The Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016 color for July - one of my favorites to work with!
And yet -- do I have a pink scrap bin? NO! Nothing in the FQ bucket, either! Maybe the hot pink scraps are lurking in the red bin .... no time to look right now.
I do, however, have a couple of UFOs where hot pink is featured, so it was easy to come up with my One Monthly Goal (OMG) for July. Actually, it's going to be a TMG month.
Project One goes back a LONG way, and all it needs is quilting. Now that I'm feeling more confident in my machine quilting skills, I think this little 36" x 38" wall hanging is very doable.

I had been collecting yellows and pinks for another quilt (that has never been made, by the way) so that was my starting point. You can see the progression from almost white to mostly yellow and eventually on to yellow with pink. The 9-patches and whole squares finish at 2-1/4" (don't ask me why I came up with such an odd measurement). The applique is from a pattern by Cynthia Tomaszewski called "Sitting Pretty."
The project stayed unfinished for quite a while until I tackeled the top stitching on the fused applique --one of my least favorite things to do, next to borders. So it remained without borders until I found the right fabric.
Now it's time to get this one done!
Project Two has languished not quite as long, but you can see some of the same fabrics appear in it along with many of the other fabrics that had been designated for the never-started project.
