With the warmer weather, it is getting more and more difficult to get my 365 Challenge blocks done each day. Thank goodness we have had a couple rainy days!
|Today's block (in the center) took a couple hours to construct--I'm hoping for some easier blocks next week! I'm really burning through my stash of light blue fat quarters. Don't worry! I'm not in danger of running out, but it will be nice to get back to the darker blocks eventually.|
By the way--if you have fat quarters to use up, check out these free Moda patterns using twelve FQ's on the Bear Creek Quilting Company HERE. Macaroons and Neighbors are my favorites so far. The patterns are intended for Bella solids, but I think they would look great using prints, plaids, stripes, or whatever you have in your stash.
|The Temecula Circa 2016 blocks are small, but not so challenging.|
I've been making all the blocks with squares from my scrap boxes--nice to use some of those up!
|These are what I have so far. |
There will be 74 total, so another 40 or so are on the horizon.
Two a week is pretty easy to keep up with--much more doable than one a day! It's hard to wait until October to see how these all go together.
|Next on my to-do list: the nine patches needed for Lisa's Flower Garden.|
Thankfully, these should go together quickly.
|I don't sew by machine in the evenings, so it was fun to get my Buttermilk Basin "T" finished--finally a use for my dollar store baker's twine!|
