Lucky for me, the colour of the month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is Blue for April. I had already started making blue blocks for my Colour Block Challenge quilt for April so these two challenges will be met together. I ended up making 12 medium/dark blue blocks and then found I had a stack of light blue squares as well. I made 4 light blue blocks and put them all up on the design wall to consider my next steps. I looked at my stash and found some red solid fabric which I will use for sashing, but not between every block. If you come back to visit next week, I should have the top completed. This is my third Colour block quilt made with my 2.5" squares from the scrap bins. I still have lots more squares so there will be more quilts!
I made one more Comfort Quilt block this week for the Elgin Piecemakers. This one was easy--the fabric was provided and already cut. I like the way the stripes look on this block.
I finished three of my pineapple blocks this week and made progress on the remaining nine after the setback last week. The completed blocks are 8.5" and I am aiming for a table runner that is 6X2 blocks. We will see how that looks when the blocks are done.
One more Modern Sampler block was made this week too. Only two more to go to get caught up.
My cable knitting is coming along as well. I did some knitting in the car earlier this week as well as at home with Finn snuggled up beside me. This is just a practice piece so I can figure out what I am doing before tackling a bigger project.
