Aurifil Designer BOM, RSC Blocks, and a Spring Quilt Along!

This year my aim is to focus on UFO's, but today I am sharing blocks I've created over the past few months. I hope you will enjoy a bit of catch-uP!

Without an actual plan for layout, I decided I need more blocks to finish my Aurifil Designer blocks for 2014. Last month, I added the New Directions Arrow blocks designed by Sue Marsh:
My 2014 blocks are various sizes, so these arrows I left separate - they may be handy for fitting things together!
Today I finished the newest block; Faux Weave by Mister Domestic:
I did not stray from directions this time, well, other than making mine scrappy! I made eight stripsets 14" long, then sub-cut what was needed for each row. I also trimmed allowances to 1/8" so that I could press toward the red.

I'll be linking this block up over at Pat Sloan's Blog for a chance to win my favorite thread!

Are you tempted by Lori Kennedy's SPRING QUILT ALONG?
I easily justified my latest impulse since I really need some FMQ practice, and it happened that all the HST's required were waiting in my scrap bin. They're leftovers from both my Summer and Winter Gathering Quilts.
The little sandwich was completed in a jiffy, and Ba-da-bing, I am on-board with the Spring Quilt Along hosted by Lori Kennedy of The Inbox Jaunt!

I have lots of new RSC Blocks! In the spirit of limiting any new projects, my plan for Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017 is simply to continue adding Baby Courthouse blocks from 2016. I've been making 4 or 5 blocks each month:

Completing this post feels like such an astronomical accomplishment after procrastinating for so long. I am recovering well following girlie surgery one week ago, somehow scheduled during peak snowbird season. Ty has been great and I have managed to really take things easy. We are expecting my DMIL tomorrow and I will not be required any hostess duties.

May your weekend be filled with Love and Laughter -- Thank you for visiting!

  7. You've been making very interesting things. I like the arrows and the little courthouse blocks the best, probably, but all the 2014+ blocks are wonderful and the mini-quilt is so cute!

  8. Fantastic woven block. I love how the red really accentuates the weave. Great choice of colors and fabrics for that block.

  9. Your Aurifil designer block turned out cute! I have had my eye on that one this month and may try it. I also love your Courthouse Steps blocks. I bet they will be awesome when finished into a quilt. Another one to add to the list!

  10. Yes, I am tempted by Lori's FMQ QAL -- I haven't made my mini because I hope to try some of her techniques on quilt tops that are waiting to be quilted instead. Rest and take care!
