No, I'm not blue - just playing with blue scraps. Those two large tubs I thought were so full of scraps - weren't. I forgot I have my flannels, minky, and extra wides packed in them with some scrap bags on top. I really had to dig for some blues. I want to make Angela's RSC16 Column Sampler so I really needed some larger pieces. Thus the FQ tote came out to play along with my tote of larger pieces of white. AND there's Moe - ready to help.
Some of my FQs aren't really FQs, so I tried to use those smaller pieces and then threw the left overs in the baggy of odd pieces I found. I made two of each color way - all of them have the same dark textured center.
I'm making the smaller version, so only needed 6 blocks. I love this block so much!!
And I finished up all the spool blocks as leader/enders while doing those sparkler stars. I use Kona Black a LOT and have so many pieces, cut-offs, left over bindings - hopefully this project will use those up.
As I was clearing and putting things away - Moe had to change napping spots. I pulled some skinnies and bits from the 'white' tote to play with the baggy of blues at some point (log cabin blocks) - they must have looked like they needed holding down.
I know you want to see what I bought at that sale. Neutrals! Three one yard cuts and a three yard extra wide backing. The JR is EBI Fabrics which I have not heard of or bought before, but at $18 and I like the mix of black/grey/lime green (it looks yellow in photo). And the cute 'Cat Stack' wool/felt wall hanging kit was half price and had to come home with me.
And I got this really cool bag (free) to carry all my goodies home. It was a beautiful weather day - I think we had more snow in the Valley than the Catskill Mountains did. Lovely drive with some sweet people - lunch out, lively talk, lots of laughs - perfect day.
I have to drag out and set up my big tables to layer and baste out a quilt - then quilt it. My weekend project - what's yours?
