Today was one of those Saturdays when I was in serious need of some fabric therapy. I did a lot of traveling for work this week, and that left me too tired to do much of anything in the evenings. Happily, I was able to spend most of today sewing, and getting lots of good things accomplished!
I'm still plugging along on some Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. This month's color is teal (and similar variations), so I pulled some 1.5 inch strips and pieced two 49-patch blocks.
I'm still not sure what size quilt project I'll ultimately make with these. They're only 7 inches, so I'll either need to make a lot more, or stop soon and make a small quilt.
Last year's block was made with random 1.5 inch squares; the Trip Around the World/strip method is much easier!
I've been feeling the need to finish up a number of languishing projects - so most of my current stitching focus has been on moving things along.
One of last year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects was making Windblown Wishes blocks from Diane D. Knott's Scrap Quilt Secrets book. After I assembled my blocks, I took a little detour from Diane's pattern when it came to the borders. I decided to make a half-square triangle border, again using rainbow colors.
Today I added a narrow all-white border and stitched all the HSTs together for the next border. If I'm lucky, I'll get to sew the borders to the top tomorrow. I think I'll add a wider white border after the HSTs to finish things up.
I haven't been blogging much over the past several weeks, so I was surprised to discover Blogger had disabled the emailed comments feature.
I've switched to moderating all comments, so at least I'll get an email notification when comments are posted. I do enjoy all the sharing that takes place via blogging comments, so I hope this helps keep the conversation alive!
*Edit: moderated comments are not getting sent via email, either.
There's more Rainbow Scrap Challenge inspiration at the weekly RSC link-up, so please stop by and see what other quilters are up to!
