Blue is definitely a wintry color and a good color to start with in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for 2016.
My eleven Farmer's Wife blocks for January are now completed -- hooray!
I am so happy with how these turned out. Making these 6 inch blocks is so much fun.
I actually used up about half of my true blue scrap pile making these blocks. After finishing these, I toyed around with the idea of starting a second RSC16 project but I decided against it because 1. a 50% reduction is pretty stellar and 2. I need to have at least some blue options for Stash Bee blocks throughout the year.
My other new blue project, the Summer Breeze baby quilt is currently my main piecing project. I am excited that I'll be able to piece the top completely from my stash -- which is always a bonus! All of my rail fence blocks are completed and I have more than half of the pinwheels completed. The pinwheels will have a 2.5 inch border of white strips to make the blocks 8.5 inches so that will be the next undertaking once the pinwheels are done.
I am just fine with this, but everyone I know is itching for snow, especially Park Ranger Husband. Driving in the snow gives me palpitations because last winter I was in an accident so I'm really only ok with the snow if it means that I get a snow day and the next day the roads will be clear to drive. Plus a snow day means a sew day for me, so I'm always hoping for that. :)
