Hi folks! Hope you are already having a great weekend. Just another update on the rainbow scrap challenge projects. It's a hot and stormy day today with a hot and stormy color to show off.
Do you have much red? I do not. In fact, I had to really scramble to
get any red for my projects at all. I used up most of the actual good reds in the row I made for the row quilt. I think it's because there are not a lot of
good reds any more. Other people have written about this, and they're
so right! Mostly I have to find reds in the Valentine's or Christmas
fabrics, and there's always the danger of snowmen lurking somewhere.
So, I've mostly foregone red and have only one short piece of yardage in
the stash, and that's more of a juvenile fabric.
Before the red, though, one last green. I had a weird green floral piece left over from yesterday's project, so this is what I did with it:
I made a skirt for a doll, of course! I think she's very cute. The lighter-skinned dolls are very hard to photograph. They bleach out a lot. Take my word for it that they do end up looking fairly normal.
Once she was all done, I made her a few sisters:
I love them! I am so happy to use up that scrap for the doll on the left. That's been here for a while, but now it makes a great skirt! And the girl next to her is supposed to be wearing a chemo hat, because survivors need representation too, but I'm not sure how well that comes through. Two of these skirts are more coral than red, but they're what I had. Where else would you put coral? With orange? Or pink? I'm never sure.
I also rummaged up enough red strings to make two lonely little red string blocks:
Some of those strings are really tiny, but I managed to get a couple blocks, so I'm calling that a success! I'm sure they'll fit into the quilt just fine.
That's it from here! Hope you are making some progress on your projects too! I do love seeing what everyone else is doing. I always get so inspired, and then I go crazy because there are just too many projects and not enough days in the week. I'm sure no one else ever has that problem.
Enjoy your weekend, everyone! Hope the air conditioner is working! And if you celebrate it, Happy Eid! Enjoy the feast!
