SUNDAY - I spent the day writing blog posts, but I do have something BLUE to share. Preeti @ Sew Preeti Quilts recently posted her Picket Star tutorial. It wouldn't leave me alone! It kept calling and calling me. Finally, I gave it a try last night:
... And ended up with an Oops! I should know better than to try to sew right before bedtime. The block isn't supposed to be like this:
After engaging the assistance of my seam ripper, I have a lovely Picket Star block. Just THREE more blocks and I will have a good sized quilt for a small baby:
MONDAY - I thought I was DONE with Light/Bright BLUE, but yesterday's Q.3 challenge release for the Quarantine Limited Edition of Project Quilting changed my mind. This lovely linen toile will (somehow) fit into my plan:
TUESDAY - Progress on my niece's wedding quilt:
I saved the teal, turquoise, and green strips for another day, but cut out all of the BLUE pieces:
WEDNESDAY - Last night I put together this little wall hanging using some Light BLUE (mixed with other shades of) scraps:
I played with a few other scraps of Light/Bright BLUE, but will share those with you in the coming days.
THURSDAY - This week's ZoomBEE went well. Nearly every member was in attendance. It's SEW good to see everyone!
Blog writing and playing with these scraps happened after the meeting:
While I know who the recipient will be, I'm not exactly sure where this piece is heading, yet. Only time will tell...
FRIDAY - It's a new month. With the arrival of May, a new Color of the Month is in order. Alas, Angela appears to be holding out on us.
What's a quilter to do?!?!
I continued with BLUE:
Angela announced the Color of the Month for May:
Color me SHOCKED!!! I was really expecting (and truly hoping for) a warm color this time around. Oh, well! Like I told Angela in my comment on her post, "... No worries, though. I have a SCRAP ton of Dark GREEN!"
Honestly, I don't even have to dig them out. They are already littering half of my cutting area! I guess that means a Dark GREEN Quilted Scrap Basket is in my future.
Oh! I also released a new Design Floor Friday post.
SATURDAY - The weekend is here. It's time for Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge LINK PARTY over at So Scrappy. I'm SEW looking forward to seeing what all of my RSC Quilter friends have been up to this week.
Here are the Dark GREEN scraps that I will be playing with this month:
My hand is included in the photo above to show the stack of scraps is taller than hand-height. That means that I have more than a 6" deep pile of Dark GREEN scraps to play in this month. Yep! I've got plenty to keep me occupied for the foreseeable future.
Until next time...
