not much sewing in the sewing room this week, what with pink-eye, the stomach bug, bronchitis and a blizzard (30+" from Stella, the epic nor'easter)....
...but what did get sewn was soothing and repetitious- 3" squares in a low volume 16 patch: 10 in all. they'll join the purple and aqua ones in the drawer, waiting for all the other colors to join them in December...

a bit of time in the sewing room this week: and almost all devoted to red, red, red! I pulled out the pinwheel blocks (a leftover from RSC16) and am assembling them color by color, month by month. reds are checked off the list...
and digging through the suitcase of 3" squares yielded many, many reds. obviously a favorite color of mine... ( I do like reds, it's true!) a few minutes of sorting, and I had enough (different) reds to make 3 LV+ blocks.
I made a LV+ quilt last year, but it's quite different from this one. (it's still hanging in my sewing room closet, patiently waiting for its turn at the quilters....)
click on over to Angie's blog on Saturday morning to see what everyone else has been sewing together this week... also, thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your taking a moment or two from your sewing time to see what I've been up to! if you'd like to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you! (and just also wanted to let you know I turned off the annoying confirmation bits on the commenting form- so chatter away!)

good thing February was a short month! I don't have much in the way of teal/sea green scraps, so I was able to get all my piecing done in short order... and with a bit of the month left over, combined with a "late" announcement of the March color, I got caught up on my Rainbow Column- Along from 2016!
over on instagram, I've started making a month marker. (who knew that was a thing.... I'm always late to parties like that...)
2 more rows done this month for my RSC16 Column-Along- the red and teal. I'm using coal for the back ground, and all scrappy colors of the month for piecing. the Kona reds are: wine, lipstick, red, burgundy, brink, Chinese red, tomato and a mystery red. the aqua Konas are teal blue, candy apple green, turquoise, cyan, breakers, peacock and Caribbean.
above is a picture of the blocks at the point where I got stuck last year. so with 6 rows completed now, I think I'm over half done! only yellow, green and a variation of the grey row to go! it's fun to see these completed quilts/flimsys show up in the linky parties every once in a while. soon i'll be able to add mine!
