I hung these blocks on the design wall last night, I made them using "Evelyn". They are my Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2012 blocks. Last month's color was neutral--and I thought the tan and brown combination fit.
The color this month is yellow--I love yellow and probably will make lots of blocks. I had admired the 36 patch quilts I had seen on several blogs last year and wanted one of my own. I've been saving my 4 patches for a strippy quilt. The spinning blocks are fun! If I cut 3 WOF 2.5" strips of both a light and a dark--that's enough to make one 36 patch block, two spinning blocks, and two 4 patches. A good practice for me using Evelyn.
Sew last two rounds on the TATW quilt
Another full week planned. I volunteer Tu-We-Thu this week. I've been waiting to buy a few more flowers--the early spring surprised everyone and my beds/pots are ready but the plants haven't arrived yet! The wild Sweet Williams are blooming and they made me remember how my grandfather would always cut my grandmother a bouquet.

The peonies have big buds on them and I'm already looking for a vase. Wouldn't a mixture of the purple Sweet Willams and red Peonies be pretty?
