Rainbow Sneak Peak

I worked on making blocks this week, adding a few stitches every morning before work.  That was a nice way to start the day! And when the last block was made, I couldn't resist laying the blocks out to peek at how it's going to look.  I love how it's turning out!

In other news, I could really use a design wall, because this is the most I could get a picture of!

Rainbow Work and a Fabric Pull

There has been progress on several different fronts this week.  The remaining fabric for the second round of rainbow blocks has been cut, and the pile of finished blocks is slowly growing again.

There is a new baby quilt taking shape here as well.  I had a pretty good selection in my stash, but there were still a few fabrics that needed to be purchased: some flannel for the back and a white for sashing.

Flannel was easy to find and the colors in this piece match so closely to the focus fabric that you'd think they were produced together!  On the other hand, it seems white on whites are hard to find around here.  It took three fabric stores to find a place that carried any, but it all worked out well in the end.

I'm really looking forward to getting started on this quilt.  It's been a while since I've had a good hand quilting project in the works, and that's a shame!

Woodland Sampler - June

I finished June's little bug!

And with the last stitch placed to close June's jar, there are none of the smaller square sections left.

Throughout this process I've been struggling with how the light floss colors look on this oatmeal Aida.  Next I have to decide whether July's flowers should stay white or pick up some sort of hue.
