I am enjoying Bonnie's new mystery. It has been a while since I did one and grateful she offered two sizes - I'm doing the smaller version and staying with her suggested colors because I HAD those. I had a lot of 2" strips of green - must have been planning a log cabin quilt, but they are getting used up here. Stacked them and made quick work of making those bricks. I had most of the yellows in my 2" barrel so not a lot of cutting needed there. And I had a lot of neutrals already cut, but I picked up a couple of shirting layer cakes so I could add more variety. Again, stacked those and made for quick cutting. We are in for that ice storm to move in to our area, so as long as we don't lose power, I will keep working on these until the chevrons are completed.
I love this pattern and may just use it to make a planned quilt in 2014. I didn't use the black in any of my projects - leaving the option of a black sashing.
And the 6" log cabin blocks - you just can't go wrong with a log cabin.
The bitty stars all twinkling.....
The Sprout blocks waiting to grow.......
None of these blocks are going to be a finish with me because they are all packed up and ready to head out to Sarah - Confessions of a Fabric Addict - and her wonderful group to hopefully find that perfect home to fill a heart with hope and love. They are a group that I love to send blocks and flimsies to and will continue in 2014.
For the RSC14 I plan on working a LOT of string blocks because that is what is left in that big tote. I was going to try the muslin foundation, but everyone had passed on their old phone books to me - so I will be using up that phone paper. And I have a lot of 1.5" squares in that barrel (along with the strings) that I think a postage stamp quilt is in the cards, too.
I will be linking up with:
