Leap Day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge

Happy Leap Day!  The last day of February - I'm ready for a new color to play with, aren't you?!

Meanwhile February has been a good month for progress in my sewing room.  I finished my 2019 Tiny Tuesday sampler quilt:


Stitched up a flimsy out of crumb blocks, and the last of that gray Grunge:


Added eight orange trees to this year's RSC project:


And started a new project, too!

These are 4.5 inch HSTs sewn together in two rows of 12 to form a 48 inch zigzag. 
I'm working on catching up with January's green, too.

The Dresden sunflowers are ready to stitch on to my Scrappy Sprouts quilt top.  I started this one in 2018!  Time to get it quilted up.


Then there are the scraps from the scrap projects. 😘  I just keep cutting them smaller and figuring out ways to play with them!  

3.5 inch 4 patches for the parts department:


And more little bits for my tiny bowties:

These will finish at 2.25 inches.

It's all fun!  Linking up to SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday!

Oh, your Sprouting Sunflowers make my heart so happy! (do you think summer will ever get here, LOL?!?). I love those tiny bow ties, too. I may have to do another project with those - they’re addicting (like strings), aren’t they?

So many pretty projects that were finished this month! So many pretty projects that are nearly finished too. Looking forward to seeing what becomes of the zig zags and the teensy bow ties!

Wow! You are going full guns! Love your Tiny Tuesday piece, that binding is perfect and so are you crumb blocks and tree blocks! I am in LOVE with your sunflower quilt, that turned out so wonderfully! I like that the three blocks at the top are the same color and the leaves with the multi colors gives it movement. Well done Diann! You are an inspiration!
