Hello! I had a short week with Friday off of work, so of course I planned on sewing all day and evening. I even got out of cooking dinner by going to a local meat market that has $5 sandwiches on Friday and getting some other goodies for the rest of the weekend. I signed up for Friday Night Sew In (FNSI):
My day began with the second clue posted for the Scrap Dance Two Step. Here is the link:
I made all of the hourglass blocks as directed. So far, I am keeping up with Carole's mystery!
Next up, I had spotted this beauty on Instagram the other day and knew I needed to make one. Can you say squirrel? I have no girl baby quilts in my stash, so between my overflowing scrap bins and that I already had the block pattern in an old magazine--I had to begin! By the way, the block pattern is in Quilt Sampler Spring/Summer 2014.
I dug in and started making a teal/aqua version for my FNSI and the RSC17.
I also cut everything for a purple block last night and sewed it together this morning. For the backgrounds, I am using whites and low volumes from that scrap bin too. I just finished cutting out a red block. The blocks are 15 inches big, so all it will take is nine blocks for a good sized baby quilt. I am thinking some straight line quilting and a minky backing will be perfect once I get the blocks done. This could end up being a weekend finish with Monday off too!
