June Friday Night Sew In

I got started a little early for June's Friday Night Sew In. I'd chosen a task to get caught up on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks because I missed them the last two months when I was busy with house projects. I had intended to spend all evening on them, but after a couple of hours I got thrown into cleaning mode. My sewing room is a disaster and it was getting hard to work in there. It would be nice to have that room usable again so I can focus on my projects and not looking for things.

Anyway, I got started on my blocks for the Arlington Square quilt. I have been intentionally using uglies because I want this to be a really scrappy quilt and I think they give character. =) I may have to start cutting white fabric off of yardage because I've gone through nearly all my white scraps with all my recent scrap projects. 

This is the design of the finished quilt. I may end up doing the sashing during next year's RSC.
I'm linking up with Friday Night Sew-In and Finished or Not Friday

I hope you all have a good weekend. I'll likely spend it cleaning my sewing room.


  1. A great use of your scraps. They go together well.

  2. Even if called "uglies", they surely do add pizazz to a quilt. The design is really cool too. When you finish getting your sewing room spiffed up, please come over and do the same for mine! Another disaster calling YOUR name! Ha!

  3. What a great idea, using the uglies! LOL. I did that with 2.5"x5" rectangles and ended up not liking them so I cut them down to 2.5" squares and made a scrappy quilt that was perfect! Chrisknits

  4. Nice work on your scrap project and a great way to use up those uglies! Hope the cleanup went well. xx

  5. For using Uglies - that is quite pretty!! glad you got to get caught up!
