Finishes and a Start

I finished block 8 for the Jelly Roll Sampler. This one was a bit tricky. With my fabric, I definitely needed my background fabric in the middle to break up all of my busy prints. The outer border is a bit wonky, but the block measures 12 1/2 like it should be, so I am happy!



I signed up for Stephanie's "no strings attached challenge" quite a while ago. Of course I procrastinated and my intended tablerunner is now 2 potholders. I have the muslin cut for more squares, so maybe I still will do the tablerunner....Christmas scraps???



Now on to something new and refreshing.....a modern siggy swap that Julie is hosting. This one is simple and fun. I am using Neptune by Tula Pink. Lots of blues and greens. I haven't used those colors together recently and I am looking forward to seeing them come together. This one is due July 1st.....that is coming up soon!

Looks great. Love the idea of the potholders. I have been too busy to carry on with the jelly roll quiltalong. I'm way behind. Weather has been fantastic. Have a great weekend!
