it's been another phenomenally cold week here (how could it possibly get any colder?!) and I've had a few evenings in the sewing room to make some progress on my pink scraps. shown above are the rectangle and squares that I'm making from my pinks. I have a general idea of the direction I'd like to go with this quilt, but I'm going to remain flexible.
even though these S4P are SO TEDIOUS, I love how they turn out. it makes it worth it when I see how cute they are. I've not been making as many of these- just picking out my favorite scraps in the color of the month.
here are the rest of the blue S4P from last month- never got them done... for the S4P I'm picking whites as the other color. I want this quilt to finish crisp and bright when it's done.
even though I feel as if I'm sewing like a crazy maniac, the 3" squares in the suitcase are not getting any fewer. (as a matter of fact, I think there might be slightly more in there then when I started all over in January!) so I decided to start making some 16 patch blocks. i'll use a tan/cream for the alternate block, instead of the white like in the S4P. above there are 2 pink 16 patches, and 2 slate blue 16 patches. (don't believe the camera when it wants to tell your eyes that you're seeing purple!)
these two quilts were made for our church sewing group, Scraps to Wraps (S2W). they'll be for a (yet to be born) baby. they were quick and fun to make- and personally, I'm rooting for a set of boy/girl twins... we'll see!
