There brighter already.
My sewing room is filled with orange brightness. I have Anja of Anja Quilts to thank for this. I agreed to exchange a mini mini with her and her favourite colour is orange. I had a lot of fun playing around with scraps, working in an improvisational way. I've temporarily abandoned my last improv project so it was good to work this way again.( Note to self do more of this it makes you happy.)
Another bright thing is that I have finished my 12 blocks for my Dog Gone Cute quilt. I am not going to show you the last 6 puppies I sewed for the dog gone quilt along ....yet. I am saving those for the November link up when hopefully you will see my completed quilt. I will share my completed pick up sticks block. I'm half way through the fifth. I'm not sure how many more I am going to have to make. I know there are at least 7 more coming my way and I need a total of 20 to make the quilt. They are very fun to make.
In other news I thought about pattern testing for Mollie Sparkles who is one of my favourite bloggers, but in the end I decided against it because I don't have the time. But I will be super excited if I get into the Stash Bee block exchange. I'm confident I can get at least one block done per month. I loved the sense of community that came along with the New Bloggers Blog Hop and I'm eager to continue that on a smaller scale.
And speaking of the New Bloggers Blog Hop and the Fabri Quilt Block Challenge that came along with it, my block has been chosen for inclusion in the 2016 Quilters Planner. This is a wonderful planner put together by Stephanie of the Late Night Quilter which you can read about here, and order here.
I'm waiting with anticipation to get my copy. Not that I think it will solve all my organizational problems but maybe some of them. It will be great to have a resource always on hand to jot down quilting ideas and practice doodling free motion patterns, but what I'm really excited about is that so many of the Fabri Quilt challenge blocks will be in one place for future reference.
I know I only talked about improv a little bit in this post but I'm going to link it up to the Ad Hoc Improv Quilters Linky at Kaja's blog Sew Slowly, anyways.
