Hi Quilting Friends,
Whew! I survived finals week, and another semester is in the books. I am looking forward to winter break- two glorious weeks with no alarm clock to rudely disrupt my sleep. Time to enjoy celebrating Christmas, spending time with loved ones and friends. And sewing; it may happen!
I’ve really enjoyed playing with my colorful scraps this year, although I’m not seeing a significant decrease in the volume of scraps in my collection. Maybe the scraps get more fluffy as I sort them, or maybe they are so happy in my color-coded scrappy boxes that they reproduce while I’m away at work. Who knows! I won’t complain though; it’s nice to have a plethora of choices for my next projects.
Here’s what I’ve been doing with my #RSC2022 projects during December-
After quite a lot of dithering, I’ve finally decided upon the layout for the 20 colorful Sawtooth Star blocks, made in 2021 and 2022. Here’s a picture of the Sawtooth Star blocks in all of their rainbow scrappy gloriousness –
The side-by-side layout seemed a bit busy to me, so I’ve added white-on-white print sashing between the blocks and solid black cornerstones to provide some space for resting the eyes. Here’s the quilt top now-
The finished quilt would measure 55.5″ x 69″ as it is, unless I add a border. Do you think that this will need a border? If so, then what would you use? I haven’t decided! More dithering is on the agenda, I suppose!
There’s no way I’m going to have time to finish quilting & binding this baby in 2022, with all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, so it will move from my #RSC2022 list over to my PHD list for 2023.
