Hopscotch; Stash Report; Rainbow Scrap Challenge

Hopscotch....I guess I've determined how large I want the center. It's quite amazing how fate works.....I ran out of 4-patches at the completion of 63 blocks, so a 7x9 layout it is. I have plenty of the copper fabric for sashing and may even have enough left over for a final border. For now, it rests.

A few nights this past week, I started sorting and cutting some purple scraps for April's Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I have not counted any of this into my stash report yet.....

Stash Report: April 4 - 10
Used/week: 16.25 yds (Backing for RRCB & Raven Stars; Hopscotch blocks)
Purch/week: 0.0 yds

Used/year: 62.875 yds
Purch/year: 11.0 yds

Net Used: 51.875 yds

To close this post.....I always enjoy glimpsing through pictures after Candace has had the camera. There is what she snapped over the past two days....







Off to eat some late lunch and then head outside. We broke SEVENTY DEGREES TODAY!!!!! Wooooooo :0)

I love the quilt!!! Is this a Bonnie Hunter pattern? Now I'm thinkin' I know what to do with my leader enders.

Hope the nasty weather wasn't in your part of the state (was watchin' the Weather Channel)

Hugs!

The copper fabric is fabulous. Glad you have enough for the border -- it will be perfect! What is the purple going to turn into?
70 degrees! Is the ice and snow finally going to melt?

Hopscotch is looking lovely. Can't wait to see what you do with your purple scraps.
