Scrapy Monday

Design wall additions include pink string blocks for the RSC14 and the February first Saturday block.  Click over to Judy’s DWM post to see more eye candy 🙂

DWM 2-10-14The first Saturday blocks are all batiks with a wow print and are suppose to be in the colors of the Greek Isles.  The medium green-blue color does look like island ocean water to me.  

Feb FS MainI think the RSC pink pinwheels look fine with the first set of sting blocks I with the wide variety in values.

RSC Pink PinwheelsPink StringsMy quilt guild was over the top generous with a gift certificate to The Quilted Fox as a thank you for directing the Quintessential Quilt 2013 show.  Which got me thinking about the 108″ wide Kona cotton I bought for the background of the Benjamin Biggs Wedding quilt because it was only $35.  I liked the color but the courser weave wasn’t as nice to hand applique on.  Given that I had only just begun my first BBW block, I decided to use my gift to indulge in a similarly colored but much finer weave Moda background for my BBW quilt.  It is, after all, a 2 year project and I’ll be ever so thankful each time I work on it for the lovely gift from my guild 🙂  Oh, and a couple of Fox Tails and other lovely red/orange print were added to the gift as well.  Thank you to all wonderful ladies in our guild.
