january blocks

January is almost over.  I didn't get as much quilting done as I wanted to, but I made some progress.  I finished my block to swap for the Quilted Garden and made 3 other blocks.  I still need to make one more, but I guess that can be moved to February.  I made the two blocks for the So Scrappy challenge and then decided, as long as I was in my scrap bins, to make some blue spinning stars.  I made this foundation pieced quilt 10 years ago in pinks and greens and purples and gave it to one of my daughters.  It was fun to make and I've always wanted to make another one.  So I made four blue blocks and then couldn't resist making a green block and a purple block (the green and purple scrap bins were right next to the blue one and calling my name!!!).  I also finished the 25 blocks for Bonnie Hunter's 2014 mystery quilt and need to lay them out and sew them together.  You may not be able to read it, but the first quilt shop is "The Pines Quilt Shop" and the third is "Butterfields".  They were really fun to sew!!!  Thanks to Deanna for doing this block swap.

so scrappy blue blocks

I finished my two blocks for January for the So Scrappy challenge.  I also looked at the posted blocks and was blown away with the creativity and color combinations of so many of the quilters.
