Flower Basket Border Progress & RSC Blend Blocks

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for the month of April is yellow.  It goes along with my poor droopy and sad daffodils that tried to welcome spring and succumbed to too much cold, snow, heavy rains, wind, etc.

We warmed up a bit towards the end of this week though Thursday was incredibly windy, with some local power outages.

I managed to piece my 3 yellow blocks for my “Blend” project this month and get them sewn on to the others, and here they are on the laundry line.

I hope to applique some yellow Little Baskets during the rest of the month and perhaps get back to my Airship Propeller blocks as well, though at this point I need to lay them all out and determine what colors are needed and what are not, etc.

I did make some progress on the latest border of the Flower Basket Medallion quilt…I added my ‘boy bird’… see how the girl is prettier…and more leaves and berries. I will have to prep more leaves for further applique which I hope to do for Slow Sunday Stitching time this weekend.

( The actual border is a bit longer than this photo but I am just showing progress thus far )

    love that antique stove with the flowers on top! I have an antique stove stored away and have never had any place to put it – maybe one day? most likely I just need to sell it!

  2. I love the antique stove as well and your quilt is looking grand, dear Deb. Happy weekend!

    I’ve had a couple antique stoves in the past, cooked with them for years. Nice to see in a photo but I’m happy with my modern gas range at this point! Weather here is miserable as it has been all spring. Ice storm and possible power outages predicted for late tomorrow into Sunday. It might as well be winter!

    We got snow yesterday and the drooping heads of he daffodils made me so sad. It snowed again last night but it has all melted and the daffodils have perked up (thankfully). The yellow blocks are so cheerful. I love the forsythia branches in the blue enamelware pitcher. So cute.

  6. Ohhhhh just wishing I could send you some of our sunshine from here, we have enough heat to share some around for sure!
    Love your boy and girl little birds!

      Mona I am calling it my “Blend” project but it is actually called “Peekaboo” and it is available on jinnybeyer.com

  9. Enjoy your slow stitching!
    I smiled about the girl bird being prettier… the whole thing looks pretty to me :)

  10. Your blend blocks are looking good together! I like how you sew them all together as you make them-saves a step on the other end!

    Your doing great and keeping up each month with you rainbow challenge. The wind has been roaring here the last few days. It drives me crazy.

  12. Cathy says:

    We are cold but not stormy. Great blend project it is looking good!

  13. Karen Beigh says:

    Love the vintage stove. For a while on House Hunters, people were crazy for vintage stoves in a house.

  14. Susan says:

    I really do like that border! You’re sewing steadily. I agree with your comment about the prep taking more time than the sewing! That’s true with hand AND machine applique. It amazes me how much time the prep takes!

  15. CathieJ says:

    Your quilt and applique are really pretty.

  16. Kathy says:

    your floral vignette is beautiful ♥

  17. Angela says:

    So sad that the snow is still falling. Surely spring will be here soon!
