I've decided to join in the rainbow scrap challenge this year & today i made my blocks. I just made it in the nick of time seeing as today is the last day of January.
I've had in mind for quite a while to make a bow tie quilt & they were my chosen blocks for this years challenge. They are 6-1/2" blocks & if i make 6 every month i'll have 72 & hopefully a good sized quilt. :)
My scrap basket didn't have a lot of blues & what was there i wouldn't have been able to get enough out of to make the blocks so my blues drawer was raided. That is quite ok with me as my intention is to chop up all those horded fabrics into scrappy quilts.
Then then the other day a good friend mentioned about a quit group she attends is making churn dash blocks to swap. They are choosing a colour a month for 6 months. As i love churn dash blocks is was a no brainer for me to also make them up today.
Can't wait to see what February's colour is.
I'd seen this quote today & thought it appropriate for me. I needed to take that first step back into sewing so here's hoping that today's sewing effort will lead to a 2nd step, then a 3rd & so on.
