I had to put my plans for doing "On Parade" on hold as I do no have enough of the background fabric it would require. I did order something but it will not be here for a few days and I will be busy with something else by then, LOL. You know I will! I'll be serging pillowcases (probably!) and then quilting those three donation quilts soon enough.
I pulled out something that has been in my storage stack for a long, long time intended for a donation top. Chances are, I would have been working on something pro bono there. The friendship block can wait a day or two and requires some hand embellishment. I will have plenty time to do that at the hospital next week. This particular quilt kit, a large 4 patch on point with a zigzag setting, was taking up a ton of room since I had the backing and all the extra fabrics stuffed in with it. I elected to move it along, get it out of there.
I think what clinched my decision was a picture of a scrappy one that cycles through on my screen saver but this will be more planned as I had a stack of leftover Oriental fabrics in pinks, aqua, yellow one of the Belles had passed on.
Here is the older quilt from August 2012 but I have made others over the years. Triple Rails, bowties and Puss in the Corners are often my go-to scrappy quilts.
Well, I have a stack of blocks pinned and ready to feed though the machine so best get back to it! I can talk about piecing or I can actually DO it. Hope you have had a good day. You know where to find me this weekend!
