Rainbow Scrap Challenge for August

Really had me thinking when I read the requirements for this month - Misty mountains are the color inspiration for this time around.  Think of the hazy purple of a dawn sky with hints of evergreens and feel free to dip into the grey bin if you are low on the purples.

I had to go through my scraps and stash with a very open mind and  not be so discounting of as many fabrics as I have in the past when selecting my challenge colours.   As you can see  below I really based my selection on a very misty morning hence a lot of light colours with greys, lilacs and a smidge of very early morning pale gold thrown in.



Now onto sewing them up and adding them to my pile of pretties that have been gathering over the last 7 months.  

Last month my quilting group had an "in-house" workshop and one of the members showed us how to make a stained glass wall-hanging.  Our "homework" was to complete it and bring it back this month for "show and tell".  I enjoyed the process and result but can see that a large quilt is not in the foreseeable future.   



Back soon with a photo my newly sewn misty mountain 9 patch squares and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

 Linking with Quilting is more fun then Housework and So Scrappy
