In Wait of Daffadils


This months color for RSC15 is YELLOW and it makes me long for daffadils.  I  managed to get a start on my blocks - the Sawtooth Stars.


And the 9-Patch Houses that go with them.


The Woven Heart using the last of those fun dotty fabrics.


I had help - of sorts.  He was more interested in the telescopic magnet wand - yes, he knocked my pins on the floor.  I do have a variety of yellows, but found they are on the pale side so it was a challenge to come up with some interest.  I also did up my 40 'bricks' for a long term project - but didn't photo them as that is a boring pile.

I will work on the Bitty Blocks next week.  The newest block is this cute little house which I will resize for a 4" block.  Quilty Pleasures also showed several options on how to set these blocks HERE.  You certainly could use those ideas for other blocks to create your own row quilt.

This weekend we will see another dusting of snow and then next week we will see a heat wave - we might get into the 40's!!  So I plan to get my wallhanging quilted up Saturday, join in the Sunday Slow Stitching because I plan on taking some very long outdoor walks should that warming happen.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Moe made me laugh, that's a great picture. The bitty blocks always make me think of you, the new house ones are cute and I keep thinking they'd make an interesting border for the right quilt. Time consuming but worth it.

  4. Your yellow blocks really bring thoughts of spring even though the view out my window screams, "Winter." Moe must keep you laughing. He always seems to be up to something. Who would have thought that a walk outdoors in March would seem like such a luxury.

  19. Lots of bright yellow in those blocks. I had to pass on looking at the house blocks, I'm trying really hard to resist the temptation to start anything new. I'll have to just enjoy watching your new blocks come to be.
