Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Little Penguin Quilts Through the Year

Friday, July 30, 2021

The end of July...

I'm finishing out July by finishing up the next row for Full Stop, the 2021 Rainbow Scrap Challenge sampler.   I wasn't sure I'd get much time at my sewing machine this week, but it turned out that I had just the right amount!

Plus my order of the background fabric, Moda Bella Pearl, from Missouri Star Quilt Co finally arrived.

This makes my background look yellow, but it really is a cream color - "pearl."

I ended up with a row of nine colons.



It's getting more and more fun to lay out the rows now that there are 7 of them!  It think it will be a good puzzle to figure out the final layout of this quilt and how to use the different lengths and widths of these rows in a creative way.

The longest rows measure 42 inches.

I'm so sorry about your mom's troubles, glad she's on the mend. Your punctuation quilt pieces look so colorful and fun! And I'm with you on stitch therapy, it really works to slow down and put things in perspective. Nice work stuffing back packs, too!

it is interesting how so many of us have so much trouble getting whites/creams and other colors to photograph correctly - I always have the same problems

I love seeing all the rows together! (I was visualizing how it would look if not all the rows ran horizontally... Hmm...)

Jayne said...

Each row is amazing and half the fun will be puzzling together the top! It isn't always easy getting color accurate in photos, but I do believe you when you say its not yellow!!

Pat said...

it's going to be a fun quilt as the rows are looking great!

Susie H said...

Pretty rows! Does look like it may be challenging to put it all together. I am confident that you'll come up with something wonderful!
