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 )
