I'm trying to get myself back into the swing of daily life. My daily life that is. Even from the distance of only being a family friend and quiltmaker, I'm in a place where everything hurts. Keeping life close to home seems the best right now. I have gotten some Quilts for Japan together. These two are going.
And also these two. Betsy has 3 ready to go, and will take care of getting both hers and mine to where they need to be. Today I begin to focus on the Rainbow Scraps Challenge projects. Each month a color is selected, and if you are participating, you work with scraps of that color. April's color is purple, and I have lots and lots of purple scraps. But I'm shifting gears slightly this month. W I've come to realize this challenge has produced a new quilt for each of the past 3 months. Two started in January's blue scraps, and another in February's red scraps. March's green scraps added one more. Of those 4 "started" NONE are finished or even close. That does NOT bode well for someone who is overly prone to UFO-itis!! Sooooooo...
When In April purple scraps, I've decided to work with purple scraps to finish up two UFO's. This one is "purple" enough to qualify in my opinion. The other is an ancient Yellow Brick Road, at least one decade old! I made 9 blocks and promply bagged it. I like the idea of that Yellow Brick Road pattern, but the 9" blocks always seem clumsy to me.
But I will use my purple scraps(hoping at least SOME of the original purples are in the scrapbag or stash, and finish it up!! Same for the one in the 3rd picture, set with those 5" puple polka dots! Onward!
