Lucky Me!

Thursday I was up early to see what the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC16) color for September would be.  Nothing.  Same thing on Friday. 

I'm ashamed to admit that I had forgotten Angela at soscrappy would be right in Hermine's path and would certainly have other things on her mind!

Regardless, I decided to go to the studio to survey my options so that I'd be ready to move as soon as the color of the month was announced.  You see, each month this year I've been trying to link the RSC color to a UFO that I can set as my One Monthly Goal (Red Letter Quilts).

I pulled out two UFOs -- Star Gazing and Jubilee -- that had completed blocks and only needed sashing and borders to become finished tops. I decided to start working on Star Gazing, a quilt that I blogged about back in March, one that I had worked on while we were doing Grandparent duty over Easter weekend.

Star Gazing
This morning Angela announced the color(s) for September would be rose reds with a gold accent.  Lucky for me, Star gazing has several stars that fall in the rose red category!!

Not sure if this will be my OMG, but it will very likely get close to finished this month.


  1. You do have rosy and red going on in Star Gazing! What a win!
    (I kept checking Angela's blog for the color announcement, too. Like you, I'd forgotten she was in the Hermine neighborhood, too...)

  2. Good luck with completing your UFO!! I have to admit that I was too busy to even THINK about what the new Color of the Month might be. Now that the announcement has been made, I'm looking forward to playing in my scraps. RED isn't a favorite of mine, but challenging myself is fun!

  3. Wow, you were lucky! And fast! The Star Gazing top will be lovely. Looks great already!

  4. Red is a lovely color for September! I haven't been keeping up with the RSC this year, but I do have a Talkin' Turkey UFO that I might pull out and work on.

  5. That's a great system you have for using the colors and finishing your WIPs. Keep up the good work!

  6. Great choice for your RSC UFO - the rosy reds are perfect! Good luck with your progress on it.

  7. Congratulations on getting UFOs completed this year with the RSC colors!

  8. Great choice! Good luck finishing up your UFO. It sure is a beauty.

  9. Star Gazing is going to be beautiful. An excellent choice!
