Scrappy Saturday

Although I have been sewing blocks every day for the past 2 weeks for my Laundry Basket mystery project, I am still behind. Today I finished the flying geese for step #10, which means that today I'm only 2 steps behind! I made some colour errors on this step, but that's okay... it's a scrappy quilt and it will all work out fine.

It's a long weekend here (Victoria Day) so I hope to get in  more sewing time to catch up on the next 2 steps. This is what the centre of the quilt is looking like. All the blocks are made from donated FQs and scraps.

In between sewing these blocks, my leader-ender project has been Easy Breezy blocks from last July's Quiltville challenge.

Here are the most recently sewn red blocks. I love the block on the top left with the fussy cut birds.

And here is the pile of easy breezy blocks so far. Almost enough for a quilt! I plan to keep making blocks until the end of June and be ready for the next challenge which will be posted in July.

Laundry Basket mystery is turning a beautiful quilt. I am saving all the instructions for maybe one day. Your blocks look so well together.
Love also your pile of easy breezy blocks.

The mystery is looking nice. I don't know how you even keep up as well as you do. I can't even keep up with a block a week!
Your Easy Breezy blocks look like a beautiful slice of a rainbow!

This is my first glance at the Mystery. LOVE it! Glad you have been busy leader/ender-ing, Kathy. You are making such good progress in RED!!

I'm downloading the instructions. Maybe I'll get around to piecing this quilt someday. Your fabrics look very nice. What size Easy Breezy blocks are you piecing. The blocks I'm piecing for the RSC finish at 8". Happy stitching!
