It's been a while

New fabric

The blue is more aqua and the dots are a copper metallic color and feel. I love the pink and yellow print. So cheery.

Happy Hump Day...

What I've been working on

Mostly I've been procrastinating, but I did make all 121 of these blocks.  (Working early on the H2H quilt for Happy Chemo.) Hands to Help Comfort Quilt Challenge starts on Sunday (tomorrow).

I'm calling it a "Wonky Wedge". I tried to use a limited pallet of blue, purple and green.
Below is the first 4 blocks sewn together (upper left). Blocks always look better after being pressed and sewn together, don't you think so?

Sew I have been using my green scraps...  This quilt is easy and uses your scraps, even strips work.

 Close ups are a few of my favorite prints.

Blocks are made from a 5" square of white (121 are a mix of two different prints of white on white and  some off white), then sew varying size and shape triangles onto each.  Somehow I made some bloopers that went the wrong way. I figured it is just another part of "wonky". 

We are supposed to get a snow storm starting this evening, but the weather people can't decide if  it will be 1" or 8".  We will see. We do have enough already. I'm tired of shoveling, and I only helped a couple of times.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Squirrel quilt progress and one yellow butterfly

I love the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but I haven't participated with much reliability.  For the month of February I've made one yellow butterfly... today.

I haven't much in the way of yellow scraps.

I've been making these wonky 5" squares in blues, greens and purples - mostly from scraps. I thought I'd set them as stars, but there aren't the right way points,, I made them like these. I do like them all pointing in the same direction.

I still have a bunch to add to the design wall. I'm thinking this will be a H2H quilt.

I'm still waiting for an address to send out the baby quilts.... no charge, but I can't just wish them there.

Hugs to my Sis in Florida.  Thanks for the Hope you provide with the Facebook updates... Today we had a plumber here to snake our sewer that backed up.  Messy business.  At least I can do laundry now.

Hugs to my quilty friends, too.  Thanks for stopping by to read my little blog.

Here are the roses my hubby bought  for me, and we went out to lunch, too.

I made us both mug rugs.

  It was  an overcast day, but today we're having sunshine!  Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day,too.

Looks Like a Road Map

Where am I going?

Maybe another view will help you....

Here's the other side of the map.  I've got 4 - 3" outer "sky" colored borders cut and ready as soon as I pull off the paper.
Now how to quilt it?

Leaving the paper peeling until   TV time tonight.


New Fabric - New Outlook

It's been a looooong time since I bought anything, (fabric 2 years maybe) but there was this sale at Hancock's of Paducah ...(batiks for $4.99 and $5..99 per yard - full yards required).

 The camera didn't pick up the bits of pink and lavender in this piece.  It's mostly a tan and grey on a white background. It's a bit more pronounced in person.

I've been needing some lights - I want to make the Depression block and some other patterns that depend on light lights, and my stash is mostly bright saturated colors.
Happy Thursday,

Squirrel Project

You know I've been working on some little airplanes for a baby quilt... well, I got a new pattern from Claudia Hasenbach .  She designs really great

I enjoyed making this one. 

We've got some -5 temps in the forecast for this week. Hope you all are keeping warm.
