This week is spring break, and I have three quilts basted and ready to quilt up! Yay me! But you know I couldn't leave the piecing aside, right? So I've also been making some random blocks to add to projects that are already in progress, just whatever I feel like making at the moment. The first ones to show today are these:
These are all the blocks I currently have for the old and new sampler I'm making. I just love sampler quilts, don't you? Making copy after copy of the same block can get dull, but samplers give you something different to make every time. Since I have no schedule for this, I only have nine blocks so far:
These are 6-inch blocks, and most of the ones I've made so far are the Tula Pink blocks. These ones have been really fast, but some of the others I've chosen have more pieces and will take more time.
I also made the first green block for the Tiny Tuesday sampler at soscrappy:
This block is called Multiply and was designed by Jo. You can find the block instructions HERE.
I also did a few more of the Sunny Lanes blocks:
I've cut a bunch of green and white squares to make the hsts when I feel like it, and I've got a small tub full of hsts now, so whenever I finish enough 4 patches I can make up a block. I'm thinking of putting them all together into a top as I go, too. Is there a downside to this? It's all scrappy, so it's not like the colors would have to be balanced or anything.
I've also caught up on my temperature quilt:
As you can see, it's been pretty chilly! The blues are 20s and 30s, and the purples and grays are below that. I'm really looking forward to adding in some more yellows and greens very soon!
Finally, I pulled out this panel this week and hung it up to think hard about it.
I know it's not really blocks, but if I cut it apart and added in some alternate blocks, I bet it would make a nice comfort quilt for Hands to Help. What would you do with it? Here's a closeup of the design:
I'll look at it and think about it while I'm quilting up these quilts. Maybe I'll get to open the windows while I'm quilting? I can dream!
Hope you're all having a good week. As of today, spring is officially only seven days away!
