DWM - 2/18/13
I had originally planned to play in my scrap bin over the weekend, but I needed to do a LOT of housecleaning - and trying to vacumm a floor covered in scraps just would not work. Then I realized I had a lot of blocks that needed catching up on. I can do a block break inbetween cleaning!! These blocks are for the My Favorite Block QAL. I chose to do a paperpieced owl instead of the offered applique (but that is saved) and four little hearts instead of the 12" single block. I am using my huge pile of brown scraps with a little color thown in.
And the next round for Darlene's Mystery had come out - the hourglass border. Rather than another scrappy set, I went with a single fabric with a lite background and repeated the skinny border strip fabric to tie it all in.
I had fused the next block for the Album Kit quilt, but had done nothing with it - so I got some stitching done - the berries still need to be worked on.
The 4th row of The Diary of a Quilt Shop had come out, so I made these up. Oh, they go really fast and I would love to do a quilt using this block in homespuns. Maybe I'll set up a kit and have this as a leader/ender project for March's NewFO.
And the reason I need a new March NewFO is I started the one I already had kitted up. This is Connie's 'CrossRoads' pattern (see it on her sidebar) and it really goes fast! I had some white with white dragonflies from Timeless Treasures and it plays so nicely with a Jelly Roll of Holly Taylor's 'Enchanted Pond' for Moda. Pretty butterflies, dragonflies, soft little flowers and pond plants with a mix of sketchy solids.
