I realized after last week's Saturday post that I had forgotten to share the pink crumb blocks I sewed in January, so here they are. And this week, some yellow crumb blocks, too! These will be saved up until I have enough in each color to make the "Precarious" quilt from Kelly Young's book, Stash Statement.

Crumbs, Quotation Marks, and a little Slow Stitching
Looks like I need to make more pink blocks!
I also stitched up a row of quotation marks for the RSC 2021 sampler quilt, using Angela's tutorial from earlier in the week. I opted for the simpler style and think it will work just fine!
Pink and yellow together...
My rows are about 41 - 42 inches wide at this point.
I'll add more background fabric to make them wider later in the year.
This week, I also cut out enough 2.5 inch squares in various shades of yellow to hand-piece a yellow scrappy trips block. These are lovely sunshine-y colors for a gray February day. This will be my slow stitching for the evenings and Sunday during the Super Bowl. I'm planning to make two 12.5 inch blocks each month.
