October Table Scrap Challenge

Joy and lime green?  Joy and lime green - hmmm. What could I do with these parameters? Then I got it.

Finishing a quilt top for Jo's Country Junction, I remembered the table scraps I had left over from finishing off this quilt top.  I added a lime green border after a tad of black to finish this one off. And it reminded me of another UFO I'd been working on. It would be a "biggish" entry but it did bring me joy working with all those flowers and birds. And the lime green would make it pop! Measures 35" square.

These were blocks from an exchange that my daughter participated in, and she gave me the blocks several years ago. So I took care of a UFO and the challenge.

Energized by this finish I took another set of blocks - these from my Mom - and got the flimsy done. Now it needs quilting. Here is a Bit of Red Work by Mom. She did the embroidered blocks. I did the Irish Chain ones. Measures 25" x 20".

What are you up to?  Leave me a comment and I'll check out your work. Always fun to go on over and have a look see. I'm linking to The Joyful Quilter, Angela's RSC challenge and Design Wall Monday.

Blessings to you all - prayers for those who need them.


  1. It's not about the size of the project, but the USING of those scraps, Angie. Way to knock out your challenge project AND an older UFO at the same time!

  2. That touch of green makes the whole project pop! Beautiful Redwork and I love the chain to set them off.

  3. Your lime-green bordered quilt is a lovely finish! That's a great way to finish off a UFO. Love the red Irish Chain with embroidered blocks, too!

  4. I love your mini quilt. What a great block to show off some novelty prints. That green is the perfect call for the border. So cool that you can put your mother's precious stitches in a quilt. No borders on this one? It will be a perfect wall hanging. Enjoy! ;^)

  5. Hi Angie, your quilt is both joyful and bright green - congrats. It's really cute. I'm glad that you're working on your mother's quilt. That will also bring you joy :-)


Thank you for stopping by. It's always nice to hear from you. I try to reply to each and every one of you, but sometimes life gets in the way. I hope you understand. Blessings.
