Another Sewing Day
This morning I got straight to work on my Earthtones blocks. When I left off yesterday, I had completed all of the tiny 4 patches and had them pressed and ready for some more sewing today. I have now sewn them into 16 patches (they measure only 4.5") and they are ready to be sewn together with the 4.5" 4 patches that I had made previously. I hope to spend a good part of tomorrow in my sewing room and sewing the last 42 blocks together is my first priority. Who knows, if all goes well, I may even get a start on sewing the top together.
Once I got that last step done I took a little break and worked on my blue blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I plan on making a rainbow quilt with the blocks that I make each month. Last month, I neglected to make my purple blocks but I will be making them soon. In preparation, I did pull out all of the 2.5 purple squares that I have in my bin and it shouldn't take too long to make the blocks. Why not hop on over to SoScrappy's blog and check out what everyone else was working on for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
