spring fever

Colors in nature is the next challenge for our Fiberactions group.  The reveal is the 15 (Friday).  I won't have mine finished, but above you can see parts of my piece in progress. 
It will get finished, just not by the 15th.

This week is Spring Break and my son is home from school so I took the week off too.  
It's good having everyone back in the nest.  He's helping getting some painting done and I've enjoyed spending the time with him.  

Last week before we started making the painting mess I was able to get these two quilts finished.
These are great utility quilts, which are quilts that are meant to be used as 'blankets'.

This used all scraps. It's always interesting to see how scraps can come together to make something cohesive.

And lavender, teal, cream and brown work up this one. Interesting color combo, but it works and will make a cozy quilt.

Today I'm off to hook up with my friend Sharon.  We try to catch up quarterly so today we were going to work on a project, but maybe we'll just get coffee and visit the bead store.... 
Not that either of us need anything else to think about doing, it's always fun to look.

I love the dimensional pieces, can't wait to see what you are making. I usually make all of my larger pieces to use and I have more fun with scraps than bundles.

That is some killer quilting for utility quilts!

Wow! That is a beautiful result and I just love the colours and the quilting. Do you have a standard size block when you do that...what size do you cut most of your scraps?
