RSC 16: September is pink with yellow

Each month Angela gives a colour to be used from the scrap bin, and this month the colour is pink with some yellow. We had already used pink earlier in the year, but I managed to find some pink (some the same fabric I used before) and some pink and yellow. I made half an extended bear paw block.

I think I'll still be making these next year!

The last few days I've been working on a present for a friend:

which also has a lot of pink and yellow. As she sometimes reads my blog I'm not publishing photos of  the whole thing until next weekend!

Now I'm also trying to quilt my Star Light, Star Dark quilt before the QAL deadline at Quilty Habit on Monday week. This is a view of the three blocks on the dark side:

and a close up of the quilting so far:

not much done yet!

As I'm quilting each half separately and then joining by QAYG technique I have a feeling I'm not going to make the deadline!

A short post this week, but now you know why! I'm now off to fit the supreme slider and the BSR and hit the FMQ big time!

I'm linking up to:

RSC16        Quilting is more fun than Housework

 so pop over there and see what others have been doing with their scraps this week.

Happy sewing

Love your little bear paws Marly. I jumped on the RSC band wagon this month : ) and made my first block! Hard to imagine how it will all work in the end with all the rainbow colors. Maybe red was a bad color to start with. After making the first block I love it and now I want an all red and Cream quilt! And that is how my UFO pile continues to grow. So easily off track on a whim : ) Thanks for sharing. Janita

Each time you show some of your bear paws I fall in love with them again. It's the special mix of color with b/w that gets me. Your quilting is looking very good. Hope you meet the deadline. Keep up the good work!.
