I have been making these Medallion Log Cabin blocks as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015, (here is info about that) http://superscrappy.blogspot.com/p/rsc12.html but of course I got impatient and could not just make blue (January), pink (February), and yellow (March) blocks. I decided to truly make the rainbow. I put the first of probably three lap quilts together on Sunday, but it took me until today to get outside in my mud boots for a picture. I kind of wish I had put an emerald green block in, but it is not worth taking it apart to get one in! These blocks are 12 inches and I have a tutorial for them here http://tanyaquiltsinco.blogspot.com/2015/01/scrappy-2015.html
Right now, this quilt measures 60 inches square, but once it is quilted and washed it will shrink a bit. I think it is the perfect size to use during chemo treatments. I am donating this to Happy Chemo as part of the Hands 2 Help 2015 Charity Challenge, here is a link for information http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/p/hands2help_11.html
I think I am going to quilt it organically with a wavy stitch about every half inch. I need to piece a backing, but this is a priority as I have enough blocks to make two more lap quilts.
I got my birds made for the Elephant Parade Quilt Along. I am totally caught up with that and awaiting the instructions for the flower blocks on Sunday. I am going to piece all the rows I can and hopefully have this top finished on Sunday.
Mine has more scrappy elephants, but I am going to set it and quilt it exactly the same way!
I am taking tomorrow off from work. I have a few errands to run and get to help my teenager get ready for a formal dance--maybe she will let me post a picture of her in her Barbie pink gown. (Fingers crossed!) I plan on spending a big part of my day and evening in my sewing room. I am participating in FNwF too http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com I will post my accomplishments this weekend. Have a great day!
