I wish that meant it was the last brown weekend for outside, but things are still in 'winter' sleep around here. I finished up the brown 9-patches with my 1.5" scraps. Although, I think I added just as many or more back into that barrel.
The Patiences Corners blocks for the next part of the RSC16 column quilt. The brown bramble looks like most of our trees and bushes right now and I'm hoping to see our first flowers soon - little purple viney things (weeds). So this column really represents our February. And I found these in that scrap tote I am trying to empty out this year.
It's starting to look like a quilt! Can't wait to see what the next column is going to be - and color. Maybe green?
Not the kind of brown you want to find. This beautiful fabric is dated 2005 (not quilting at this time) and I remember getting it to make a table clothe for my kitchen table. Well, I was re-habbing from a car accident and someone just threw the fabric on the table and items set on it stained it as well as the moisture pulled the 200 yr old varnish off the table. I just cannot get this clean. So I am using it for something else.
Ah, another brownish stain I have trouble removing. Yup, I made some binding out of that fabric which goes nicely with my blue and yellow scrap 'Nifty Nines' quilt. She knows once that binding is totally finished - no more cat scanning is allowed, so she's getting her last snuggle in.
I have a few quilts finished (and my SIL) that I hope to some day get photo'ed outside - if the weather ever permits. We had a couple of days of torrential rains and awfull thunderstorms - in February! And today was so windy you could have flown the skies with Dorothy and Toto.
