It hasn't been a very productive week for me, quilt-wise.
I really tried last weekend. It was crazy cold and the wind was blowing, but I told myself "once you have the iron going and you're busy, you'll not notice how cold your sewing room is today and the iron will help warm it up". I made it through one block and realized the only time I wasn't freezing was when I was ironing. And that only kept the top half of my body warm. My toes were frozen!
But the block I made was for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, so now I'm down to just two more for this month. I still haven't touched my UFO Challenge block, but maybe once I get done here?
Here's block #6: balcony
I'm not entirely sure I like this one. Some of the other colorways were a little less scrappy, but I'm trying to go with the way the quilt I liked best is constructed. Maybe I shouldn't be? We'll see how future blocks go. But I am loving that I get to use scraps and placing some of my most favorite, dwindling scraps in key spots.
And so there's not just the one lonely photo, my rainbow cats from last year again!
This quilt is so awesome. It was my first time doing the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and I wasn't sure how it would all go. I love this quilt so much, I almost thought about making another this year!
Chores are done, so it's off to find some lunch and then hope my sewing room will be warmer today! We had a huge warm-up this week (50F on Thursday!!!!), but we're back down to the teens for highs (much more normal). This old farm house had colder spots depending on which way the wind is blowing...but I love it anyways.
