Just another scrappy day

Before I forget again, here's the second star block I made for our town's fundraiser quilt.  After all the Ohio stars I made last year, I think I could make this block in my sleep.  (We're not limited to making stars for the quilt - I just really really like stars...)





 I'm continuing in my efforts to catch up with the 365 Challenge, with another 5 blocks done today.


One thing that's helping me at this point is that I'm starting to accumulate a backlog of pieces leftover from other blocks.  Half square triangles, for instance, are getting easy to come by.  And several of today's set of blocks called for 1.25" squares, which happily can be cut from a 2.5" square. 
So now I'm caught up through March 10 - only 16 days behind!  I would have plowed forward with another block, but the next one in the sequence is a real bear.  I decided I'd tackle it with a clear head.

Next in line was a little boat I had cut and prepped yesterday.
I checked it carefully for stowaways...


Looks like we're all clear!  Not a single monkey on board.


But little did I know that the contagion could spread to piglets.


This poor little guy has the worst case of monkeys I've ever seen...

Congrats on catching up with the 365 Challenge. Yours blocks are lovely. Especially love the bottom left for some reason. Great work Gayle. I bet these little piglets love bananas, hehehe! Have a great Easter Sunday. ♥ ;^)

Those damn dirty apes are going to take over the planet if you're not careful.

Oh no. Now I have to go back and look for monkey blocks that feature pigs.
