Yea me! We've had so much rain I haven't been able to get pictures of the last two finishes. Maybe we'll have some sunny weather soon and I'll be able to get some pictures.
Here's what I've been working on the last few days.
I had several quarter square triangles left over from Gridlock that I finished July of 2017. It was time to put them to use in something new. Of course, I didn't have enough so I made lots more and I suspect I have as many quarter square triangles left as I had when I started this project!
I chose the green fabric as it seemed to fit the plan and it made the quilt seem lighter. Except, I ran out before I got the quilt near the size I wanted it. Back to the stash to see what else I could put to use. Hum, the navy blue with little white designs might work. What was truly serendipitous was I was able to come up with a layout where I could use all 17 of the green squares. I may have enough of the blue to bind it once it gets quilted. I still need to sew the rows together. Then I hope to find some backing from stash. It will be donated to a nursing home via my Powhatan guild.
Check out that quarter square triangle block on the top left. See that apple fabric? I bought about 5 yards of it a good 25 years ago. I used it on the front of quilts and back of quilts since I first got it. Sharon and I made at least 1 if not 2 quilts together and used some of it. I was surprised that I had any left but here it is, again. I'm not even sure if this is the end of it or not! It might be in a scrap bag somewhere. Talk about the fabric that just keeps on coming.
I had a good week goal-wise but several of my goals were things I really wanted to do.

Pat and I went to a couple of Potluck dinners last week. I thought this little rice crispy dessert was so cute I had to take a picture to share. I have no idea how the maker got the rice crispys so red but I loved the face. Smile is half of an Oreo, nose is a peanut M&M, whites of the eyes are upside down white candy melts. No idea what the blacks of the eyes were. Only sad part of this whole cute dessert was -- yuck I didn't like the taste of the red rice crispy. Are there strawberry flavored marshmallows? Or maybe just the food coloring didn't taste great. It was probably better that I didn't eat it. But I thought my grands would have loved it.
That's it for now. Here are my regular linky party link ups. Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Moving It Forward, and Main Crush Monday. I hope you will spend some time to see what people are working on these days.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
