Last year -- or was it the year before? -- I started a table mat for Light Blue RSC although there are all shades used in it. I never finished. Apparently I never even took a picture so we'll just move on to how I progressed this month.
This year we are doing ABC (RSC) Table Scraps and January's letters are C, R, or J. My inspiration has come from this book by Sheryll Johnson.
It's full of fun little quilts and I have liked this one in particular for quite some time.
Love that rooster! So I made one ready to bond to my already made top from a while ago. After all, through the ABC Table Scrap Challenge I was ready to use the R for Rooster!
I used some remaining fabric from the baby quilt I just finished to make my rooster for this previously made table mat. After deciding my rooster was too small, i was ready to make a larger version, All of a sudden it hit me that this was year of the rabbit and R is also for Rabbit! So I set to work. I tried a couple different sizes and came up with this. The size is good and I love this fabric with my scraps!
I'll need to get it quilted up but I think it's a winner! If you're wondering about why I didn't follow the pattern in the book, it's because of the size. This one will be perfect on the end table in our den. Time to get the Christmas one off and put away!
As for the dark blues for Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I did manage my 2 Scrappy Pineapple blocks.
With the baby quilt behind me, I'm ready to jump into the February RSC color for more pineapples. Wondering what the color will be for February!!??!!
Joining in with The Joyful Quilter for the Table Scraps Challenge and also with So Scrappy for RSC. Have a great weekend!
