Most of my sewing machine time this week has been spent working on the quilting of my Stay at Home Round Robin, and I'm slowly making progress on that!
But when I'm just quilting along with straight lines, I have to admit that my mind wanders and I start thinking about what else I might like to be sewing. The new Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for April is light and bright blue, so of course, I'm ready to sew with blue!
One project I thought about was my Table Scraps project for the month, a placemat in light/bright blue. I happen to have a charm pack of Kaffe Fassett that I've been trying to find a purpose for. Lots of pretty blue in this one, among other colors.
I picked out several squares that I really liked, paired them with a blue solid fabric, and made some 4.5 inch HSTs out of them.
Right now, I'm just playing with the layout for the placemat. Maybe this?
A couple chandelier bead blocks were quick to sew up, too.
When I saw that Angela had posted the Full Stop April block, which is an asterisk, I had to make one of those, too! Even though I've seen many quilts using this block, I've never made one myself. I think it turned out pretty good!
Well, now that I've distracted myself with a few scraps of blue, I'd better get back to my quilting!
