I really want to finish up the Elephant Parade, but it's crawling along. I re-made the blue flowers from the old style to the new one. The scale seemed 'off' and I'm pleased with the results! I have a few sashing strips sewn on (not pictured here). The frog and turtle eyes are next up and then I can hopefully have a completed top.
A few years ago, I started making string blocks of green, blue and purple as a way to use up some scraps. The plan is to put them into a twin sized quilt and donate it to Project Linus. Yesterday I had a mess of green scraps on my cutting table (in addition to orange and pink!!)
It seemed like a good opportunity to sew up some green string blocks! I made four yesterday, which brings the running total to 12 blue, 12 green and 8 purple. (not the latest group photo and the new blocks are much more vibrant than in this photo!)
Why were my scraps laying out on the cutting table? Because I emptied the scrap containers to bring for Show and Tell at my guild meeting.
Why? Because Amanda Jean was the speaker!!! Woot!!! So.Much.Fun!!! I'm a mega fan of her style and it was a fantastic talk and trunk show! She signed my copy of her book and I treated myself to a few copies of her patterns.
The last thing I have to share is a cute little basket I made following a tutorial from Hearts and Bees. It went together very quickly and I'm hoping to make more!
