it's freezing cold here: LOTS of time in the sewing room!

i'll be the first to admit that I love the accountability, motivation and inspiration of RSC15. but I will say that I, for one, am glad that I don't have as much PINK scraps as I did BLUE scraps.
 
 sheesh!


I got more strip sets done for my zig zag quilt- hot pinks, and bubblegum pinks. with the pink, blue and aqua strip sets done (I pulled aqua when I did the blue) I'm starting to get a pretty impressive pile of 4½" squares for those quilts.


I did 12 more crumb blocks.


and 9 more 9 patches. this should be a  fun quilt when it's done!


I also finished my saw tooth stars. I used my crumb blocks for the centers, and I'm loving how crisp these turn out. I used different fabric for the points of each star. the upper right star points are some fabric that I had used to make my grandparents a Trip Around The World. (waaaaaaaaaaay back in the mid 90's!)


and lastly, the pink 4 patches.

I've been doing lots of other sewing in the sewing room this week- several charity quilts, a scrappy quilt using over 100 2½" different strips, and some other miscellaneous sewing projects. with my little heater and Netflix, I'm a happy quilter!

don't forget to click on over and see the rest of the pinky goodness!

Wow, you HAVE been busy! Too much snow can be a good thing after all I guess, as long as you have food and power!
