June is the blue month - bright and dark - I love blue!
I used ALL the different solid blues that I have for these blocks. Since there was only one light blue and I didn't want to wait for the light blue month, it got done this week too.
I dug out the plastic bag with all the smallest dark blue scrap I have. There was a piece big enough for a Star Bloom block, so it got done this morning.
I used Fiona's way to cut the HSTs for the Star Bloom block and it was really fast. Check out her blog
if you want to know how she does it. She also has a lovely top done. Just saying.
Too bad the HSTs for this one were already done, haha.
One more is needed. It's probably hiding in the dark blue scrap basket. I'll get it out today.
I'll have lots of chances to use Fiona's way to cut HSTs as I have a mind to replace all the stained blocks in Spinners quilt. You can read this story here
. The light yellow yardage I used in most of the smaller HST was cut while we were without electricity last month.
Little by little, it will get done.
Odd 9-Patch blocks this week.
The two little rascals (pink) blocks were playing hide and seek under my sewing machine since April (the Pink month). In no time at all, they were sewn and added to April's tally. 😊 Then a dark blue one, then ... a green one? It told me that it missed its exit and it ended up with the dark blue fabrics. (I don't believe that for a second. I bet alcohol was involved. haha!)
Last Wednesday, my son said that SIL came by to bring me this plaque, saying: "Mom would like something beautiful to decorate her door at the residence. So I got you this. Work your magic. There's no rush! Thanks."
I love my MIL and I would do anything for her. Looks like my SIL knows that too. So I will dust my paintbrushes, but I haven't painted in this century yet ... that says a lot and it's scary. Can I still do it? Do I still have it in me? Is my painting skill still good? What if I fall in love with painting again and abandon quilting? Do I accept this challenge? Sigh!
P.S. Thank you everyone for the lovely comments concerning Raven's operation last week. He is so much better that I removed the cone and the leash, and opened the patio door. He is somewhere out there this morning, happy and free.
