A New Adventure ...

Can you guess why this box full of fiber goodness arrived at Sophie Junction today?

My New Adventure

I will share more when I can take (better) photos in natural light. In the meantime, I confess that coming home after a hard day at work to a beautiful box-full of Aurifil and Superior Threads and some amazing batik fabrics is just the fiber therapy that I needed.

More Playing with (Small) Scraps

Purple and Teal ScrapsI have been making more made fabric squares ... mostly because I don't have a lot of scraps large enough to do something useful for the Rainbow Scraps Challenge.

These two squares are approximately 7 1/2 inches square: purple to finish up the January color for the Rainbow Scraps Challenge and Teal for the new month.

I used the 4-at-once no-waste method to make flying geese from each square and made a 12-inch version of this month's block for the Block Lotto, Dutchman's Puzzle.

Purple and Teal Scraps
My Dutchman's Puzzle quilt block pattern includes my tips for making flying geese units three ways, including my favorite (used here).

I also included measurements for making the block in sizes from 4 inches (finished size) to 16 inches.

There's also a coloring sheet to trying your own color combinations.

On the Block Lotto this month we are playing with combinations with Pantone's Color of the Year, Greenery.

This choice made me happy, but then again, I've never met a green I didn't like ...

You can find my pattern on Payhip–clicking the pattern cover image will take you there.
