The other day, when I was cutting 1.5" and 2.5" strips from my orange fat quarters (thereby turning them into scraps and thus perfectly legit for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and that's my story), I also cut 2" and 3.5" strips for some pinwheels.
After constructing all the HSTs for these blocks, though, I had to do an emergency consult on previous blogposts to make sure I had my pinwheels facing the right direction.
Whew! Got it right the first time!
And then, since I luckily had all those scraps right at hand, I figured I might as well make a piglet.
And then after a brief (ish) stop at Capitol Quilts - totally because my daughter needed some fusible interfacing and a fat quarter of a nice red to finish a project and I went along as an advisor, and for no other reasons, and I'm sure it's just a coincidence that she came out of the store with stuff for a whole new project (like mother, like daughter, right?) and I had a stack of fat quarters that will fit with a couple of projects of my own (one of them not even new!) - I used my brand new first ever Kaffe FQs to make a couple more little porkers.
(I have a feeling these won't be the last Kaffe Fassetts I ever buy...)
And here are the six piggies I've made so far this month. I expect a few more will turn up when I get back to my stash (going home Sunday), as well as some bitty boats and a star block or two.
Oh, and kaleidoscopes. There will definitely be some kaleidoscopes. I can hear that ruler calling me from hundreds of miles away...
Linking with So Scrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday. I'm looking forward to buckets and buckets of orange!
