Simple blocks, simple playing with colors, .... and some slow hand quilting.
The colors are inspired by the tempting pastels of a favorite easter candy.
The blocks are partly a result of cleaning out the scrap boxes of saved selvedges. And then stripping them of the selvedge. Ending up with a good variety of skinny strips. Adding wider strips out of the bin holding scrappy strips. Then cutting a lot of 2.5" strips of the main color. Here it is yellow for easter. Making sure there's plenty of variety. And sub cutting them into a suitable length for their final measure of 6"squares.
Sewing the blocks was bliss. Easy, just pairing two and two strips. Then connecting them with a middle one. Ironing all the seams to one side. Squaring them up, they look surprisingly pretty. All 50 of them. Finding their place in a few tabletops. Getting in line to be quilted. First and smallest quilt will be done soon. The rest of them will hopefully be part of decorating the table for easter. If not this year then maybe next?
