Rainbow Scrap Challenges - Bits and Pieces

I haven't been keeping up with the RSC the past few months, illnesses of family members and such, but I have been using some of my RSC blocks from last year.  If you look, the top left block is one of my Kaleidoscope blocks, and the bottom middle is some of my 9 patches.  I needed some quilts quickly, so I used them along with my OKCMQG blocks also from last year.  

I needed a quilt for a niece, and again, I turned to the RSC and framed and sashed some of the 16 patches for a relatively quick quilt. 

And another quick quilt needed and again to the RSC.  This one was from the 2 1/2 inch strips that I had left from each color intending to do the Jelly Roll Race type quilt.  This one was done that way, but then I decided to make it into sort of a rail fence.   I needed 9 quilts in a short time, so I improvised.  I used these, also a coin style quilt that I had made the top as a spare man type quilt, then decided to use it for a tablecloth, so finished it and used it under plastic as a tablecloth for a few months.  Now, it has a label and is for a young boy.  I also used one of my Celtic Solstice quilts that weren't very successful, but hopefully the young lady that it's going to will like it.  She doesn't know that it was supposed to look differently than it turned out.  The coin and CS are here.   
Thankfully, I had the RSC to draw from and was able to complete the quilts I needed in the time frame that I was aiming for.

Catching up Kaleidoscope Blocks for RSC and Mistake

Since I got the urge to do kaleidoscope blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I had to catch up January pink and February purple.  So far so good.

Then as I was sewing on the last strip in the stripset I realized that the stupid that seems to have overtaken me since DH came home had struck again.  This doesn't look like purple.  Oh well, I'll have it done when we get to blue. 

Here is my required purple.
Each time I've done the strip sets I've had some extras, so here is bonus block number one.
And bonus block number two.  I''m sure that by the end I will have had all manor of strange blocks.

And here are the first 3 months, plus blue in advance and my two bonus blocks.   Quite colorful if I do say. 

And March's contribution to my Jelly Roll quilt which will be put together at the end unless I decide to start doing my long long strip before that, I just may.

The orange nine patches were a mistake when I was making the snowball and nine patches for the RSC.
having some type of mental illness which doesn't allow me to let well enough alone I had to back track on these also and do the January pink and February purples.  I hope that I don't make anymore mistakes, I think I'm getting out of hand.
I was just thinking I'll probably use this post in the next Saturday link-up for RSC and if you'd like to see the other orange that I did between last Saturday and next Saturday, go here.
And if you'd like to see what others have been doing with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge that Angela provides for us, go here.
Meanwhile, I did the last 8 of my 49  Throwing up Scraps (Scrap Vomit) blocks and I'm in process of preparing borders.  I have 100 4 patches to do and then I'll attach them and see how the finished flimsy fits on my queen sized bed.

BOM's and DH

I didn't sew at all for almost a month, as DH went in the hospital for an ablation and ended up with open heart surgery.  After two weeks he was sent home and went back in after about three days, long story, but he spent a few more days in ICU and then a few in the regular room and this time released to rehab for an approximate one to four week stay.  I stayed with him almost 24 hours a day when he was in the hospital, but now that he is in rehab I stay with him about 12 hours a day, over night actually.  In the hospital he had a private room and there was a recliner and a love seat, in the rehab, only a straight chair and a roommate.  I stay over night, but can't sleep well there, so go home to rest.  Since I can't always rest, I have sewn.  I tried to catch up on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge first and here were my first blocks. 

Next, I did the 16 patches.

Then on to what will be either a Rainbow Scrap Bargello or a Rainbow Scrappy Trip Around the World from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville. 

The leftover 2 1/2 inch strips will become a Rainbow Strippie Jelly Roll Race style quilt at the end.

Here's a wrap up of February's purple RSC.   Top left, possible bargello, top right, 16 patches, bottom left possible trip around the world, middle right strippie, and bottom right snowballs and nine patches.  If you want to enjoy lots of purples and maybe some pinks, go to Angela's blog, Soscrappy here.

Here is the lesson four block from the Craftsy Re-piecing the past, Civil War Blocks Then and Now class.  I didn't read the directions very well and had to do this one twice.   My blocks aren't as crooked as they seem, my design flannel is over a louvered door, and it is wavy.   My colors for this one are blue, gold, green and red.   I'm a bit color challenged, so each quilt is a big ? mark.

Another Craftsy class, this is the February lesson from the Craftsy BOM 2013.   Brown, cheddar, green and purple for this one.   I can only hope.

These two are the February blocks from the Craftsy BOM 2012.  I've made them before, but this time I'm adding them to the Sugar Block Club blocks for a queen sized quilt.  Again, they are square, but don't look it due to the wavy flannel.  Pink, gray, red and blue for this one.  I still have the Sugar Block Club and my OKC Modern Quilter's Guild block to do and then I'll be caught up on my BOM's.   Hope next month is better, but when DH comes home I guess I could be busier as it's hard to know how independent he will be.   Good news for my little town in Central Florida.  We had a Hobby Lobby open this week so now I'll have my local quilt shop, Walmart and Hobby Lobby within 15 minutes.  I know how fortunate that I am.

More Pink Rainbow Scrap Challenge

This is getting scary, I can't seem to stop.  I saw Edith's post here at Inch by Inch Quilting and then I had to make a  ‘Scrappy Trip Along’, too.

It occurred to me that the left overs from the strips would make a very interesting Jelly Roll Race quilt.  I'm saving them for it.

Or maybe my blocks will be a scrappy Bargello.

I was going to do these next week, but my husband was sleeping this afternoon so I decided to go ahead and make them today.  I'm sure that this will be my final effort this month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013.  Now it's off to the 2 Civil War blocks and working on my Easy Street and Scrap Vomit.
