It's been a week since I've posted anything, mainly because while I have been busy sewing, but there's not much to show for it. I mailed the giveaway off to Sally, she received it and sent me a nice note.
I finished appliquéing the baskets for February.
One day this week I was reading a blog by the Cuddle Quilter and she was telling about the rainbow challenge. I did check it out and I'm NOT joining it, however, I liked the idea and decided to try it out with some string blocks.
While I was sorting some of my string scraps into color groups, DH came in the room, picked up the camera and took a picture of the mess. He said I should post it on my blog, so here it is. You can see my scrap basket on the left side of the picture. This basket lives under my sewing table so that when I have any scraps or strips I can easily drop them into it. Lately though, in order for the scrap to stay in the basket I would have to stuff it down, otherwise it would just end up on the floor. In other words, it was packed with scraps. I did get some of it sorted into colors, but it is still 3/4s full.
Here are a few of the blocks I made into color groups. I am going to use these for a donation quilt and will arrange the colors into a rainbow type plan, or something else that looks good. I really need to make some of these every day in order to empty my basket. If I don't, the scraps might take over the whole room!
One of my main goals was to get the applique and the civil war quilts basted. I did baste the applique quilt, a table runner and a doll quilt. I still have to baste the civil war quilt, but decided to start quilting the appliqué quilt first.
Have a nice weekend everyone!
