Seriously is it May? It feels more like October here. We even had a frost last night, thank goodness I have been too lazy and have not had time to put any plants in. I know it would have been a disaster for my tomatoes.....
I cleaned out my fabric shelves and can see all those pretty fabrics in there! The solids still need my attention but I will get to that another day.
As I have been cutting strips I am also adding to the scraps that I will give away on Friday. At this point it looks like I will easily have 2 bunches to give away, maybe even 3! If you would like a chance to win some of my scraps go here and leave a comment. Part of the reason I want to give them away is that I feel all my quilts are starting to look the same.
I cut out 206 ten inch strips and it took a long time. I still have to cut out the low volume strips. That will go much faster as I am only using about 12 different fabrics.
This is our raffle block for the Lancaster Modern Quilt Guild next month. It was fun to make and I look forward to seeing them all together. The requirements were a blue background and a yellow star.
So do you think this looks "manly"? This is a bee block and you know for sure it is not mine! I had a hard time finding any brown in my stash.
Now I need to put all 206 of those fabrics back on my newly organized shelves!
