May 350 Block Report

“Our new goal for May is to make 46 blocks
for a year-to-date total of 149.

and our new goal for June, which is 38 blocks,
for a year-to-date total of 187.”
Prairie Moon Quilts

My total to date –
January 33 + February 34 + March 22 + April 12 + May 0 = 101

Yes, zero, I cut strips for my 30’s scrappy trip-around-the-world,
but nothing sewn together.

I don’t even have a new picture.
I love the way these blocks look.

We left Sacramento, CA, on our vacation road trip on May 11.
I did pack my sewing machine
but it hasn’t seen the light of day.
I’m doing good to get in some crocheting on my #100 day project.
We are now in Holmes County Ohio.

A Fabric Scrap Problem?

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

On Wednesday’s, Sarah @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict, confesses that she might have a problem with her scraps of fabric. She shows us all the quilty stuff she makes out of scraps
and asks us to share our scrap creations.

I have enjoyed looking at her quilts.
I have bookmarked quilting ideas.
Today I’ll show what I made Monday night
when all was quiet and cozy.

1st block of A Scrappy Trip Around the World.

I love 30’s fabric.

I don’t see any problem at all with scraps of fabric.

Bonnie, a Hopeless Scrapaholic,
posted the directions for this quilt here.

Yarn Along – Just a Little Knitting

yarnalong_gsheller_gray
On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

For various reasons, my knitting has been patiently waiting and rolling their eyes. I was ignoring everything that needed a hook or needles, except this very simple diagonal scarf. I only had to think twice on the right side row and not at all on the wrong side.  I just didn’t think I could handle more.

For some reason this old  project called out very loud. I heard and dug out the pieces of this English paper-piecing project. I can’t remember when I started it, but I do remember working on it in 2007. My version of a Grandmother’s Flower Garden using reproduction 30’s fabrics.

I first made ‘flowers.’

Then I added ‘leaves’ around the flowers. The sunny yellow will connect all the flower units

I have a along way to go until this is big enough for my bed.

I hope the knitters and crocheters don’t mind a little quilting visiting ‘Yarn Along’ today.
