Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Friday, December 11, 2020

This week in scraps...

brought to you by the color yellow!  

I had the yellow scrap bin out to find strips for the Covered in Love blocks I was making, so I just kept going and made a couple of wonky stars and some crumb blocks, too.

The crumb blocks will go into the project box for my 2021 RSC project, "Precarious."

The wonky stars are up on the design wall with the Easy Breezy blocks I've made this year.


Meanwhile I've also been sewing string blocks together into rows for the Diamond Strings quilt that I've been working on forever, it seems!  A little pressing is needed, and then these rows will become a quilt top.


One last bit of yellow to share - one of my favorite ornaments on the Christmas tree, which was decorated yesterday.

This came from the M&M store in Las Vegas
a fun to place to go when you're visiting there!

Yellow is such a cheery color! I’m trying to decide what I want to do for RSC 2021.

Smart of you to keep your scrap bin out to make extra blocks! Your Easy Breezy blocks might be my favorites of your creations. We visited that M&M store back in the 1990s! We just love those little characters.

I love the M&M's decoration it really is cute. I thought the string blocks were done for some reason and I have always liked that one. Finished this year?

I spy bits of DARK Neutrals in your blocks for CiL, Diann. Excellent progress on your RSC quilt projects! I am looking forward to seeing those come together.

Yellow has always been a favorite of mine; it's such a happy color. And who doesn't love M&Ms??

I'm stopping at each picture to go, that's great! Then there is another, and another... the diamond strings with the neutral border is awesome

Yellow is such a happy colour. I loved reading that you are working on RSC 2021 project too, seems a lot of us are thinking what we would like to do next year. The stars and Easy Breezy blocks go so nicely together.

I enjoyed your Likes post very much,Diann. Great photo of you two. Lovely house block. This post is chock a block, Lol. I can’t decide which I like best. Stars always stand out but your strings are beautiful too. Such joyful stitching!

I really like your wonky stars with the Easy Breezy blocks! And the strings, of course!
I've got about a zillion blocks I want to do for RSC 2021 - I think I might have to narrow down my choices a bit...

Jayne said...

You always have such pretty projects! Some in progress, blocks here and there. But they all end up being inspiring and gorgeous! Love the ornament! My daughter bought her dad a toilet paper roll ornament his year. Which is hilarious because he had a few freakout moments earlier this year!!

Chantal said...

Love the Easy Breezy blocks with your stars. They make a lovely pair together. Love the M&M ornament. It is so cute! I love the M&M guys. The String quilt is almost finished. Good luck with that. ;^)
