I'm late, I know. We'll just pretend it's Saturday. I'm going to sneak in here real quick to share my Rainbow Scrap Challenge/52 Weeks of Scrappy Triangles blocks for May. These days I prefer clear reds, and my supply of them is a bit thin. But I made it work, using as many of my multi-color scraps as possible along with the reds. (That bin is still jam packed, though.)
I'm loving the dark blue triangles with the colors. These blocks were fun to put together if we forget about how long it took to get the ladybug almost all the way on the block. Lots of do-overs, but I think it was worth it to get that scrap in kind of the right place.
Here's how the year of RSC/Triangles looks so far. (Fuzzy photo, I know, but I was in hurry and the light was dim. I'll get a better one next time.)
Still crazy, but in a good way. I will definitely have to supplement with additional blocks at some point or continue the project into next year to have enough blocks for a quilt of a decent size.
It's time for a red infusion, so this time I bought an already-put-together bundle from Winter Creek Cloth. I don't usually care for bundles as I'm picky about what's in them. But this one was perfect. The fabrics are from all different lines and are just the kinds of prints I'm trying to build: perky, but still reading as a single color.
So that's May. I've been occupied with a whole lot of non-quilty things lately, so I'm happy to have just this much to show for now. I'm excited to begin the Positivity QAL with Sew Preeti Quilts this month. I'm glad she is making this a leisurely sew. I do have some of my plus parts cut and am planning to cut backgrounds today so that I can hopefully keep up. (Yes, really. I'm on call for jury duty this month and have some other things going on, too, so I need to kind of work ahead while I can in case I'm needed elsewhere.) Do go over and check out her blog. She has a tab for the QAL to follow the parts after you read her post about her quilt. This will be a fun project with lots of layout options. And it's for a great cause.
