Scrappy Wednesday

It's back to rainy, cold (possibly snow), yucky days - time to play.  I had pieced that heap of stings a couple of weeks ago and I would like to do something with them so they off the corner of the table.  

Trimming them down and removing papers.  The yellow is left from the Unicorn quilt and I would like to use that up rather than store it.

I'll make as many blocks as the yellow allows and then we play with layout from there.

I didn't get too far with the RSC20 color for the month and there are only a few more days left. 

Let's Play,

OMG - February

I'm using the OMG @ Elm Street Quilts  to progress a project into it's next stage.  It might be a small step or a large step, but this month's was more of a challenge because it involved borders - and I hate borders.

The Threadology Quilt Along with Moda in 2019 has had it's borders added to create a giant spool.  It will now go into the 'to-be-quilted' pile - not for long as I plan to enter it in a Fall show.  I have the backing and binding fabrics, so once it gets to the top of the pile (or pulled) it will get finished off.

Allowed to Follow a Voice

This was the project I chose for my Facebook Group - Finish One Project.  And I am happy to say that a 2015 flimsy ('Hillside Houses' by Pretty Little Quilts that sat hidden in a tote is now finished.  The solid grey for the back and binding with organic straight line quilting with grey thread top/bottom.  This has been entered in the April quilt show.  I don't expect to win anything, but this one deserves a little special attention after being hidden for so long.

Since I have all my projects completed for the month, I'm allowed to follow those crazy voices in my head and play.  So I started on the 'Kids in Pajamas' quilt.  I think these are just so stinkin' cute!  This pattern is definitely for those use to working with tiny pieces as many .75" and 1" size squares and skinnies.  I've noted since the first one how to change some of the cutting and piecing to eliminate some of those tinies for less seam/bulk.  I'll be changing up the final layout as well to suit my own little 'herd' - also known as a tribe or a trip.  I would love to own some pygmy goats for my own 'tribe' - gotta have a tribe. 

We might get lucky and see some sunshine this weekend - gotta love that too.
