In case you haven't noticed, it's summer vacation around this place!
What is this... my sixth post now in just a few days??? :D
My days have typically been starting around 5-6AM by CHOICE. And, if you've been following, gardening a'plenty lately.
But today, I sewed!! All. Day.
Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) color for June (light blue) was first on my agenda. Andee and I are teaming up this year, each creating an alternate block that will play nicely with each other. Take a look at her blue block. We are both very excited about this quilt coming together at the end of the year.
Then, I tackled getting caught up on all the colors so far this year; I only had purple left to do. I perceived myself being further behind than that.... hm! AND, I'm ahead of the ballgame, having done some red blocks back in January. How's that for ambition?!
Once done with the alternating block, I tidied up the cutting mat, taming scraps as I went. Rather than tucking some of the scraps off into their drawer hiding places, they were sewn up into some Scrappy Talkin' Turkey block centers.
Once these eight are finished, I'll have 16 blocks up on the design wall. As most projects in the past year or so, I have no plans other than...."let's make another block. And another. And another?" When I get tired of making them, they (usually?) get pieced into a quilt center and set aside for a time when border inspiration hits me. (THAT's not very often though) :(
Now.... perhaps some crochet.
