I've been so focused lately on my first Scrap Squad quilt and my Farmer's wife quilt. It was time this week to take a little break and catch up on a few other things.
Like the Craftsy block of the month.
I'm using a fat quarter pack for these blocks, Ella's wishes from Connecting Threads.
Here's February's blocks
And the Just Takes 2 blocks.
I had looked at these blocks but not committed to making this quilt. It's not like I don't have plenty of other projects to keep me busy.
But..............I've always loved red and white quilts and wanted to make one someday. But I just couldn't see myself sticking with a project that made the same block over and over with just 2 fabrics.
This quilt was more appealing because it is a sampler quilt, all kinds of blocks. I still can't see limiting myself to only two fabrics though.
So.............I decided I'm in on this quilt! However mine will be scrappy red and white. Only 2 colors but many, many fabrics!
I got busy and in just a couple of days I have units 1 and 2 completed and I'm loving them!
Also I've been busy plotting and planning my next Scrap Squad quilt. I pulled a bunch of fabrics that are possibilities and it's looking like this will be one bright quilt!
My Farmer's wife quilt needs border's first! Hopefully to be completed before the end of this month.
