I'm almost ashamed to say not much once again. I did play with fabric but it didn't amount to much. Let's see.
I got more bags of scrap.
Then I sorted the scraps by colour.
On Wednesday, I went to see the girls quilting. I used to belong to this group but I was working and had to use a vacation day every time I participated. So I quit. Now that I am not working, I could join but I don't have money to pay for it. Vicious cycle!
Would you like to see what the girls are working on? I didn't take a picture of everyone's work because some were still just blocks.
This is Carole's top. She sewed the last seam while I was there.
Anne-Marie did some koala bears in grey and brown. Aren't they cute?

Back home, I got some of my smallest scraps out to make the last border on the Hole in the Barn Door quilt.
... but I did work with red ... a little bit.
Yes, I started another block. 😔 Sigh! I am hopeless!
I saw this on the Moda free pattern page and I just had to try it out.
And then, I added more, of course.
It's not exactly a good contender for RSC though. It demands some very big scrap pieces. I know I will run out of the white fabric before the block is done.
How about yellow? Pouf! Like magic, it is now yellow!
Do not adjust your monitors. I used a different white for the yellow HSTs.
Here's a "behind the scenes" photo. This is how I can make a 12" block in 3 minutes.
Not so magical, right? With pieces finishing at 1.5", the entire block will measure 12". I will tweak my way of cutting to shorten the cutting time. You might see this block (whatever its name is) again.
I forgot to mention in my last post that my personal Rainbow-UFO Challenge is Shoreline. These blocks are made with really small pieces. Oh, the fun I will have!

That's all for now.
