Description

For my June project for the Pretty in Patchwork Holidays Sew Along I think I'm going to just do the word "Celebrate!" I'd like to be able to use it for more of the year than just Christmastime, including birthdays and family celebrations. 

I'm going through my scraps right now for bright colors (though I must say my scraps were sadly depleted by a very naughty and troublesome little kitten who thought my scrap bins were her litter box. :angry:

Planning colors for letters:

C - Red
E - Pink
L - Orange
E - Yellow
B - Green
R - Teal/Aqua
A - Blue
T - Lavender
E - Purple
! - Rainbow scraps!

My purple/lavender bin was one that was completely ruined so hopefully I have enough of larger cuts of fabric. Fortunately it doesn't take very much for each letter!

Carolmarie I can only assume! She did it in FOUR different scrap bins that were sorted by color. And they were on shelves and difficult to climb into... plus she had buried it!

True

Love these fabrics but oh what a naughty kitty!! I am so sorry:-( But this will be fun to see...

Liking the fabric you picked for the "C". Can't wait to see the rest of your letters. I too am changing this up a little and decided to make one for my granddaughter and one for my grandson with their names to hang in their rooms. Thrilled that the book included all the letters.

Amanda

Quilt455 True Thank you! I'm having fun choosing fabrics for each color letter. I have the first "E" done now too and fabric cut for "L" and the next "E."

Quilt455 - such a good idea to do names! I love it and can't wait to see them!

Darling idea! And is the kitty mad at you or what? I thought I had it bad with my dogs but at least they can't jump up into high places. They just go for whatever is on the floor and chew. Cats poop and dogs chew. Pick your battle!

Quilt455 Will we get to see a picture soon? Fabulous idea for customizing their rooms!

I love the idea of 'celebrate' as the bunting! I can't wait to see the rest!
I'm going with my daughters name for my bunting!

Mymble

Love your idea- and the rainbow colors- great!

Amanda

Terryt1955 Thank you! Who knows... she seems to just be very confused about what a litter box is.

Amanda

Caribousmom Thank you! I can't wait to see yours!

Amanda

Mymble Joanne-rosedahlia Thank you! I'm loving the look of the rainbow letters.

Now I just need to get this done in time for my daughter's birthday party on Friday!

Mymble

This came out so wonderfully! Love it!

Amanda

Mymble Carolmarie Thank you both! I'm so happy with it too! I was a little unsure of some of my color/fabric choices but I think it turned out ok!

I love this so much I'm about to make one for one of my Pay It Forward projects, only I think my background is going to be scrappy b/w fabrics and the letters will be different colors. I'm going to use Elizabeth Hartman's Refrigerator Magnet pattern. I'm curious, how tall are yours?

Amanda

Juline Thank you! I think it would be awesome to do the letters different colors! These blocks finish at 7 inches. Can't wait to see what you make!

Juline

How did you finish your blocks? Did you use any batting, flannel or stabilizer or anything?

Amanda

Juline These are just stitched to a backing fabric on three sides then turned right side out. The top edge is finished with binding. There is no stabilizer or batting.

Juline

Thanks!
