Scrappy Saturday

In case you were wondering why I am not showing my September Squared Away blocks, this is why...
at the beginning of this RSC BOM  project, the very first block was supposed to be light blue. And for some unknown reason, I made my first blocks dark blue. So then September rolled around and these blocks are supposed to be dark blue, but I had already made dark blue blocks in the first month. So what to do?
There is one month left in the project so I decided to wait to see what the remaining colour will be, and then determine what colour to make my September blocks.... maybe light blue, dark green, brown, or grey.


And in the meantime, I made a dark blue Circle of Squares block while sewing at my friend Gayle's house. 

I took a "glamour shot" of the block in her beautiful  backyard. Do you see the cute little knitted monster (sitting right above my block) that Gayle was making while I was sewing? 
So cute!

It was very relaxing to sew beside the fountain and hear the calming water sounds. It was almost like being at a spa!


Here are all the blocks on the design wall. The new dark blue block is second from the left on the top row. I think I'll make 4 more blocks for this project. I'm trying not to see these blocks as ferris wheels because that makes my creative brain want to add pieces to the design to make the blocks look like wheels. I hope that thought goes away!

Anyway, that's where things are at with my RSC projects this week. To see what others are working on, hop over to the weekly link up.

I love your block, even if it not new, and the little knitted monster too ;) Beautiful spot for photos! Your design wall looks very good

Maybe your circles of squares can be people sitting at a meeting and not Ferris wheels. No need to add spokes if the center is a "table". A78mandel at yahoo dot com

Another really pretty and fun RSC quilt in the making.
Repeat after me, "These are NOT Ferris wheels, these are NOT Ferris wheels, these are NOT Ferris wheels..." Keep going until I tell you to stop. :)

I would be tempted to quilt the lines that would turn your blocks into Ferris Wheels. Whatever you decide to do, they're great!
