We recently had a member step down from our circle of do.Good Stitches, so I volunteered to make another of our April blocks using Lee's Hexing Around the Block tutorial. Honestly, I wasn't paying that much attention to the color assignment when I volunteered or I probably would have passed.
I read "light blue" and thought of all the aqua scraps I had lying around and thought it would be easy to come up with enough. Then I re-read our original instructions and realized someone else was already making two aqua blocks and another was making medium/dark blue ones so I was stuck with true light blue. Not a shade I have much of, but I think I squeaked by. The color is a little off here, but for the most part I kept it more light blue than aqua. Thank goodness for those Rainbow Charm Swaps!
I'm still waiting for my fun fabrics to arrive so I can start a few new projects, so in the meantime I decided to cut some squares for another little quilt.
No real plans for this one yet, just simple patchwork and if I'm feeling spunky I may attempt some orange-peel quilting.
And this is the latest version of child-proofing in our house...
I kept complaining to my husband about all the things Max gets into by pushing around our dining room chairs, so he took action, tying them together with some clothesline. Not the most attractive detail, but so far it works.
That's pretty much all the excitement around here this weekend. What's going on at your house?
