I don't care about the Super Bowl, but I did make a goal this week. Here are the 17 mug rugs for the Magpies' Texfest meet up next month. Making them was my OMG -- One Monthly Goal -- for February. They used a bunch of bandanas and 2-1/4 yards of fabric.
Brown is the color for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge . I made the nine brown Snail's Trail blocks for the Block Lotto in January (and posted the photo last week) so I thought I should come up with another project for the RSC. When I sewed 2" squares into nine-patches for Dancing 9's (photo last week) I pulled out all the red squares and started leader-endering them. What to do with those twosies? Jacob's Ladder would be fun. But what to use for the HSTs? Ah! Brown!
These blocks are 9-1/2" unfin. I don't know how many I'll make or how I'll set them.
NLCQG (my guild) members made Heartstrings blocks at the January charity sewing meeting. I said I'd quilt up to five 48-block quilts if they'd make the blocks. At this week's meeting the blocks began to come in -- more than 125 so far, with more on the way. We'll donate the quilts to a local agency.
