Snow and wind caused the cancellation of my winter retreat with my friend last night. It was perfect quilting weather, but when the highways are closed, you are stuck at home. So I had to quilt by myself. Boo :(
I will console myself with all the progress I made with my scrap challenge block production.
Here are the newest Omigosh blocks made from 1" strips and squares - the smallest bits from the scrap bin. I don't know why I made an orange block! But I did, so there it is in the middle of all the blue blocks. Maybe I just needed to see some sunshine in amongst all that blueness?
I cut any scraps that are 1.5" or a bit bigger into 3" spool block components. Here are my latest spool blocks. I am sewing them into groupings of 4 which makes a 6.5" block.
All the batik scraps go into a different container, and the smallest ones get cut into pieces for my 2.25" Alamo Star blocks. Here are the 6 blue stars I made this month, sewing them as my leader/ender project.
I have had some fun with the block patterns that Angela has been posting. This week I added 2 versions of the block called "54 40 or flight". It is the same pattern as one of the blocks in the Celtic Mystery, so of course I was challenged to try it in half the size.
Hop over to SoScrappy and enjoy all the scrap postings!
