I found some pretty tulips at the grocers yesterday. It's always helpful in the dead of winter to be reminded of the coming spring. They are keeping me company as I continue to work on my scrappy trip along quilt.
I have 16 of the 36 blocks put together. The other day I sat and just chain pieced all the strips so now I can just cut the tubes, arrange and sew. I know that many of the quilts being made have specific color placements but I wasn't overly concerned about that. I like the true scrappy nature of the quilt. I will play around a bit with the design when finished.
50 degree temps and rain gave way to a night of snow and ice. So today Maddie has a snow day. I've got a roast in the crock pot and I'm itching to sew. Have a good day!
