Sunday Sane Quilting


Yesterday was a quiet day here and I spent all day catching up on some 'sane' quilting.  I love the Mailblocks group since they have a block lottery every month and everyone pledges so many blocks of the same pattern and then one lucky person wins them all - usually enough for a whole quilt.  March's block was Monkey Wrench in white, light blue and dark blue.  In spite of my resolution not to sign up unless I already have the blocks made, I couldn't resist this one.  And, since I didn't win, I spent most of yesterday making the 8 blocks I pledged to mail to the lady with the good luck.

This is how my eight blocks looked when they were all done and laid out together.  I couldn't help thinking maybe my luck would change so I went ahead and made the blocks for April as well.  Now I have them ready I will be on time mailing them out to the winner at the end of the month.

This month the chosen block is Double Square and they are to be done in light and dark of whichever colour you choose.  The winner of these blocks should end up with a nice scrappy looking quilt.  I chose these light and dark greens for my blocks.

Here they are laid out together.  This block went together really easily - much quicker to do than the Monkey Wrench ones were.  Anyway, it was a couple more things off my "to-do" list!
