|OOps, I didn't look at the instructions and I turned a diamond into an X.|
|March Sugar Block Club was more fancy making than it is fancy looking.|
|This one is wrong too, but it was on purpose. It was supposed to be a star, but I turned it into a cross or X to be consistent.|

|I think SoScrappy has created a monster. I seem to be like eating Lay's potato chips, I can't stop at just one Rainbow Scrap Quilt. Today I ran across Don't Call Me Betsy's QAL from 2011, "Kaleidoscope", and I was so tempted, and then I thought, I was tempted before by Elaine Adairs beautiful Kaleidoscope quilts, so I kind of mixed them together. I didn't have Elaine's big ruler, so I used Elizabeth's (she said don't call her Betsy) dimensions, and Elaine's strips. I only got enough for 7 cuts from my strip set so I had to do two strip sets for one block. I know I'll get better at these. Bad news, I have to go back and make a pink one and a purple one for January and February's colors.|
|Here's what my orange will be like if I decide on the Rainbow Bargello.|
|And if I decide on the Rainbow Scrappy Trip Along.|
|Next month, when I have 4 colors I'll see how the Rainbow Scrappy trip along would look, but I couldn't resist seeing what the scrappy Bargello might look like. Tomorrow (Tuesday), we start the process to get DH out of rehab. We are having the home assessment at 11:00 and the meeting with the social worker at 3:30. Shouldn't be long now. |
For more RSC 2013 visit Angela here.
PS Update DH came home yesterday (Friday). We are adjusting and doing fine.

|I thought I'd start off with a table topper this month, I'm in the mood. This will have a red, white and blue strippy back. |
Orange is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013. If you'd like to see more, check out Angela's SoScrappy blog here.
|I made table topper number 3 a couple of days ago. I should be getting organized and ready for DH to come home, but I can't seem to stay out of my sewing room. I think he might come home this week, he's doing very well.|
|This is why I didn't worry about stars on my flag (see picture above, they wouldn't show anyway, I didn't have an appropriate fabric, and I wanted a quick finish. Maybe some day I'll go back and applique at least one big star.|

|It really is square, but it's on the back of a poufy chair. I was almost finished with the perfect binding for the brown side, and then I remembered that it had to also go with the purple side, oh oh, back to the cream fairy frost.|

|I considered myself done with purple after last week, but then when I went to Angela's blog I thought maybe I had a table topper left in me. So, I whipped this very simple one up.|
|It's not finished yet, and this will be the other side when it gets its border. I think that some of my leftover cream fairy frost will be good for both sides for a binding and then I will consider this the year round side and the lavender side for Easter. Slowly but surely I'm adding to my table toppers.|
