Last RSC in yellow.

 This week I made 6 yellow sweet confetti blocks after carefully counting and finding 90 blocks so far. I needed 96 for the quilt. I laid them out (in way too small of a space it appears). Count of 95! There are 6 yellow blocks. I'm not sure where the other one ran away to, or if I just counted wrong..... Oh well, it will either turn up before I decide to sew these together or I'll just make another one in yellow. I hope I like this one more when I spread out the colors a little better and get it sewn together. A bit busy. Not sure if an all over baptist fan or just outline quilting on this one but plenty of time to think on that decision. This one should measure 54.5x72.5 according to the Sunday Best Quilts book where I got the pattern from.


I did get the cobblestones pinned yesterday. Hopefully it will get quilted this weekend. We finally got some cooler weather.... my morning walk was in 56 degrees without humidity. It was heavenly! The house is opened up with everything open and 73 degrees.

Linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Saturday morning.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is a horse show where Emily rides. A 'home' show so 4-5 hours. Last time a couple years ago she had her in 4 events.... we are novices at this so we will find out as it happens. The end is a Halloween contest for horse and rider. Emily is going as Sarah Sanderson from Hocus Pocus (the blond witch) and Lance her horse will be somehow dressed as a broom. We have brown fabric, raffia and thinking PVC pipe or brown construction paper for the broom handle. Not 100% sure how it will work but we will see how it goes tomorrow! Greg got tomorrow off so he could go, however.... he was on his back fixing the dryer heating element yesterday morning and is feeling it today. He called out reluctantly tonight after hemming and hawing for a couple of hours this morning. Let's hope rest and Tylenol and Advil and he will be better for work on Monday. Grandma is planning to come over for the show so she will have at least 2 people cheering her on!

We had snow early this morning. Your missing block must be playing with mine.

The fall weather is such a nice change. It will be perfect for enjoying a horse show. Good luck on the costume! It sounds like fun plan.

Confetti is going to be AWESOME!! I'll be looking forward to seeing how you decide to set the blocks. Baptist Fan quilting might be a nice option for the quilting. Wishing Em good luck at horses today (and hoping G's back gets better soon!!)

I love your Sweet Confetti blocks - I don't think they're too busy at all! Of course one is missing - it's probably with all those missing socks. :) Hope the horse show is fun!

The color and movement in your Confetti quilt is terrific! Have fun at the horse show. My sister was the main rider in our family. I was really good at getting bucked off.

Your confetti blocks look wonderful, wonder where that missing block is hiding? A bit like the quilt label I'm making, and now cant find it anywhere. If I start another, the original is sure to reappear.

I love your Confetti!
Your missing block will turn up about 5 minutes after you make a replacement, going by my experience...
