Hi everyone! How was your week? Life around here has been crazy. Why did we decide that a good time to move was right at the beginning of a school year, at the end of summer, and during the hottest time of the year? I guess we are desperate to get out of this condo.
So, this week the only thing I accomplished was to catch up on the Grandma's blocks for one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. Here are the blocks in this month's colors:
Definitely grayed tones, which were not helped by the afternoon light.
When I counted my blocks, I discovered that I was 9 blocks behind, so of course I decided to make them all at once. Why not? There's nothing else going on, is there? Here are the 9 that I accomplished this week:
Whoo-hoo, I'm all caught up! At least for the next 4 days. Some of those colors are really great, too. The yellow and coral on the left are my favorites of this batch.
I cut all of these out at once and made them assembly-line style, and it still took me all week. I am putting things in boxes and doing various other things in between as well. For some reason, the hubs still wants to eat every day. Even though I am packing up many of the pots and pans. Can you imagine? The nerve!
Just to congratulate myself, I laid many of the blocks out on a bed (sorry for the lumps) just to see what the quilt will look like:
I've been thinking all along that I wouldn't have sashing but would just stitch the blocks and let a secondary pattern come through. Now I'm wavering. What do you think? Also. does anyone have any opinion on any missing colors? I know we have 2 months to go, and one of those has to be a red, but I need 6 more blocks to finish it up. Any suggestions?
Everybody have a great weekend. It's going to be hotter than blazes here, and we'll be packing. When did we get all this stuff? We also have to shop for appliances, so it looks to be an expensive weekend for us. I think I may need to have a break with some ice cream or something midway through!
