Lime is the the color this month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge .
Here's my bubble block.
And, speaking of blocks, I won the Block Lotto! I will get 42 Twinkle Stars to add to the six that I made.
The United Methodist Women will have tables at two craft fairs this month. I made five table runners using 6.5" crazy-pieced Christmas blocks left over from this project back in 2010.
Each runner has a different back.
I'm making Christmas potholders from blocks-on-hand, too.
I've used different colorways, fabric genres, and strip sizes for this year's HeartStrings quilts. A back issue of "Easy Quilts" had a pattern that inspired me to try a different design for the 11th HS quilt. I assembled it Saturday. I'm a month ahead!
