Second Month...Where did the Time Go?

February is almost done! I guess I don't need to tell you all that. You know what day it is!

I did a few more blocks in the color of the month and I am all ready for a new color. I was looking back through my blocks and was getting pretty bored with the same ol' scraps showing up in block after block, But better in blocks that will be turned into quilts eventually than to waste away in a plastic container in the back of my closet!

Since it's a short month, it felt like it went by faster. I kept thinking I've got to hurry up with my blocks, there aren't as many days! Here are the last of my blocks for the month. I got quite a few Tula Pink blocks done from her book "City Sampler 100 Modern Quilt Blocks". I had more planned, but was running out of the variety of scraps needed to do them any justice, so I relegated the others I chose to the month when we do greens. I got my three boots blocks in this months colors, two Wonky Log Cabins and three QAYG strip blocks. By the end of the year I will have a boatload of quilts to finish! That should get me through next winter just fine!

Without further ado:

The last two Tula Pink blocks for this month.

Two more cute Boot Blocks!
I still love the boot blocks to pieces. I am still struggling with the foundation piecing. I haven't fully absorbed the technique. Each time I do them I bring up a video that shows in great detail how to do the piecing. The video I found to be the best for me is Teresa DownUnder on YouTube.

I can't wait to see what everyone has done this week, and then, I can't wait to see what the next color is! See you all at Angela's place!

Yay for a boat load of quilts to finish at the end of the year because of RSC! (Or should I say BOOT load???)

I have let all my peeps know I like scraps so they give me theirs like a fountain of youth. I do not run dry with choices. It's the grand mix that makes me happy. I also buy bags of scraps from stores instead of yardage. They are usually cheap and I get such a mix of shade and texture that way. Your blocks are great. The sentiment of might as well use it in a quilt instead of storing it is important too. Leeanna

Your boot blocks caught my eye at Scrap Happy - Teal at So Scrappy. They are really cute! I am wanting to learn Foundation Paper Piecing, but am somewhat nervous. Your blocks are really encouraging to me! Thank you for sharing!
