Catching Up and My OMG

We were in our apartment for most of last week. I intended to get some sewing and cutting done on my RSC blocks but that didn’t happen. On Sunday, I made 3 teal blocks with what was already cut.

There are more scraps to be cut up and more pieces to assemble. I am hoping to get enough for my first Hands to Help quilt for the season. But, if not this month, then the next month. I might even add lattice to make or borders to make it work. First, let’s see how many teal blocks I wind up with and then a more informed decision can be made.

I did pull some of my yellows and golds from Medford; they are with me in Peaks. I will be cutting those up tomorrow or Tuesday when I continue catching up on the teals.

Next up, is my OMG. I am working on my Stay at Home Round Robin although maybe it should be called Stay at Home Round Cardinal. Anyway, it is coming along. I have done week 1 curves and week 2 diamonds. I am still looking at how many of the next 4 prompts I do (stars, signature blocks, applique or rail fence, and churn dash). My plan though is to finish the top, at least, for my One Monthly Goal! Like the end of February, I missed the link-up for this. The real reason I do these is to get them done, so I am still declaring my goal!

    I’m not really familiar with the stay at home round robin Kathleen, but it sounds like some fun. and I love the teal blocks you are making. Turn them one quarter turn, and they present a different look. Hope you have a great day.

    omg for reals! I love all of it. The sahrr is GREAT! very creative use of the prompts and balanced, colorful, full of meaning with the bird singing through it all. I like the open diamonds and that they are balanced around the edge. The first RSC blocks are also terrific. I’d stop everything and do them too if that wouldn’t be a copycat! Maybe I’ll do one for the improv color study this month, and do them next year.

    Your teal blocks are so very pretty!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

    Lovin’ your cardinal project, Kathleen! 🙂

    I have sure enjoyed another year of watching everyone’s SAHRR develop and yours does not disappoint! Love those RSC blocks too. There is never an end to possibilities with RSC ideas is there. Nor, ha, is there ever an end to scraps!

    Hi Kathleen! I apologize for not leaving messages lately but your website is blocked at work for some reason. Annoying! I don’t want you to be stressed for the SAHRR. Remember you can choose not to do a round or two or four. I love the center cardinal – so cute. {{Hugs}} a bunch for you. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Yippee! I can comment again! What is the name of your RSC block? I love how it makes additional circles when placed next to each other. It will be a very cool looking quilt! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    I have mailed a letter to you as well as trying on your site to purchase the pattern for the Miss Molly Bag. To date I have not heard from you and am wondering why? Would you please respond.
