Free and Easy Quilt Pattern Link: Framed Four-Patch

I didn't mean to start another project.  (Where have we heard that before?)

Once again, I blame our Guild.  Last month's Block of the Month looked so easy and refreshing, and the juicy fruit and vegetable fabric rectangles were on offer for free at the Guild meeting.

Since I am the Scavenging Freebie Queen, I took two sets of rectangles, as did my friend Judith.

For the FREE pattern, click on Framed Four-Patch.

I found a good blender and some white scraps from my somehow unshrinkable scrap stash, and one and half hours later, DONE!

I turned these in at last month's meeting, and one lucky quilter won everyone's blocks.  I was actually happy not to win--I didn't want another UFO!

The Yarn Basket

I'm getting ready for the boutique at the quilt guild show, which is coming up soon.

I will be selling (I hope) some of my handspun yarn.

My skill progression shows up right there in the basket:  earlier attempts yielded chunky yarn, and the newer stuff is DK or fingering weight.

Obviously, I lean toward teal, turquoise, and purple.  There's that lone pink and grey skein on top.  I definitely plan to branch out color-wise in future!
