Instead of working on the umbrella last night I basted 11 orange hexagon flowers. I have 8 of the bright greens basted and all 21 pinks I did over the weekend. Anyone else get that urge to just continue on with one project and get it moving? I have yellow in the baggie next to the chair for tonight. Then... all the blues - light, dark, teals and dark green and browns. Hey, they might all be basted (or most of them) by the end of the month at the rate I am going on them! It will make it that much easier when their colors come up in the RSC Challenge....... or you know... for me to just go ahead and applique them to the black background!
I decided to join the Hand Pieced Quilt along over at Elm Street Quilts and Simple. Handmade. Everyday. I was thinking a gray background.... but there was not enough contrast so went with white on white and that part will probably be scrappy..... just like the pulling random blues from the stash for the colors.
It is slightly off the 6.5 inches so I'll have to fix that bottom right corner and get him all happy.
Now.... to resist the urge to pull the leftover Kansas Troubles Fabrics from the bottom drawer and make a few blocks in those fabrics......
This one will be one 6.5 inch block a week for 9 weeks released each Monday. It does make a small quilt..... so I might need to add blocks. We will see.
