Feeling Grey....

The last month of color for the rainbow scrap challenge and the grey to black color way was chosen. I was a little nervous thinking I didn't have much of this. I actually found some grey bits hanging out in the stash. Yea!

I spent the morning walking through the Ocala, FL quilt show and it is amazing some the applique and hand quilting on those quilts. Some very talented ladies are in that guild. I'll do a separate post on that next week with my purchases. Must help out the economy, right? Thanks to MIL I had a bunch of birthday cash to spend today.

After I got home to a nice quiet house I decided to do a bunch of prep work. I have all my remaining pinwheel blocks all cut out and marked for sewing.

 I have my next Midget block all cut out and ready for hand piecing and I selected the fabrics for the Grandmothers choice block for the week.

I did go ahead and put one pinwheel together..... I think it came out pretty cute. Of course sewing with the grey got me thinking..... a blue and grey quilt would look really neat. =) Next week it will be decision time with these pinwheel quilts. Time to think of borders..... I've been making little pinwheels with the extra bits thinking they would look good going around the quilt. The other idea is just strips of different colors going around the pinwheels....... Lots to think about.

Head on over to SoScrappy and see what others are working on.
