5 quilts May 6, 2022

 my last 5 quilts progress report April 25, 2022

1. Rainbow scrap challenge - green-  I made 7 candy blocks. This makes 35 blocks in rainbow colors for this quilt. I am aiming for 56. I like making them and it uses the smallest pieces, so it is a new favorite.

2. rhododendren mystery - hunter -   I need to cut 1 inch squares for cornerstones in garnet. yuk

3. Boho heart - I am working on section 1- the farthest left section. It is squirrelly to put together. I have to take a break when it gets too confusing. When I come back, it makes more sense. I did this at our guild's open sew where I had room to lay it out and see what I was doing.

4.. maple leaves - I am still adding sashing to each block. I thought the darker colors would be fun pops of color, but, they stand out in the picture a little too much. I decided I would turn a few leaves the wrong way, too. Just for fun.

5.. fair and square - I have the framing around the blocks, and I have sewn the string triangles, into 20 sets of 4. 

MY  next on the longarm of my own quilts in the 'to be quilted' closet.  As I am finishing old UFOs, the number is growing.
