Rainy days make for great quilting time! We had a slow drizzle for two days, so I took advantage to spend some time in the sewing room to get my RSC2014 blocks made. This month’s color is green. I have to say, green is definitely my favorite color. As I was stitching them, I kept thinking about how last months blocks might look next to my new green blocks. I had vowed not to lay them out together till the end of the year, but my love of color took over. Soon I was looking for the box that is holding all my blocks. So I proceeded to lay them out on my sewing room floor.
What a pleasant surprise! All those wonderful colors, it’s as if I am out in my flower garden. I am not to proud about my lack of self control, but it did make me realize I need to think about making sure I have an equal amount of each kind of block. There are blocks that have color in the square and some that have black and white in the square. So when those squares come together in the quilt I want to have two of each coming together.
I now wish I had a big design wall to put them on. But then I might spend too much time just staring at them. I know I am already dreaming about a border! Now on to the wonky star block and I can pat myself on my back for meeting my goal again this month.
