I dragged all of my pre-cut squares upstairs and had a lovely time the other night sorting through them all in front of the TV to find what I needed to make the blocks I have set myself for the challenge. I managed to find almost everything I needed and only had to cut a few.
So Friday morning at Friday Quilters I set to and constructed two of the blocks. First up is the Road to Tennessee.
I am absolutely loving this block. I have big intentions of creating a whole quilt from it for Stitching Hearts. Mind you these blocks are going to Stitching Hearts too when the challenge is done at the end of the year, but I want to do one sooner.
Next up is the scrappy 25-patch which I am making from 3" squares.
This particular block I have got organised chaos going on. Can you see that I have tried to create a bit of a design with the darker shades in an "X" across the block? Perhaps that's not what you should be doing with a scrappy block, but there you go, it is done.
Linking up this week with the RSC14 link at SoScrappy. Do go and visit a few of the other blogs for a sneak peek at their creations. There is such a variety of teal goodies being presented!
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
