I’m really enjoying Debby Brown’s Color Blocks QAL… each month she releases a new pattern and I’ve completed three quilts so far! For the April pattern she used bright fabrics to offset the color blocks and since I have very similar shades in my stash I’m doing a close duplicate.
Here’s her sample:
…and here’s my color pallete
I made a small upgrade to my design wall this week. Hubby and I put it up when we first moved in (it’s just insulation board covered with white flannel) and I’ve been frustrated every time I hang blocks or a quilt because I can never get it straight or level without several attempts and repositioning… so… yesterday I got out a level and drew some guide lines! So simple but it’s taken me 2 years to do it!! LOL
Now, unfortunately I didn’t plan the size of the squares before I started… I just used the width of the level as my guide so the squares are a smidge bigger than 2.5″. It’s ok, I wasn’t planning to use them as any kind of measurement… just a guide to hang my blocks 😉
In other awesome news… both hubby and I are totally vaccinated!! Yay!!
Hubby’s appt was Tuesday and I went with him. I was scheduled for the next day and when we shared that with them they insisted they could give me my second shot now instead of coming back, so that’s what we did!
The only side effects I experienced were a sore arm (although not anywhere near as sore as with the first shot) and I suffered with a headache starting that night, continuing the whole next day. It finally subsided around 9pm Wed night – whew! Hubby didn’t have any issues at all!
That’s all for now… have a great rest of your weekend!
Stay safe and
