Now that Quilt Market is in my rearview mirror, I can kick back and leisurely work on anything I feel like working on. Today I decided to start putting my Lil' Orphan Scrappy BOM together.
I'm slowly selecting the fabrics down at the shop for the corner triangles. The eight blocks you see here will be in the top row. Over the next few weeks, I'll be selecting more fabrics for the corners to make this one really scrappy.
Those of you in the BOM program will be receiving the exact same fabrics that I've used. I'll be making up a master layout sheet for you.....but not this week.
I also have a building project in the works. This little foundation pieced block is only 4" square.
I added it to the rest of the neighborhood surrounded by skyscrapers.....the 6" blocks. The foundation and rotary cutting directions are HERE.
I received some exciting news about Butterscotch Baskets this week. She is going to pack herself up and ship herself off to Quilt Haven on Main in Hutchison, Minnesota. This is the home quilt shop for Thimbleberries designer Lynette Jensen. Butterscotch is a mountain girl, so she will fit right in to the Minnesota lifestyle.
After she stays there for a few months, she's headed to Australia! I don't know where in Australia, but I'd better get her a passport! My baby is going to be a world traveler while her mom stays back in the States. Kids these days, you raise them, give them wings and they fly away.
This Memorial Day weekend is going to be spent with the family so you won't be hearing much from me as we will have a house full of kids, and grandkids. If the water isn't too cold, (which it will be) the kids will probably be in the lake this weekend. The lake is filled with the water from the Spring thaw.....chilly! They will have goose bumps on their goose bumps. I have to clear away my quilting from the dining room table to make room for games, games and more games. It is so nice that cell phones don't work in the mountains. Everyone stays engaged with each other and not their phone.
Be safe out there this weekend.
