Slow Stitch Sunday Into Monday

I am Slowly Stitching Block 2 for my 


It is a very rainy day here after a very sad day yesterday and
I need to keep my hands busy.

I started slow stitching this project 

This is my first completed block for the

I decided on this layout for my next block because it draws the eye to the corners
so my block designs will look varied in the quilt.

Linking up today with all the wonderful slow stitchers

Sewing Red

It is red month at the

Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017 @ So Scrappy

This started in January while I was waiting for my laser eye procedure.
so I am a very late start.

Better late than not at all.

So yesterday I gathered a handful of red strings ...

and started sewing ...

until I had these random size units.

The rest was a lot of improv piecing, cutting and squaring
to make different types of spool blocks.

This was fun!

I have had the idea of making a scrappy stringy thread spool quilt for some time.

The RSC has provided just the incentive I needed to get working on this project.

Linking Up with Scrap Happy Saturday

There is a lot of wonderful blocks and inspiration in the links.
