My design wall today is mostly blue. Fortunately that's not how I'm feeling, but it is the colour of the month over at the rainbow scrap challenge. So, I put together some more anvil blocks, to go with the 6 leftovers from my New Year's Day quilt (An Oldie but a Goodied, done in reds). I hope to end the year with another one, in a more scrappy colourway.
Then, I had to make the block for the RSC sampler - a little 6" block. The original had 9 2" triangles, but I have a box of little triangles that finish at 1.5" - so I put 16 of those together to make a 6" block. I really like this one, so I may do one of these every month, instead of the sampler. We'll have to see. I've been looking for a quilt for the triangles for some time now.
The final blue block is Judy's scrap challenge for January. She gave us a few different ideas for colouring the block, but I think I like this one most. It's blue just to fit in the with the RSC colour, and I haven't decided if I'll go ahead and make a bunch more this month, or hold onto it and make one in the RSC colour each month. I do need to be careful - I could end up with 24 quilts in December, at this rate :)
Last but not least, I made the house blocks for last month's Downtown BOM. Wow, those were a TON of work! All those little teeny tiny brown bits under the house took forever. And, like a fool I stopped in the middle and proceeded to mess up the next step when I came back to it. Lesson learned - don't put down a paper-piecing project in mid piece.
