Welcome to March. I got hit late last week with a horrific cold, so most of my time is being spent coughing uncontrollably and blowing my nose, which makes it hard to do any coherent... well... anything.
I've started assembling the next row of Quilty 365, working right to left across the top.
I ran out of steam getting the last blocks actually stitched, but at least the fabrics are chosen and cut and everything's ready to go. You'll notice there's bacon for the 28th fabric, and the March 1st orange peel is in the new RSC colors of purple with yellow.
The interesting thing is that the March 1st block is going to be right next to the February 1st block. Twenty-nine days made a complete lap around. Whoda thunk?
And in the kaleidoscope realm, how could I resist a bacon block?
It was the last block of February for my calmer gentler kaleidoscope project.
I need to catch up the corners on these blocks. I just didn't have the brain power to tackle it today.
My other kaleidoscope - the one that grabs me by the scruff of the neck and drags me back and forth through my stash - is now at this stage.
Now, this one, I'm not doing corners until the end. I've seen all kinds of creative treatments for those empty spots, so I'm leaving my options open until all blocks are made.
Say goodnight, kaleidoscope. I'm about ready to go lie down, myself.
But first, I'm linking to Quilty Folk for the Quilty 365 March linkup, and with Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting for Kaleidoscopes of Butterflies.
