Last month I seriously doubted that I would be able to find enough yellow scraps to make this month's blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, hosted by Angela *here*.
But I did manage to scratch enough together to make them and here they are —
|Yellow Great Granny block.|
Notice here I use the monthly colour as a guide only!
|My first three Great Granny blocks.|
I'm really happy with how these ones are coming together.
|The 'Sampler' Star block in yellow.|
One thing I realised after deciding to do the sampler blocks all with the same centre is that I was ending up with seams all meeting at the same point resulting in a bulky seam.....so I'm having to remember to press seams apart. It's lying a lot flatter now.
|My two yellow cat blocks.|
(From the 2103 Oh Franson! Cat quiltalong)
|This is a pattern from Ravelry, found *here*.|
There were problems accessing the pattern but the link appears to be working now.
While I was making the green blanket I got thinking about one I had made years ago when I was expecting my first baby. I've pulled it out and given it a wash and a freshen up and I'm happy it has survived the years in a box in the shed!
|What's different about this one is that it is Hairpin Crochet.|
|You can see the lacy effect of the Hairpin lace better here.|
Once I remember how this technique goes, I'm keen to make something else with it!
As you can see, I've always enjoyed playing :-)
I still haven't decided on my next travel project, only a few more days till I hop on the plane so I really must make a decision!
See you next time, happy creating and thank you for visiting,
