Blue Saturday

Today, my main man is gone to his friend's place, an hour drive one way, so he won't be back soon. You know what that means, right? It's fabric day at my house, whoohoo!

I want to play with blue.

I need to finish my scrap basket à la Fiona in blue.

I also want to add a medium blue block to this RSC 2017 quilt. These nine blocks aren't enough for a decent size quilt.

I made some more scrap units so the future blocks will go together pretty quickly. Love that. These units will be trim to 4.5 inches.

Last summer, I got this table at Market Place on line. It's only 2 feet wide but it's the 8 feet length that I just love. I drove two hours (one way) to get it and it barely fitted in my van, tucked all the way to the front and the hatch-door closed 1/2 inch from the leg of the table. Phew! I regret nothing! This week, I cut the fabric for the borders on the RSC2016 and it was so easy on this table.  So you will see more of that project soon.

Do you have the blues at your place? I know Angela does. Come and see. Just click here to see a lot of blue beauties.

Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun than Housework as the scrap bug. Lots of lovely scrappy projects to see.

See you later, Alligator.
Take care, Polar Bear.
