A lot of my sharing has been via Instagram these days but today I thought I'd pop in here at the old blog and show a few projects I've been working on that have me very excited! I dumped out the scrap bin in the last few weeks and decided to do some scrappy improv. First up, a rainbow block mini quilt, made using the crazy piecing technique from the book 'Quilting Modern.'
This was a LOT of work for me and I'm sure I over-thought a lot of it (straight, symmetrical stuff is what comes natural to me!!) but can I say how thrilled I am with how it turned out. It's about 27" square and at this point I'm not sure what it will become, but for now it hangs on my design wall and makes me happy. :)
Realizing that the rainbow blocks in no way depleted the scrap bin I jumped into another project, this time adding to the scraps bits of light neutral solids that I have, not enough for large projects and I don't remember what shades they are anyways so might as well use them up!
The picture was taken yesterday and I'm now up to about 30 blocks - these are small and quick, and will finish at about 4" square. I'm using a tutorial by Faith @ Fresh Lemons called Butterfly Strands. I was introduced to this tutorial through my bee this month and I love it! Fast and fun. :) Another 'make me happy' project for these dreary winter days.
Looking forward to seeing what the rest of you have up this week!
