Last Saturday in Orange....

I did manage to get a little bit of sewing in this week. I have 8 of 9 blocks made for the row along quilt. Not sure how I miscounted when cutting but I should be able to squeeze one more in today.


I added a couple 16 patch blocks to help even out some color options from last year's blocks. I failed on my OMG this month... did not even touch it... maybe I'll try and get these into a colorful Goodnight Irene quilt top in May?


I keep looking at the pile of dresden plates I made last year... I think I will start to appliqué them to the background by the color each month. I hope to cut the background and hand stitch that orange one down tonight. Maybe I'll cut 4 backgrounds and cover the colors we have hit so far this year?


Hopefully I will get some sewing time in today to finish up some orange scraps... lots of birds in the air parts are waiting to be sewn together....and to make my purple butterfly's. I have them cut out... and ready to sew.

First up.... weeding the garden before it gets way too hot! 90 degrees and humid.... I guess summer is here. At least I have my nice quiet air conditioned house to look forward to this afternoon. Greg is taking the kids to Grandma and she is putting him to work trimming in her yard for a little bit. If only I didn't have this lovely sore throat and cough....

  4. Great orange blocks! Enjoy your stitching time indoors today - those rainbow 16-patches look so inviting. After a week of rain, I get to go out and work in the yard. Amazonian weeds sprang up overnight!

  11. Love your Good Night Irene blocks. I am also working on those blocks, but in scraps. I packed them to take with me next week to see if I can get enough blocks done for the quilt top. I've been making them as my leader ender blocks for the past 2 years or so.
