Caught Up At Last!

I caught up with my Rainbow Scrap Challenge this weekend. Hurray!

Last month, May, the color was green. Just couldn’t get “a round tuit” because (everyone join in!) school…

This month is yellow and I’m finished already. There’s a first time for everything!

Here are the greens:

RSC Greens 1
RSC Greens2

The blocks in the bottom row of four contains some special blocks. Left to right: Daisies from a vintage sheet, I think I had that exact pattern on a sheet in the 60s? Plaid, I lovey dovey plaid! Realio, trulio 30s fabric from my Aunt Marie’s stash, froggies from my Sisty Ugler’s stash.

Now that I’m half a year into RSC, I’ve come up with a plan!


For each color, I want one plaid block, one vintage block and quite a few novelty fabrics. I don’t have many novelty fabrics and especially in my past quilts. I decided that I’d like to get a bunch in here for the giggles.

Moving right along…get along little doggies…

RSC Yellow 1
RSC Yellow 2

The bottom set has the special ones. Left to right:
Row 1: Authentic 30s fabric, a yellow I adore, used sparingly, plaid,
Row 2: vintage gingham (like you can tell!), a baby print (nothing special), a quilt from our local guild show 2007

Row 3: My dad and I—Happy Father’s Dad!, A silly photo of my hubby wearing my sisty ugler’s glasses and my grandpa’s hat, my sisty ugler 1989.

Hooking up with Rainbow Scrap Challenge (badge on the left) and the wonderful blogs listed on the right. Be sure to check them out and see other quilter’s wonderful work.


  1. Am I the only one who remembers Sisty Ugler? It makes me laugh every time I read it!

    1. You're the only person I know that remembers Cinderella and her Three Sisty Uglers! My sister and I have used it ever since we first saw the show.

  2. Love your fabrics and blocks. Good idea for a scrap challenge : )

    1. Thanks! I don't have much time during the school year to quilt so I thought this would be easy enough to keep up on. When I put them on the design wall they look really nice.

  3. I'll send you some novelty fabrics - I've made bunches of I Spy quilts now, and still that specialty stash grows... send me your address via email. I'll send some pieces big enough (say what's b. e.).

  4. great job on the RSC! Oh, and my best friend's aunt used to tell the Sisty Ugler story to us. We used to beg her to tell it, and we would always crack up laughing! I'm not familiar with the origination of it, but I do remember loving when she would entertain us with it!

    Thank you so much for linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Kelly! I'm so excited to find someone else who knows the sisty ugler story. I heard it first on TV. I've always thought it was on the Smothers Brothers Show, but not really sure.

  5. What a great idea to have a theme for the fabrics used. Your blocks are going to look great together! Well done!

  6. Great yellow scrappy kwilt. Stoppong by from FFF linky.


I love comments. They make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy. To show you my appreciation, I try to answer everyone's comment. :)
