I'm trying to be better at updating my blog on my progress and projects. On my last post, I showed the 4 quilts that were in the flimsy stage with the Bear Claw sandwiched and ready for quilting! Since then, I have finished it.
(with the exception of a photo shoot and a label)
I also sandwiched my Little Spool Quilt and have done about 1/2 of the quilting.
I gave myself permission to work a little piecing on the 2018 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. January's color is light blues. I'm doing a Flying Geese block and some Scrappy Plus blocks.
For this block I'm using this tutorial by Color Girl Quilts.
For the Plus blocks I cut 3 1/2" squares and 3 1/2" x 9 1/2" rectangle and put it together in the basic 9 patch method. Instead of making the middle row 3 squares since I was using the same fabrics I choose to use a rectangle...saves on seam allowances.
I don't have a layout in mind yet or how many I will need of each. Once we get in a few more months of colors I will figure that out.
I finally gathered all the fabrics for the Regatta quilt by Home Sewn By Us.
Here is my color choices.
I need to label the order and start cutting. I'm a little behind but very excited to start this one!
I am still waiting on my fabric order for the Temperature Quilt by NeedleMom.
I have made a spread sheet to keep up with the daily highs and lows for my hometown.
