It's been a good week for getting things done here at the Little Penguin house! I completed my July Color Challenge block which I'll link up over at Patterns by Jen.
I really liked this block pattern, and thought I had a good plan with my fabric choices, but I'm not particularly happy with how it turned out. The nest fabric and the dots go nicely together color-wise, but don't have enough contrast for the block. But the nest fabric has to go in this quilt inspired by birds! 😉
The dark blue zigzag row and the Covered in Love blocks are sewn up as well, and you can see them in my Saturday post here.
I also finished up my project and post for the Christmas in July (then and now) blog hop. Come back tomorrow for that one!
So, this coming week is wide open as to what needs to be accomplished! Here's what I'll put on the list:
1. Do some scrap sorting and cutting. These are the little bits and pieces that have accumulated on my cutting table the last few weeks. They'll be used for scrappy 4 patches and Easy Breezy Leader/Ender blocks. I folded up and put away some larger pieces before taking this picture!
I've had enough of dark blue, so that pile is going in the blue scrap bin! I can use some red, yellow, and purple in the scrappy blocks, though, so those bits will be used.
2. Finish cutting and start sewing the border for the little ocean quilt that I'm working on.
3. I'd also like to get these blocks sewn into a quilt top.
None of these jobs should really take very long, so who knows - other sewing might be accomplished, too! Have a great week, everyone!
