A few more Centennial blocks -
joined the first one that I made last week.
I'm definitely putting these at the top of my list for RSC2017. They're really supposed to be made with only two colors, but I'm using three. Because why would I stop at just two?
And I finally found the pieces that I'd cut out for two Chantal's Pinwheels blocks - they'd gotten pushed aside and buried during the height of the pumpkin frenzy - so I got those put together.
That's a block that will get carried over into 2017, as well as several others. I enjoy making them, they look lovely in rainbow colors, and I don't have enough to
One block that I'm NOT planning to carry over is my piglets, since I have more than enough to make the quilt I had in mind. But, honestly? These little cuties are such fun that I don't know if I'll ever be able to stop.
Sally T might have to rescue me by inventing another block that's as irresistible as her piglets. (She's got some bunnies...)
I've also been continuing with my Sea of Tranquility blocks.
Only about a gabillion of those to go! Woohoo!
And look who came inside now that the weather has started to cool off -
I'd been hearing them playing out in the yard, and the neighborhood squirrels were starting to develop nervous tics, so I knew they were around.
Take a good close look at this little fellow, because he's kind of special.
A couple of days ago, Bonnie Hunter announced the name and colors of this year's Mystery Quilt. I've been on the fence about doing another one - I loved playing along last year for the first time, but it's a big commitment, and I wasn't sure I'd be up for it again.
So, yeah, dither dither.
The color palette she's picked is lovely - purple, lavender, grassy green, bright yellow, and magenta for an accent - but it's a little on the perky side for me.
But PURPLE. I love purple. And orange, of course.
That little monkey up there is what I've decided to do with Bonnie's En Provence. I'm substituting blues for the greens, toning down the bright yellows to gold, and using a nice tangerine as the accent color.
Apparently I'm in.
Though only for making a half-size quilt.
Yep. Definitely just a small one.
