This week I worked on my final yellow blocks, two yellow Geese Migration blocks. They were difficult to find varieties of yellow to fill the blocks. The light and dark are not very different.
I really enjoy making these blocks each month. They will make a great rainbow.
The latest project that popped into my head was to use some scrappy pieces hanging around for too long. I had a container stuffed full of 2-inch repro strips and about 100 4-patch blocks in neutrals.
These reminded me of wilted salad and soggy crackers.
I decided to make 7-1/2 inch blocks using both pieces. I also had a large piece of navy with little flowers, plenty for sashing and borders. I got so excited about this project that I finished the 30 blocks in three days. Sarah came to lay them out on my apt hallway design floor. Not a bad use for the, tossed salad and crackers.
There are some yellows in there and I'm pleased that the collection looks softly colorful. This first,sample shows the added sashing.
This 50x60 top will go to Covered In Love at Kat and Cats for donation to dying patients and their family at the large hospital in Texas where she is a nurse. She has local volunteers who will quilt it.
