The sewing continues....

It's been a rather busy week here, but I'm not really sure that I've accomplished much.  I did manage to keep up with my Quilty 365 project, and I pieced a top for a charity quilt.  I've also been working on 3 different knitting projects, but not enough to blog about...
So, I'll show you my week's worth of Quilty blocks - as always, some of the fabrics just demanded to be used, and others were chosen because they were handy.  You'll see what I mean when you check this week's projects.  First up are my Quilty 365 blocks for Feb. 15-21:
There are 2 blocks using brown fabrics, in keeping with the colour chosen for February's Rainbow Scrap Challenge (I still haven't assembled those blocks - I have a week left!); the purple and rose coloured tulips were Saturday's block, chosen because we set a new record high temp for the day and my daffodils and tulips are starting to poke their heads through the ground!  The solid purple in the top left corner is Wisteria Kona - a leftover from my other project from this week - the last floral strip quilt using "leftovers" from the large scale floral Disappearing 4-patch block swap that I did with Cathy.  I debated putting borders on the sides, but I did that with the first one, and much prefer it without.  You can also see the second one (also borderless).

We'll be heading out to "the farm" shortly - it's lambing season, and we had a new little one born this morning, so we need to check on it's progress.  I think this makes lamb #6 for the year - possibly one ewe left to deliver and we'll be done for another year!
Thanks for stopping in!
I'm off to link this project up at Cynthia's Oh Scrap post.


  1. So glad you shared your great scrap projects with Oh Scrap! I love your Quilty blocks!!

  2. I love your quilty 365 plus blocks! What a great idea! I've been using a favorite fabric I worked with during the week as a part of my blocks for that project, too. I think it will be fun to look back on a year of beautiful fabric choices!
