In light of my family-heavy Friday, I had no qualms about sequestering myself in my sewing room this weekend. Not only did I do a major re-organization and cleaning in there (my brother is spending the night tonight, and since my sewing room is also my home office and my guest room, it needed attention before it was ready for a guest), but I was also able to move four projects forward.
On Ringo Lake now has 28 completed blocks:
|22 left to go. They go together quickly since I've already made all the components, but the monotony of the color scheme slows me down. Yes, it is scrappy, but I'm used to scrappy with all colors of the rainbow, not just four colors.|
|I am LOVING this! Definitely making it big enough for me to use!|
|5" blocks - I LOVE small blocks! They are just so cute to me!|
My question, though, is this: Since the blocks are so scrappy, should the QST blocks be scrappy, too? I mean, instead of using one constant neutral and one constant navy blue (although it looks black in the photo, doesn't it?), should I use a variety of neutrals and blues for the alternate blocks? If you have an opinion, please chime in!
And finally, today I rearranged my Starburst quilt a bit so I can start to quilt it. When I finished the flimsy in October 2016, I noticed in my photograph that the yellow and green blocks in the bottom right corner should probably be swapped, but ugh! Unstitching? Yuck!
So I just let it sit. And sit. And sit. But the baby I've decided to give it to is due in less than two weeks, so it is time to stop sitting and start quilting. So I swapped the green and yellow blocks (in the lower left corner in this photo).
|It's been packed up for months - excuse the wrinkles.|
Tuesday is also the day that I'll be choosing recipients for my 5 quilt projects that are up for adoption. If you haven't checked out the quilt adoption items at Cynthia's blog, be sure to hop over there - there's some fun stuff up for grabs for free!
