Remember Saturday? Yeah, me too. I have fond memories of Saturday. Sigh. It was a gorgeous 70-ish degrees outside, clear blue sky, the sounds of children playing outside…
Yesterday? – snow. Today? It’s cold. No children playing outside.
So this afternoon I pulled out some warm and bright scraps to work with. It helped to cheer me up just a bit.
These two blocks were made using this Pineapple Blossom block tutorial.
The blocks are for our Imagine at Do. Good Stitches bee and we were asked to make the larger size block. They were a lot easier than I expected them to be. And this is a perfect tutorial if you have a lot little bits leftover from jelly rolls. Which I do.
This next block was also for our Imagine group. Heidi created this Starstrip Block tutorial so it will use up extra jelly roll strips - or you could just cut width-of-fabric strips from your stash. I had to do a bit of both to get a nice group of reds for this block.
And now just to prove to you that I am willing to accept that it is Fall and the weather will no longer be “nice”, I have one block made from Fall colors:
This is one of three star blocks that will soon become a new table runner.
Have a great (and warm) afternoon!
