There are just two weeks and two rosettes left for the temperature quilt. I am trying to get all my flowers stitched to backgrounds and into the last row so once that final rosette is done, so is the quilt top. As you see a bit of the blue in the background block, yes we jumped from winter into summer. BUT, we seem to be slipping into fall. We are to be cooler for the next week or so.

Today the plan is to get the strips sewn around those scrappy orange 10" squares for the Moda Bake Shop STEP DOWN quilt. These will go quickly as they chain right thru the machine lickety split!
Then I'll work on getting at least one side of these blocks attached. The strattas from that gifted scrap bag have all been cut to size - I just had to pull a couple of my strip strattas to get a few more for the number of blocks. The nice thing about using a constant - Kona White - the strips were left over from another project and the corner HSTs I'll dig thru my HST tote and then use up more left over Kona scraps to make what I need. Yes, it all gets saved and it all gets used.
AND the fuzzy photos are my cameras fault. The dang thing froze during the library floral/quilt show and I finally got it to work by banging the heck out of it. The lens is frozen out, but it doesn't adjust for brightness/sharpness/settings - but at least I can take photos! This weekend will be a bit of shopping because my coffee maker is working quirky, too. It does run in threes as my car has been in the shop for a few days (hoping it's back today).
A friend is worth a thousand stitches
Like your orange challenge.it is not a color i use much and i will be intetested in seeing how it comes out.
Hope everything gets fixed. My car battery died on me, Friday, while I was at a garage sale. Thank goodness hubby worked from home that day.
Coffee maker would be first on my list,, then maybe the car, and the camera equal!!!All my scraps get used, even the smallest ones, for applique eyes or teddy bear ears and paws. I wish there was a very easy way to save them all neatly, they do get messed up when I search for a particular colour!!!
Only 2 weeks to go! Didn't that year go by quickly?
wow !!! beautiful and so lovely work :) i really like your good idea so much.Thank for sharing.
We got that cool down earlier this week, but we are now heading into the true summer temps, hot and scorching hot. Happy stitching this week. Looks like you've got a good start on your scrappy projects.
Good luck with your three "c" problems.......car, coffee maker and camera! I'm looking forward to seeing the flimsy for your rosettes. How big will I be?
I’m looking forward to seeing your rosettes sewn into a quilt. It’s going to be a fun quilt.
Love your hexagons' colors....I am jumping on board with Sarah this month....hugs, Julierose
Beautiful hexie block. Can you believe it's almost a year since you started?
LOL laughing about repairing your camera by smashing it!!
Can't wait to see the hexagons all together!
It certainly doesn't feel like summer the past few days.
