Here they are in the order I've done them:
Block #1 - Attic Window
I must have ripped out the lime green about six times, then when I had it right I trimmed one edge 1/4" too small, so I had to redo both the orange and lime on one side.
Deets: Fabric used: Dilly Dally by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda (orange); Green & Blue - unknown coordinating line
Time: About 2 hours due to my ineptness
Block #2 Autumn Tints
I am using the book as a bit of a guide for colour choices. The colours in the book used Fall-type colours, so that's what I went looking for! Not even close to the book's choice.
This is the block I remembered that the numbers don't refer to the colour choice, but to the sewing order. Took a little bit to figure that one out, but still not as long as the first one.
Deets: Fabric used is from an unknown coordinating line from a sample pack. Took me about 1 hour.
Block #3 Joanne's Basket
The last block of the evening was the basket with the applique handle. I struggled with the book's colour placement, as the centre squares were the same fabric as the background, which to me made the basket look like it had a hole in it. Once I replaced them with the darker green print, it looked finished to me. I forgot that the handle should have been appliqued on the top triangle before sewing it together, so I fiddled with it for a bit to finish the ends of the handle. I'm still not happy with it, but I'm movin' on!
Deets: Fabric: Me and My Sister Designs - Green Dot from Happy, Pink Flower from Birdie (?), Darker Green print from same unknown sampler pack as Block #2
I have several scrappy projects on the go. I've tried to get organized by putting my smaller scraps in colour-coded bins:
But that didn't last long, once Alex discovered them!
Now he is helping me (very slowly) putting them back into the right bins - he's pretty good at knowing his colours, but a 3-year-old's attention span is short so it will be a long process!
