I should have a few finished projects to share with you - after all, I've had all month to work on them! (What have I been doing with all that 'spare time' that I'm supposed to be enjoying?) Yesterday, I decided that I was going to try to finish one or two of my Rainbow Scrappy Challenge projects - it's just a matter of putting the assorted blocks or strips together - that can't be that hard, can it? Well, it might not be if I had actually finished the November portions of my projects; then I had to decide on, and make, the sashing or whatever assembly method that I chose.
I actually managed to finish one of the tops, and a second one is quite close to being finished (no pictures of that one, unfortunately). I'm planning on both of these quilts being donation projects, and I think that this first one will be a cheerful one, wherever it ends up! It's the "Scrappy Braid" strips - 3 sections each month for 11 months. I chose a greeny-taupe Kona cotton solid (Limestone?), and just placed 2.5" strips between the rows; 3.5" strips around it finished it off.
They say that "the proof is in the pudding" - so, get out your spoons, 'cause the pudding is right here:
My always popular "Kickin' Stash" blocks will be getting mottled gold sashing strips; I'm not completely sure if there will just be continuous strips, or whether there will be cornerstone blocks at the intersections. However, that decision will have to wait for another day - tomorrow is New Year's day, and I have a quilting mystery to prepare for! It's going to use a lot of batik fat quarters, and butter and (?)limestone Kona cottons for the backgrounds. Hopefully, I'll have a picture or two by tomorrow evening...
