Friday Night Sew-In and Scrappy Saturday
A couple of quilting friends came over for a hastily organized FNSI. It's the long weekend here, so I was happy that anyone was in town to come and sew with me. I have decided that sewing with friends is good for "whatever ails ya"!
A full evening of sewing last night got me to the end of step #5 of the Sunny Side Quilt Along. It seems like 18 blocks is an odd number to need, but I double checked the pattern last night, and that is the correct number. I am using my collection of Kansas Troubles fabric, and think it will be perfect for this pattern.Today I am cutting for the alternate star blocks in blues and green.
And in between sewing these chain blocks, I was able to
finish 9 leader/ender Alamo Star blocks for the rainbow scrap challenge. Looks like I've had a hard time giving up the green month since all the bright blues seem to be getting paired up with green scraps :) I will try to throw in some other contrasting colours for the last week of the blue month.
Hop over to Soscrappy to see the other blue projects being made this week. And feel free to join in at any time - start organizing your scraps and getting them into quilts!
