Happy Easter to everyone and everybun!!
This month’s colour for the Rainbow Scrappy is Neutrals. This is quite a challenge but I’m hoping to meet it. I’ve collected together all my neutral scraps smaller than 1/8th yard (plus a couple of rough 1/8ths I had to steal from a couple of bigger pieces) and cut them into 5inch squares and strips and also 2and half inch pieces…. leftovers were cut to 2” if possible and the remainder lumped together in a plastic box.
I selected 8 different 5” squares to make my D4Ps to go with the others. Then I selected 12 5” squares to make another project with. This project will be amalgamating two different challenges. One challenge is to make a quilt to the theme of a song, the other to try out a new ruler, and of course to meet with the Neutral Challenge for April.
With some of the scrappier pieces, those smaller than 2” pieces, I will be making my neutral house to go with the others.
Here is a small quilt I finished in the last couple of weeks but haven’t posted a picture of yet. It’s the Quilt of the Month for Kathleen Tracy’s yahoo group Small Quilt Talk. The challenges are also posted on her blog. This one is from the February challenge.
It is currently hanging just above my sewing table. Now if I could just make some decisions about border fabrics I could complete the one for March before embarking on the challenge for April which is pretty cute too.
Well I had better go and get another Dear Jane block made before the day has gone. Now which bunny shall I leave you with this week. hmmm…
Here is Chichi, taken a while ago, sitting on my windowsill thinking she’s a cat not a rabbit. Clearly her mother didn’t tell her that bunnies don’t like heights! She jumped up there from a footstool, just below the window, out of shot.
Enjoy these next few weeks of Easter!!
