Rainbow Sampler in Teal

This week I managed to make three rainbow sampler blocks.
Spool, Butterfly and Soul Searching.
And then she posted another one! Here is Anvil. I love these fabrics. I picked them up last Saturday at Nana's Closet in Brooksville, FL. 


I also had cut some 2.5 inch squares to make a 16 patch block in between sewing other things.

Now it is time to lay out the Kaleidoscope quilt on the living room floor and figure out the final layout so I can cut the rest of the triangles and start getting that one put together. It is much easier to do that when no one is home to 'help'.!

It has been a long week - when someone in the household is sick it just throw's the whole week off! This time it was Greg who came down with a flu bug on Wednesday morning. That left me to drop kids to school Wednesday and Thursday and then work at the store, getting there just in time to open both days. Then home to make sure homework was done and tuck them into bed. Today he headed into work and hopefully will last the day. I'm going to do some much needed sewing to get the above done and relax a bit, then...... pick up kids and run errands. We have a birthday party tomorrow that we need a gift for and Aidan has a leprechaun trap to make for school on Monday. I am scheduled to work on Sunday but we hopefully will both have tomorrow off for a family day before the hectic pool season starts down here. My hope is that I can sneak off to the gym first thing Saturday and Sunday and get a much needed workout in. It lost the coin flip today to some relaxing sewing on the Kaleidoscope quilt.

Saturday head on over to  SoScrappy on Saturday morning and see what other aqua and teal projects are being worked on.

  1. Absolutely love your blocks and the fabrics! Hoping everyone stays well in your family. We've had a week similar here - DH had a reaction to a biopsy that lasted days. All seems well now. ~Jeanne

  3. Your teals are so pretty! Sounds like an even busier time for you than usual. Hope the sickness stops with one this time.

  4. I agree illness brings stress into a household. I love your anvil block! Hope next week is better, I sure am hoping for a more normal week, but somehow I doubt that will happen.

  6. Very pretty teal blocks.

    Hope you find some time for stitching. It's so manic when a spouse is sick and you have kids. It makes a crazy schedule flip right into insane. Glad your guy is feeling better.

  9. You've managed to sneak in some time to complete some lovely teal blocks. Hope the flu bug season comes to an end soon. Busy times but don't forget to save a few minutes for yourself to squeeze in that workout. You'll feel invigorated and thank yourself for making it out to the gym.

  11. You did a good amount of work done on your teal/aqua blocks considering the illness in the house. I can't think of a family that doesn't have some kind of illness being passed around. Hope you don't get it.
