Yesterday I sewed purple and blue blocks. I’m still cutting for the orange and pink blocks.
For those who have inquired but don’t have their email enabled, this is the book that the pattern is in. It is the same book that had the Fractured quilt (see my label list on right side bar for my Fractured quilts).
My blocks are more intense colors than the ones in the book’s quilt. I like the low contrast of that one too.
The sky was pretty last night. I can’t seem to capture the intensity of the color. It still makes a pretty picture though.
I was asked about my statement about making an effort to throw away 14 items a day. First of all it is 2014 so that is where the 14 came from. I guess I alarmed a few people into thinking I was throwing away perfectly good things. For example, when company is coming and I’m down to the last hour, I throw the remainder of what is sitting around into a box and put it in a closet. After doing that for several years, I have many piles to go through, most of which can be pitched. I am not throwing away anything sewing related, just that other ‘stuff’. I recycle, give to charity and have garage sales for usable items. I’m sure I can keep up the 14 item project for many months. My kids will thank me for doing this.
