✅Work on secret project — progress is being made.
✅Make more blocks for FCQ Equilter of the month — a few more done.
Finish January Malted Mystery Clue — still need to put the last little border on.
✅Make a few more RSC Bow Tie blocks — finished the greens and started on reds.
✅Finish cutting out brick quilt — one done, one left to kit up.
Here are the bowties I've finished so far. The blocks are only 6" so I figure I'll need a lot of them. Looking at the greens I realize there are a lot of different shades of green. I also made 2 of the February reds. I've pulled out fabric for a few more.
I cut a slew of bricks ((3.5 x 6.5") of pink 30s fabric from the box of donated fabrics I washed for the quilt guild. I used any pink fabric that had animals on it. There were all sorts of animals: cats, dogs, ducks, elephants, lambs and bunnies. I grabbed a blue check from my stash to give a little contrast to all the pink along with the cream solid squares that provide the offset.
Here are this week's goals. Four items doesn't seem enough but I always have other items I can pull out.
Put binding on Strippy quilt
Work on UFO #9
Finish secret project top
Finish cutting out 2nd brick quilt kit
I did work on an off-list project. I have a few 10" Happy Blocks leftover from a top so I decided to make enough additional blocks to make another top. I'm aiming for a 4 x 5 setting. My modus operandi is pulling out all sorts of fabrics for the centers and then find the frames. I've had the centers pulled for a couple of weeks. It's time to get them cut out so I can put the mess away! I'm picking prints that work for boys and girls. I need to find some lighter frame fabric as this looks really dark to me. What do you think? So far I have a train, dogs, rubber ducks, monkeys, elephants and other wild animals, a helicopter, fighter jets and some dinosaurs. I have quite a few more to make. (If you want to make some too: 1 - 6" center square, 2 - 2.5 x 6" strips, and 2 - 2.5 x 10" strips.) I try to have several cut out next to my machine as leader enders so when I'm sewing something else these blocks are still being made.
