Set the airplane blocks from last year’s Rainbow Scrap. Didn't even look at this - no room on the design wall.
I have sworn off paper piecing for a while after I finished two new penguin blocks. I auditioned some sashing -- but no. So, I'll wait for a new quilt store to open next month to check for fabric there. This guy will be even cuter when he gets his eyes. He's suppose to have a belly button. I know he's hatched from an egg but Mary designed him and the other one I made as belly button penguins just for laughs.
Hum, I wonder if I actually finished a dog this week. Oops, nope that was last week. I did traced some Wonder Under to do a couple of appliquéd dogs. Maybe I'll actually make one or two this week.
I didn't take pictures of the 2 CP blocks I started. Last year the guild made blocks from the book The Anniversary Sampler by Donna Lynn Thomas. I started late but I think I've finished 13 and have 3 in progress now. Two need to be hand appliquéd down and one I just tried to do a quarter of it as it had "Y" seams. That went ok so I'll do the rest over this week. I'm aiming for 25 blocks. You can see other blocks here. (And look under it for the bunny block I'll be talking about below...) I haven't decided if I like the big floral print I've used as the surrounding of the blocks in the link. I may need to tone that down a LOT. But I have about 5 yards of the fabric that needs to be used. It's 30 years old or so. Time to GO! I'll probably incorporate 6" blocks not in the book because I'm not that interested in all the blocks.
The little bunny block is part of the Silver Lining Quilt Along. The last block comes out this week and it is time to decide what to put with the blocks. So here are two choices for a square of fab between the blocks. Do you like the bunnies? Or do you prefer the white polka dots on pink. I sure hope you said the white polka dots on pink because I don't have enough of the bunnies to use them. Plus a lot of the blocks have either the bunny fabric or the flower fabric on the edges and you just lose the block. I've got three blocks to finish before I can put this together. These blocks might be two doll quilts. Or a really small baby quilt.
Bonnie Hunter's Easy Breezy block challenge. I just really like this one and wanted to share it.
And I nearly forgot to add my goals for this week. I don't often have customer quilts to quilt. But all of a sudden I'm getting more interest. I've got 2 in house although one needs a batting and I'm waiting for new thread. And, another one is coming in soon. Hum. As long as I have time to do my own quilting and piecing!

It's time to start surfing the web now. Join me by going to these linky parties and seeing what folks are working on. I don't know about you but I keep getting more and more ideas. I'm trying to finish things but I may just bust out a new project one of these days! Oh Scrap, Monday Making, Design Wall Monday, and Main Crush Monday. I sure hope I remember to come back and link with these parties!
I leave you with a sign of the times. We were out a few times later in the week and threw the masks in the washer. But we hung them up to dry. Hum, maybe we should have dried them as the heat gets pretty intense in the drier but not so much in the washer. At least they are clean and well spun.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
