Saturday in blue.....

Sapphire blue was selected for this month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Since we were to sort into three piles - pastel, teal/greenish and sapphire I figured the dark blues should hit this month. Here are my two snails trail blocks in bright sapphire and navy blue.

And a shot of all my snails so far this year.


I also cut a little 2.5 inch square off the snails and added a few more bits from the bins to make this little blue 16 patch block. 

My niece decided on layout #1 from the last post so I'll need to start making the halves into blocks for the Kaleidoscope quilt but silly me..... I seem to have cut out 128  3.5x6.5 bricks to start a new quilt! It will be leftover homespun, check and solids in blue, green, maroon and brown with black and white/cream steps. The pattern for that is found over at Quiltville under the free patterns for bricks and stepping stones. I want mine a twin size so I'm adding an extra row to the bottom. 


Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday and see what other blue projects are being worked on this week. As for me - I have peels to cut out and a RWB QOV quilt to get quilted on Saturday after the kids miss nap time to attend a birthday party. Friday night we are headed about an hour north to meet up with my other sister who is down in Florida for a working weekend. We are meeting up at a pizza place so we can visit a bit and she can see the kids. I think they have changed a bit since she last saw them in September 2011.
Have a great weekend everyone.

  2. I love your snails trails! All of them are playing well together. Isn't it funny how new projects just insist on being started when you know there's something else that needs doing first?
