to really get moving forward on some sort of scrap quilt. I have to get a hold of my scraps. They are swallowing me up. Good for you for moving forward. Your red and white quilt is just great. That color combo works every time, doesn't it?

So glad you were able to be so productive with the little time you had, I have that book also, and I love quite a few patterns in there!

That quilt is going to look great in the green fabrics. Just wait until your little boy becomes a teenager than you won't be so glad he has such a big appetite.lol I wondered where my boys put it all.

I like the new pattern you have chosen for the green fabrics! I noticed you are using the golden threads paper for your quilting designs. I like that method too. I like how your red and white quilt is almost finished. You are a very efficient worker!
