I now have a stack of thirty-six orange squares waiting for their accompanying thirty-six white squares. Once the cutting is done, the block assembly will go quickly as everything can be chain pieced.
I also prepped a good-size batch of leader-ender spools - as in Bonnie Hunter's Spoolin' Around challenge. I used up a bunch of 1 1/2 inch orange scrap strips with this prep work! I have a huge box full of pre-cut 1 1/2 inch strips in all colors and I also dug through those and pulled strips of the right length for the spool blocks. This leader-ender project could generate a huge number of blocks from my scraps - good thing they're only 3 inch blocks!
I also did some Granny Square blocks in orange.
I've been making Granny Square blocks as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. These may be my last Granny Square blocks, even though there are still 3 months left in the challenge. I don't really enjoy making these blocks and I'm happy with the block colors I've completed so far. If I start assembling a quilt from the blocks I already have, I might be able to gift it to the recipient by the end of the year. I have been planning to give the finished quilt to my niece, who just announced she and her hubby are expecting their first child in March. This quilt is for her though, and I'll come up with something else for the little one!
Time to stop computering and go do some quilting. I hope everyone has an opportunity to play with fabric and do some sewing today! When you're taking a break, do go check out what the rest of the Rainbow Scrap quilters are up to!
