182 Day Solstice Challenge

I decided to join the 182 day Winter Solstice challenge that Pat Sloan is hosting. There is a blog for the patterns and a Facebook group to show off your blocks. The blocks come out every Wednesday and we are six blocks in so far. Plenty of time to catch up if you want to join.

No surprise that I'm going scrappy with my version.

Block 5 is supposed to have a basket in the center but I'm not sure if I will add it or not. Some people don't want to do applique but I love applique. I'm just not sure about the basket. While I was sewing the block, I kept thinking that it needed a bird in the center instead. We'll see what I decide as time goes on.

I haven't been sewing precision blocks in awhile so it took me a few times to find the 1/4" on my machine again. I might need to make the first two blocks over again so they fit accurately into the quilt.

Looking forward to Wednesday...



There you are--thought maybe you had left town!!!!!
love the blocks you have made so far--
good going--
I am doing the scrappy color challenge each month--this month having been purple--
the thing is I really don't have any scraps as I brought so little fabric in the movie down because of the cost of shipping--
keep stitching-
enjoy the moments, di
