These are my last two January/February BOM blocks for the Love Blooms Here Quilt. I can't wait for the next issue of Quiltmaker to make some more wool felt blocks! I love creating a whole quilt from my stash of scraps.
This is Block 1 for this year's joinedatthehip sampler quilt. I am making mine with modern fabrics (chocolate, aqua, lime green, tomato red, and yellow) and plan on setting it vertically, so it will fit better in my sewing room.
And block 2...It is so much more pleasant making scrap quilts now that I have my scraps organized by color in bins under my cutting table!
Block 3 and the quilt they will be part of is below. The 6 inch blocks are a little more difficult that 12 inch ones! I really plan on challenging myself and only using fabrics I already have.
For my slow stitching during today's championship games, I will be embroidering adorable pink elephants with perle cotton. I need 12 for a baby quilt I am making. I have 5 done. They will finish 6 inches and be set between gray and pink nine patches. Hopefully, I can piece that next weekend!
I have tomorrow off from work, so I hope to make the most of my time in my sewing room!
