Large Spool block. So much fun to play in my aqua/teal scraps even though I really don't have tons of them!
Small Butterflies went together pretty easily...if I don't mention that I sewed extra triangles onto the body parts too and had to recut my centers. I really do need to read the directions instead of just going gangbusters on things!
Searching and was quick and easy to sew up!
Rainbow Scrap Sampler blocks I have done so far! I believe this is all of them that have been put out so far. I really like that the scale of some of them is large and in others small and in a few teeny, tiny! Also love the one wonky block so far, really will make this visually interesting when it is all together.
I will be linking up to the next linky on Saturday too!

Kevin the Quilter's QOV Block drive and got it all ready to send out. Five blocks took me less than an hour! Click on over if you want to help out. Sometimes it is hard to do an entire quilt, but a few simple blocks from lots of folks will turn into lots of quilts!
I also found out my cousin Brian (Tricia's baby brother) and his wife are expecting another baby girl! They are due soon and I am behind on the news. So I packed up my Dimestore Schnibbles quilt for her.

This is Brenna's completed top for her daughter Hannah. Hannah's favorite color is lime green. The lighting isn't so good here, but it looks fantastic!
This is as far as Sally made it on her quilt. It will be a beauty!
This quilt is Mary Ellen's. she had her borders on backwards in this picture (the flowers didn't go around the corners) so she ripped it out and reattached it. She is hoping the quilting will help her lack of contrast too.
And once again, here is my Fireworks! So three of the seven of us finished and another gal was close, the rest have some work to do at home, but hopefully will be sharing pictures with us along the way!

I had quickly cut a few the morning we left right after reading Bonnie's announcement and was really happy I had them to sew while I was there!
This is what the final quilt looked like. It was raining on Saturday so I wasn't able to take it outside and get a sunny picture of it. I am super happy with it and know that when it is quilted the accent fabric will pop more. I have decided to name it Fireworks since the instructor didn't have a time and couldn't decide on one despite all the suggestions we gave her!
