Monday Making

The yellow quilt was put into flimsy stage over the weekend.  I had made the blocks during the RSC18 month of 'yellow' and rediscovered them in my attempt to find something else.  I had a lot of low volumn yellows that just didn't fit into anything over so long, now they are all playing together in this pretty quilt.  The sashing is a repro 30's print that had been on the shelf for over a year - it got to set off these blocks making for a nice framing.

The Bonnie Hunter Mystery components went into a star block that was framed with some left over Kona White.  It got the same sashing finish as the yellow quilt.  The aqua art deco print was cut-offs from a backing - just enough for the sashing with a few pieces added to my barrel system.

There were a few geese components left, so I made a mini to use them up.  Used up the last of that Kona scrap and pulled a left over binding piece from the binding drawer.  The binding needs stitching down, but close to a finish.

The rest of the mystery components - I could have saved them for another play day, but I tossed all of it.  When something doesn't inspire and you just are tired of it all, it is OK to either pass it on or get rid of it.

Today I want to finsh up the center panel of the Temecula Quilt Co 
'Summer Scraps' quilt.  The dark lozenges need one more flip corner and then paired with a lite lozenge.  As you can see, I don't have too many more to finish up and then I can arrange the color pairs when I am happy and get those into rows - then rows together.  That shouldn't take too long as long as a fat cat doesn't decide to nap here.  Then I want to start on the next sections - Broken Dishes.

Today is the first day of the Fabulous Freebies Hop hosted by Joan @ Moose Stash Quilting.  Bloggers sharing their favorite free tutorial - either on of their own or one from another resource.  List of Blogs:

I really like that art deco sashing on the second quilt, very pretty. You've been busy (as usual). Congrats on all the progress and near finishes.

The two flimsiest are great. I like that they are a softer palette.
