Rainbow Scrap Blocks and a finished wallhanging.

I hope you have had a good weekend. I've had a busy weekend with the grandkids but I have had a little time to sew too.  I have been working on my Rainbow Scrap challenge blocks this week and I got my Boxed in Block done for this month. I didn't do a pink one as I had already made a pink one last year for this more block closer! 

I also got these little 6 1/2" blocks done. I am playing catch up for the rainbow scrap challenge. These are from January and I have alot of catching up to do but these blocks are fun and easy to do so far and I'm hoping to get caught up soon.

I made more Carolina chain blocks too...I made these for this month's color but I also made alot more colors and I had enough to put together 9 blocks.  I now only need 10 more blocks to finish this quilt....woo hoo, I'm so excited. This has really been a fun and easy project and I have enjoyed it alot.  These blocks are easy and quick to make and you can just sit and sew them together without thinking.    I just went in my sewing room and shut the door and just sewed away the stress

I put together these blocks too. These are cobblestone blocks or that was the name of the pattern I have. I have seen these same blocks on different blogs and I've seen them referred to as Happy blocks, whichever name you choose, these are easy too.

After the grandkids left today, I finished this little wallhanging. I quilted it this week but put the finishing touches on it today with binding, a hanging sleeve and a label.  This is another project that's been laying around for a few years that needing finishing. 
That's all I have for now.  I had so much going on this weekend, I could not make it to the Dallas Quilt show.  This is the first show I've missed in years but there are others coming soon that I hope to go to.  I hope you have a good week and get to sew or craft and show us what you're working on. Til next time, happy stitching, Linda

Oh, and Dallas is a big one, too! I never went when I lived in the SW because, almost every year, it was the same time as the Arizona Quilters Guild Show. Now I don't see either one! You were so busy since your last post. I love your scrappy blocks. Is this a project that's online? I have tons of 2.5" squares. And more are being added every week. Some have to go!

You have been busy with all these blocks. You're going to have a lot of quilts coming together at the same time. Being a cat lover, that wall hanging is brilliant, great fabric
