Scrap Happy Saturday

How can it be the 12th of April already? Seriously? Well, there is no way I'm am going to do very well with my goals this month but I am having fun anyway. I've been cutting and cutting and cutting. My GO cutter is tired. 2 inch squares! My best guess is that I have cut about 3400 squares. About 1500 to go. No problem.

I've also been sewing a bit. 5 - 100 square blocks. Those are 15 1/2" blocks



I'm loving this project. Five done, 44 to go. Hmmm, may get tired of it before 44 more.

I have worked somewhat on my April goals. My primary objective was to get several things from the list kitted because I will be babysitting dgd, Paige, for several days while her parents go on a vacation before the baby arrives (babymoon). I'll be able to sew while she's at daycare.
  • Winter Solstice paper pieced BOM - block #4 - cut out and some piecing
  • Quilt Beyond Borders - purple charity quilt top - cut out
  • 3 postage stamp blocks - pieced - plenty cut out
  • Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Two Purple bags - "fabric" pieced
     
I am noticing a major theme here - squares! Plain, simple squares. Yup, I'm loving the simplicity, crispness of them. No thinking involved. They make awesome leader enders. 

Maybe tomorrow I'll get some longarming done. Maybe. 

Check out other purple Rainbow Scrap projects.

Your postage stamp blocks are amazing! I would love to do something like that because yours looks so awesome. I see on your UFO list that you are working on a Sisters Choice too. Mine is my leader/ender project. Good luck with your sewing and your granddaughter!

Your leader/ender project looks lovely with the purple squares and the postage stamps are great.

I love postage stamps. I actually love to look at what can fit in a little tiny square.

Love postage stamp blocks and quilts. Maybe just take your time, work on a block or two a week.

Babymoon, there will be no rest after the baby arrives!
