This week begins with Angela's Color of the Month announcement:
... With accents of PINK!!!
Photo shown is from Angela's So Scrappy blog.
SUNDAY afternoon, I thought that I might make one more BLUE block before switching to the NEW colors. SEW... I present ONE Rainbow Crumb in shades of BLUE with a touch of purple:
Then I realized that you might want to see my Month in Review since it's the finial day of BLUE month.
It's short and sweet, just FIVE blocks sewn for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge :
Add in a sprinkling of THREE (3) Rainbow Crumb blocks for good measure:
And you've got the entirety of January's block production, which totals TWENTY-FIVE (25) made during BLUE month:
On MONDAY morning, I was following a few of the links from last week's LINK PARTY and noticed Raewyn at Stitching Farm Girl shared a photo of her 2 sizes of 9-Patch blocks side by side. I thought I that you might like to see what a contrast my Tiny Nines are compared with the blocks for Dr. Pete's Wedding quilt. THIS photo shows the difference between my Tiny Nines made from 1" and the ones made of 3.5" squares:
Let me tell you...
After a year of making Tiny Nines, blocks made from 3.5" squares seem HUGE!!!!!
On MONDAY afternoon, I asked myself what IF?!?! What if I treat my Tiny Nines like Angie at Quilting on the Crescent did??? Just LOOK at her lovely quilt:
But THEN... I thought about that photo that I posted this morning and had another idea...
Only time will tell!
I thought that I might be able to decide after getting my nails done...
In chocolate BROWN with a heart-shaped accent of PINK.
TUESDAY afternoon, I noticed that my daffodils are STILL blooming!!
That burst of color inspired me to head back into the sewing room to create ONE Rainbow Crumb block, made from more of Diane's scraps... including some from our recent UFO Sew-In:
On WEDNESDAY, when I should have been at physical therapy for my shoulder, I was busy working on some RSC Sewing. I prepped a Tiny Nine...
... And completed ONE Slab Block in BROWN with a touch of PINK:
Bummer!! Physical Therapy seems to be hurting more than it's helping. :o((
THURSDAY, is my day for Quilt Group. This week I discovered that the best indie fabric printer on the net is a REAL place that's not far from home. Our hostess arranged a tour for us to:
Our Tour Guide took a photo upon arrival (before we could forget and leave without one):
For sewing enthusiasts there's also Sprout Patterns, where there's no need for paper patterns, as they print the pattern in the Spoonflower fabric of your choice for a custom project:
When I got home, I cut out the rest of S's shirts:
SATURDAY is the day that I join the LINK PARTY over at Angela's So Scrappy blog. Won't you join me as I take a tour around BlogLand? I'm looking forward to seeing what all of the RSC Quilters have been working on this week!
Until next time...
