BUSY IN BETWEEN
This week has been a mishmash of different projects. I officially finished my teal blocks, so I decided to work on some bigger projects.
I now have 12 of my Kaffe Fasset squares done for my Summer quilt. One pic did not turn out well, but here are the other two new ones. And look at the featured colors in them. RED! Well, it is an accent color, but the amount varies in each block. None of my pics show the true intense colors that KF combines.
Each one seems to be my favorite for different reasons. On the first I really was awed by the purple and red large block, along with the intense turquoise. In the second, I was delighted that the red polka dot strip fit in so well.
I have also been working on the Ad Hoc Improv Quilts quarterly challenge run by Ann and Kaja. The first challenge is to use the Chinese coins pattern in an improv way. Here is what I’m working on, a wall hanging which is only partly finished but has special meaning for me. I’m challenging myself to work with the dark colors.
You can check out the Ad Hoc Improv Quilter at Ann’s blog, Fret Not Yourself, or at Sew Slowly with Kaja.
The main thing I’ve been busy with is quilting my Farm Boy quilt. Once I switch to my walking foot for that, it is too much trouble with screws and shaking hands to put it on and off. I’m doing the binding but am not finished, so I will save that for Angela’s finishing Linky.
What is RED saying to you? I’ve been saving stash for a veteran’s quilt and this would be a good month to work on that.
