When Angela at Soscrappy announced the "color" for April, it gave me pause. Multicolor. Really?
But, like Angela said, we all have those scraps that can't be classified as a particular color because no color dominates -- especially florals and multicolored stripes.
Knowing my sewing time this month is going to be extremely limited, I immediately went down to the s
My 1-1/2" bin had a big stack of yellow strips so I decided to make that my starting point, but I couldn't find enough coordinating multicolored 2-1/2" strips in sufficient lengths to execute my plan. On to the FQ bin where I found a collection called "Arabesque" -- black background with a lot of bright action. Ah-ha! I have tons of black with bright on the shelf I can add.
So here's where I stand, two days into the multicolor month.
Since the blocks finish at 9", a 7x8 setting would yield a nice 63" x 72" comfort quilt. That's 46 more blocks to make. It's the kind of mindless sewing that I should be able to handle this month while I tend to much neglected housekeeping and yard work.
Be sure to stop by Soscrappy to see what other quilters are doing with this month's challenge.
