SUNDAY - I realize this is freshly finished UFO quilt top is not PURPLE...
Look, Alycia... PLAID!!! Link takes you to Finished (Or Not) Friday. :o))
Currently 39 x 47, so it still needs some additional work to stretch it out a bit.
My purchase at Quiltville Inn was the Gypsy Sip n Snip. I couldn't resist bringing one of the nifty cup holder/trash can (and clip holder) combos which adorned each workstation back for my own studio:
While I was away, the heavy machinery multiplied on the lot next door:
FIVE pieces of equipment can't dampen the excitement of getting to mark off a Bucket List item.
MONDAY - Work was followed by a trip to the grocery store
TUESDAY - Work was followed by my monthly Evening Quilt Bee meeting:
I nearly forgot to take a photo!!
WEDNESDAY - Wonderful Wednesday
I've been building a PURPLE quilt this month. It's been a really fun RSC project:
Wonder of wonders, you could actually see the dent this has made in my PURPLE scrap basket.
It went from being bulging and overflowing to only half full!!! I'd call that a success.
Zoom with LeeAnna @ Not Afraid of Color
This afternoon's big adventure regarding the construction site next door???
Delivery of the largest wood chipper I've ever seen...
The longest piece of machinery (presumably a log sizer/cutter) blocking our driveway:
THURSDAY - Work was followed by a quick stop at the grocery store and the pharmacy (because I couldn't POSSIBLY go just ONE time in a week!) Sigh...
I did some sewing, but I'll share more about that next week
FRIDAY - ABC (Table) SCRAPS Challenge Link Party (It's open until Tuesday night, so there's still plenty of time for you to create an entry using the Y and/or N letter prompts or the color PURPLE!)
Today was my day off and I was excited to be able to attend Knit Group, but it was canceled this morning. :o((
That gave me the opportunity to focus on one of my SHOULD DO items:
I worked on the layout for the next T-Quilt.
SATURDAY - It's LINK PARTY day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge! I hope you will join me in visiting Angela @ So Scrappy to see what the RSC Quilters have been up to this week. She hasn't posted the link yet, but I'll add it when she does.
My contribution to the party...
One scrappy PURPLE project was completed while on retreat last weekend. I'm not sure whose Orphan Block this was, but it came out of a "Bag of Joy" from my friend Diane:
Update: The blocks were the extras that my friend Diane shared from a top made in a class
on Mile a Minute Quilts. She was happy to see it finished table topper. It was a fun project to work on!
I quilted it (thanks to Stacy for serving as my Design Consultant!), trimmed it into a tumbler shape to preserve the quilting, and bound it with a fabric from my (gifted) stash of Autumnal prints. This cute turtle fabric was on the back and the turtles are red-violet in color...
But I only have these scraps left, as I gave the remainder of the one-yard cut to Tiffany over the weekend once I cut off the amount needed for the backing. (Not sure how I missed getting a photo!)
When Carol commented on the unusual shape of the little quilt on Tuesday and said how much she liked it, I promptly gifted it to her because I know how much she enjoys decorating for Halloween:
Here is the photo that Carol took of the backing fabric when I couldn't recall what I had used:
Until next time...
