Weekend wrap up...

Teal is the color over at the RSC Challenge. I saw this cutie on Wednesday when we went to Crayola on a half day of school. This is Turque.

I pulled out some teal and blue blocks.....cats from a few years ago. They are starting to be sewn up into a top. I am planning to make 4 scrappy spool blocks for the corners and 12 appliqué mice to go around the edge of the quilt. Each of the cat blocks are 8 inches so it will be a nice small quilt.

Now for the slow stitching. I finished one of my 1857 blocks this week and started another. One leaf got appliquéd down last night and hopefully the other 2 will get stitched down this evening.

  5. Your finished 1857 block could be a modern block. It's amazing to realize the tiny hexagons have been around for so long. It turned out very nice.
