My granddaughter has been visiting for the last two weeks, so I haven't spent as much time sewing as I would normally. Though she did come along and keep me company a couple of times. I showed her my quilts, I sewed, she read her book, and a good time was had by all. (If I could read and sew at the same time, I'd totally do it.) (Must investigate audiobooks further.) (Soon.)
I made some more Ohio stars for RSC, using the multi-colors-on-black, plus one with just plain black and gray. I'm thinking that rainbows come from rainy clouds and rainclouds are black and gray, so it all makes sense. To me, anyway.
And it's my quilt, so there we go.
I also made another yellow block and another purple, just for fun. I'm declaring myself caught up (finally) so my plan from now on will be to make a few blocks from each new color, then wait until the end to see what I'll need to round things out for a final finish.
I added the new blocks to the layout I currently have underway, then just as I went to snap the picture, the sun came out.
Here's the red corner:
And here's an attempt to catch the next corner, with new blocks in place:
That dark wedge in the lower left is my foot, as I attempt to block the sunshine with my legs. All I managed to do was make stripes...
It wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, though. There was some monkey business.
Check out this sweet little monkey fabric I found at that quilt shop I went to last week.
It had to go into a monkey block, right?
You know how sneaky those monkeys are...
It's Scrap Happy Saturday, so I'm linking to So Scrappy for RSC2015. Come see all the fun!
And also? Linking with Oh Scrap!. at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework. (Usually I have another post for Cynthia's linkup party, but this week this post will have to do double duty...)
