It's Scrappy Saturday and I'll be sewing up some orange scraps as leader-ender blocks along with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilters. These are my most recently finished Alamo Star blocks that will be add to my collection. I like the variety of low, medium and high contrast blocks.
I would like to announce the winner of the draw for the free patterns from Jacquelynne Steves. There were 48 comments on the giveaway blog post, and the random number generator picked # 27, who was Laura. Congratulations Laura and I hope you enjoying trying the quilt and the needlepunch patterns.
Today I'll be working on my Cozy Afternoon quilt with the Sew Along hosted by Jacquelynn. All my blocks are made and I'm working on the layout decisions for the quilt. Jacquelynne's pattern makes a quilt about 66" square and I wanted a smaller version. So I am changing the layout using only the embroidery blocks and some outside setting triangles.
I also need to make some fabric decisions since I don't have enough of any one fabric to make all the setting triangles. This is a terrible photo, but it does show some of the fabrics I am auditioning. By the end of the day, it will all be decided. Come join us over at the sew long if you have some sewing time on your schedule today.
