OMG progress

I'm making progress on my splendid sampler. I have 12 blocks quilted and wishing I had a friend with a long arm. Or I had a machine with a bigger throat.

The kids are enjoying a day off from school. Roads were icy so they canceled.

Rainbow Scrap Challenge

I'll be participating again in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I'm planning on doing the RSC sampler. but I'm also looking at other projects to use up my scraps.

This Rainbow Irish Chainhas been in my list for a while now.



I recently seen a rainbow version of The village quilt and I plan on doing that.



I also think making these fish out of crumb blocks would be fun.





I also plan on finishing the rainbow Scrap quilt I have started.



I would also love to do this quilt.

OMG-January

Last year I seen lots of different posts for OMG (One Monthly Goal). I decided to check it out. And I'm going to join in this year.

I decided for January I want to make progress on my Splendid Quilt.

This has been a completed top since April of 2017. I started this in February of 2016 as part of a QAL. I've been scared to try quilting it on my domestic machine. But I'm trying to work out a plan, and hope to make progress on it. It might have to wait a little bit though, I think the kids are coming down with the flu.

And here is the finished top:
