I hope I can keep this momentum all year!! I have so many things on my to-do list and I feel I'm off to a great start!!
I will be linking to SoScrappy for the RSC today, so be sure to check out all the blogs posted there, as well as Angela's, to see everyone's progress this past week. I am done with my blues for the month. Not to say I DON'T have any more blues, just that after making my 26 blocks, I have to move on to other projects!!
I made the Blue Flower block this week. Connie, at Freemotion by the River, has the free pattern and tutorial. I thought about making 2 per month, but decided one was good!! I hand appliqued the flower and am happy with the way it turned out. I will change the flowers a bit in each block that I make.
Well, I added a couple of other blocks to the challenge! I need to put blinders on because I want to make everything I see!! I started out making 12 8" strings blocks, then 6 9" Pinwheel blocks and Connie's 12 1/2" Flower Block. I added That Thirties Thing from Quilters Cache in order to use up more strings!! I made 3 this week.
Then I found Centennial at Wombat Quilts. This is the cutest 6 1/2" block!! I stopped at 4!!! This is also paper pieced.
And here they are on point!
Aren't they the cutest!!
I tried to print out the patterns using telephone book pages. Please, don"t try this at home!! What a mess!! I got crumpled paper with ink ALL over!! I had a super large tablet of blank newspaper paper, so I cut those down to use. And I also used some artist tracing paper. Love that stuff. So easy to tear off.
Oh, and I'm not done yet!! I made this for my nephew's truck for his birthday.
It's a bag that holds a plastic trash bag!! I found it here. Sorry, I was in a hurry, so I didn't get the best pics!!
That's it for this now. Thanks for stopping by!
........Sew till next time.......
