1st rsc 2021 and a finish

Happy New Year! 

I hesitate to say it, since I said it last year, and look what happened.

Pink is the first color of the year for the rainbow scrap challenge. I hope to follow a plan for working on this challenge this year.

1. grab color wire basket and sort

 I keep my fabric chunks in wire baskets by color. Some baskets are in tidy shape, others, not so much. Pink is very tidy and full.

2. decide ufo by color -prioritize as #1

pink -2 love pillowcases, 2 baby flannel quilts, zuckerwaite ( any progress is progress)

3. make ongoing rsc blocks

tiny houses

postage stamp psp20

ice cream

waffle stamp blocks

4. cut/use 2 1/2 in strips in color

    wonky stars with crumb centers ?     purple churndash ?     nearly lemoyne hunter ?     coins ?

    rectangles ?

5. Make or finish a table topper for the challenge with Joy of Joyful quilting

6. participate with the full stop quilt that Angela is doing

My first ufo in pink are two pillowcases I bought in Utah one year while visiting my daughter.

fabrics in kit 2

I have a project box collecting all the crafty and not quilty projects that never seem to get done. This is one of them. It is a small project, compared to a quilt, so, I hope to make more than one ufo project in January

And, hooray, my first finish for 2021. It is a real relief to have this off the ufo/ to do list.

  4. Sounds like you have a good plan for the RSC. I don't participate myself, but I love rainbows and enjoy seeing the projects other bloggers create.
    Cute pillowcases! I don't think I have heard of Gracie Lou's. I wonder if it is still there? The way quilt shops come and go lately, you never know. I have a son in Vineyard. Where is your daughter?
