I’m joining with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge at: http://superscrappy.blogspot.com/
My intention is to make various animals this year in the Challenge colors-of-the-month. The January color is PURPLE, so these pieces were on the cutting mat this morning:
And sewn together, you've probably guessed that they make this (I have cut out all of the parts and will be making three):
This cute elephant block was designed by Miri and a free pattern is offered on her blog Milk and Honey Quilts:
And then I got distracted with organizing a little of the sewing room to decide what to put next on the quilting frame. First, I put all of the UFOs into the purchased bins and labeled them:
Then I went through the cloth baskets of tops and backings and put each top with an intended back:
They look lovely now and all ready to pick one and quilt it up! It feels good to be a little more organized. Unfortunately, I discovered several more UFOs in one of the cloth baskets:
They never end! Whatever made me think I had corralled them all?!
I just had to stop and unplug everything since we are expecting bad weather. We are under a tornado watch until 10 this evening and there will be severe thunderstorms. Our Sunshine Skyway bridge is already closed to all traffic due to high winds. I definitely want to protect my expensive equipment, so it will have to be hand-sewing this evening.
