Saturday - blue rainbow scrap challenge!

I got to sew this week!
I was able to get my birds in the air blocks done for the month. I think they came out pretty cute!



Then I got to start on the letters yesterday during nap time. I am through all the standard ones and ready to move onto the slanted ones. I just follow the book for the capital letters. I will go back and make some lowercase ones for Aidan's name. I do need to add backgrounds to even out the letters and make them all the same size.



Then crazy me decided to start a new quilt - a baby quilt. My employees daughter had a baby girl on Thursday evening. I am going to use the Baby Bunting pattern from Quilters cache and have picked out the following fabrics for the 12 bunting blocks. I have been looking at this pattern for a couple of years but have never had reason to make it. I think it will turn out cute and it will use all fabrics from my stash. Got to love that. I just need to find a background with enough to make the quilt. Considering I found out last week that she was going to be a grandma, I think if the baby gets the quilt in the next month I'll be doing good.



Go on over to Angela's blog and see what others are up to on this scrappy blue Saturday.

  2. Such pretty bluebirds!
    And I am so inspired by your letters. I haven't thought to construct them this way...and wait to add the background fabric.

  5. If there's an RSC next year I'm definitely making some BITA blocks - watching yours unfold has been such a treat! The pieced letters are looking good - can't wait to see them as the border on Aidan's quilt!
