🌈RSC Blue🔷

I'm doing the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) in 2024! June's RSC color is blue! Angela at Super Scrappy posts a new color every month.
This year I'm making butterflies from my spare stash of 5" squares! I'm using the Hope Takes Flight free pattern from Robert Kaufmann.

With this month being all shades of blue, and Japan being the country of "Blue & White", 10 of my prints were purchased in Japan, so I'm not going to ask if you have any of them! There is also, a Tula Pink print, a Decostitch, a Floral Elements, and others, 6 in all, thrown in!

Scrap Quilts & Projects

I discovered a box full of scraps that I had totally forgotten about since we moved into our current home 9 years ago!!! My original thought was to cut all these scraps up into 10" squares, 5" strips, 5" squares, 2 1/2" strips or 2 1/2" squares, in that order, as I usually do with scraps.
Then I ran across this video ⤵️ and changed my mind! I decided to try Tracy's method from The Sewing Channel and make a scrap quilt out of them!!!

The Villa Rosa Designs Blog Hop in March was a blast!!! So fun to see all the different versions of these fast and fun patterns!!! Thank you to everyone who commented on my VRD Blog Hop!!! 
I asked everyone to comment on which pattern they would like to make first. The definite top winner was Twinkle!!! A distant second was Gypsy Rose!!! Ebb Tide, Clover and 31 all came in close to each other, in that order. 

Twinkle takes the most time of all five patterns, so I was surprised that it was the most popular, but it definitely has the cuteness factor!!!

Happy Easter!!!🐣

 Happy Easter!!! The day that changed history!!! He is risen!!! 

Here are some of my Easter decorations and handmades: the bunnies and wooden eggs were carved by my Dad, the decorated eggs were made by my childhood friend and next door neighbor, and I made the bunny hop mini quilt, fabric basket and felt bunny item.
Four more fabric baskets I made, and each one stuffed with a Squishmallow!!! ⤵️
And the real reason for the season, we celebrate Jesus, laying down His life for us, defeating death and giving eternal life to all who believe in Him!
Happy Easter!!! 

Grace and peace!!! ~Nancy
