RSC Challenge to see what sampler Angela will be doing or what the plan is! I wimped out on the blocks I had chosen because they were not coming out to size and I didn't like them. I may choose another block this year and have been looking at the Reverse Rainbow Starburst block on Flutter Kat's blog. Bev chose this one for her RSC at Nimble Thimbles and it is super cool!

Jo's Country Junction for her Bonnie UFO Challenge!
Four more blocks made. A whole bunch more to go! Goal is to get this into a flimsy before Christmas. That way I can wrap it up for my son, then send it to the longarmer, lol!

Our last rotation was with Coleen. She was our camp queen this past camp--she gifted each of us with one of these at camp. So since we all wanted to know how they were made, she showed us how to make these cool scissor cases. Really simple! She even gave me the samples she used to teach us. Free pattern on Moda Bake Shop.
Ros has quilted Scrappy Mountain Majesties! Mackenzie is going to love this! I almost don't want to give it up. I love the quilting design she chose--she has a great eye for these things. Thank you Ros! Linking up with Angela since we are on light blues and there are plenty of those in here!Scrappy Mountain Majesties on Bonnie's blog!
Meanwhile I asked on the Quiltville Open Studio group if folks knew of other mysteries that were happening that day...there are a few on New Year's Day, but we both work that day and are off on New Year's Eve Day! I can find a few that are retreats, but we stay home and do this.
New Year's DAY Mysteries:
Merry Mayhem (Patchwork Planet, no info for this year yet)
Janet Wickell (about.com)
Quiltbug (no info for this year yet)
Cindy Roth's Blog
New Year's DAY or EVE mystery info:
Quiltmaker (no info yet)
Carterquilter (no info yet)
So even with all these suggestions, I have not found one with any information online for NYEve. If you know of any, please share with me!

Ros just posted she finished quilting My Purple Heaven! Pattern is at Quiltville (My Blue Heaven) for free. My daughter Hannah will be getting this one since purple is her favorite color and she doesn't mind a bit when I gift her with a quilt. I started it for Coleman's fiance but then they split up. They are sort of back together again but meanwhile I reassigned this quilt. Oh well! Maybe she will get one one day.
