Mod Mosaic block for Brooke
Patchwork Wheel scrappy blocks - Up to three blocks now! Still a bazillion to go if I want to make this big enough to fit on my bed eventually, but there's no rush here at all. Just having fun with it :)
NY Beauty mini - Still auditioning borders. I busted out a pack of Thangles I got for my birthday and used them to create a zillion 3/4" HSTs. Not really a zillion, just 160 of them because when I counted how many each strip made, I was apparently suffering from some serious brain fog...rather than each strip making 5 HSTs (by my count), they made 10. So I wound up with twice as many as I wanted, but that's okay. I'll find a way to put them to use. Anyway, I laid out the HSTs in a flying geese-like formation, and I think I might just be digging it. We'll see, I'm going to leave this up until after I get back from my vacation next week and see what I think then.
My Precious QAL pillow - A while back, Tamiko posted a gorgeous simple paper piecing pattern on her blog that she used to make a beautiful pillow in the Pillow Talk Swap. I pinned it, and thought about using it as a bee block, but I just didn't think I had enough super special awesome fabrics to use in the center of the blocks. Lo and behold, Tamiko sent me a gorgeous little scrap bundle from her very own stash (thank you!!!) and when I saw Kelly starting up the My Precious QAL, for all of us fabric hoarders, I knew it was time to make myself a little something with the fabric Tamiko sent as well as my own hoarded stash. I've made three of these little blocks so far, and anticipate making at least another 6, if not more. I'm having a lot of fun so far, taking a scrappy approach to the blocks.
What are you working on this week? Write it up and share it over at Freshly Pieced!
