December 11, 2014 and I am still blaming Carla! This of course is my 2 inch one that is pushed aside a lot when I get sidetracked with new hand work projects (midget appliqué blocks, then 1857 appliqué blocks)... then it comes out again. So far this month I have added 3.5 rounds and have the next round (#27) of blue all cut out - that is 108 squares to add. Each round add's 4 more squares to the count. I checked and it looks like Carla did 36 rounds and then the quarter square triangles to make it square. We will see how long this one stays out before I get sidetracked to do something 'new'!

I added one side of blue last night - it always amazes me how each row changes how this looks so drastically! I'm loving the blue. I wonder what purple Emily will select for the next row...
I have built up a nice callus on my left pointer finger (I don't use a thimble - I know I am a rebel!) so I should also pull out a chair and get working on quilting the 2.5 inch TATW quilt on the quilting frame. That started after this one.... and has made much more progress. Again... that one is all by hand too. I am still quilting on the first row of moss green, yellow and red. I started this one January 2015 and did one a month with the RSC Challenge.
Maybe I'll plan a good 30 minutes of hand quilting time on the TATW in the frame each day this week and then spend other time stitching some blue onto the ever growing trip quilt.
What will you be stitching today? Linking up with Kathy at Slow Sunday Stitching and Cynthia at Oh Scrap... since both of these are definitely scrappy quilts.
