I finished up my purple block for this month’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I didn't get anything new worked on this week for the purple scraps but......I did find my blocks from last year. As I looked at this photo I got a new idea for using the Crossroads block tutorial on the diagonal....in color rows.

I love the little strings on the spool blocks and have a whole quilt designed......in my head. I really, really need to get it down on paper or in Electric Quilt. The little strings are from ¾ inch to 1 ¼ inch and a fun way to use up scraps.
Recently there was a EQ Photo Fun Blog Hop and I ended up being the lucky winner! I received the book Digital Essentails and a package of EQ printable fabric sheets. I just picked up some more color ink for my printer and can't wait to use my winnings!
I have used printable fabric sheets before for my quilt labels and really like them. Using coordinating fabrics makes it easy to design blocks and a quilt. You can find some great deals on fabric here also.
I just snapped this so you could see that we finally have green!! In fact it is time to mow. The river is still up, in fact it is right to the top of our wall but it is supposed to be going down. There is talk of rain for the next 3 days so we'll see what happens. The tree is turning green too!
I just took this picture to show you what I'm going to work on today. Right now it is still a little too chilly for me but in a little while I will be out cleaning the leaves out of the rocks and getting ready for mulch. The hostas are coming up finally!
