FAREWELL TO PINK
It’s been a nice month for pink, but I’m looking forward to finishing some of this year’s WIPs. Here is my final pink block, a Churn Dash to pair up with my Folded Box blocks, as an RSC18 project.
Speaking of finishes, I was surprised to see my Tossed Salad quilt on Kat & Cat’s post yesterday. It has been so nicely quilted, with a colorful backing made from donations by Sandra. It will be joining her Kat’s Covered In Love charity quilts for grieving families.
I’m really excited about a new squirrel project which hopped across my path from Jayne at Twiggy and Opal. She posted a tutorial for her X block, 16 inches and really easy to make. That evening I pulled out a charm pack of Kaffe Fassett cool colors, which I could not resist buying on sale recently. What? Again? This is the first block I pieced.
I changed my construction method to make it entirely with charm squares, including Toscana in coordinating colors and Bella white. These are the last three blocks that are pieced.
All in all, it has been an unexpectedly productive month for me, partly because I have a squirrel to thank.
I hope you have also had a scrappy productive week, at least a week full of good things. We seem to find those good things in unexpected times and places.
