When you wind 8 bobbins and use all of them, it is a wonderful weekend of sewing! After 'dumpster diving' in the scrap bin for purple fabrics for the Rainbow Challenge blocks ( and a few more pink ones got made as I found more pinks)- I set aside lite color bits to make corners for these little 16-patches. Maybe next weekend I can start putting these all together into a quilt top.
Then I worked on Row Two of Temecula's little quilt. 5 pretty square in a square blocks - although I am thinking of replacing the striped corners on the one block.
I haven't laid all these blocks out before and I did so this weekend. Grandmother's Choice Quilt Along with newest block made up I have changed some of the blocks that I had trouble with the originals just not coming out to size or horribly wonky. I just wanted to see and make sure I am getting a good balance of color. I think we are half way into the blocks now.
And February's NewFO project - my LQS - Quilt Bug's Super Bowl Mystery was a fun start, but then I had some interuptions so only got the center done. Hopefully I can get the borders on today. Kris will be leaving this up for free until Feb 16th and then it will be a paid pattern. There were just 3 clues and a few people were real speed stitchers! If you scroll all the way to the bottom of that page, you will see some of the finished flimsies.
