Got the Blues?

We have been singing the blues around here this weekend. After a week of increasingly sluggish cooling performance by our air conditioner, it quit working altogether yesterday. Fortunately, we were able to get a technician out to look at it this morning--a new fan motor got us up and running again. As I write this, the temp in the house has come down from a high of 85 yesterday afternoon to 78 today. We were lucky to endure only one day of discomfort.

There have been many blue scraps getting cut and stitched together this week, but I don't seem to have many finished blocks to share today. I've been stitching triangles to make blue Ribbon Star blocks, but I'm waiting until I finish making all of the HST's before starting to join them together. I did finish six of the Scrappy Trips blocks that I'm making to combine with the red blocks I made in March. I have 20 red blocks and plan to end up with 10 in blue.

I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!

  1. Your BLUE Scrappy Trips turned out well. Not too many more to go!! I'm looking forward to seeing these combined with your red ones. Congrats! on getting an A/C tech out right away. Nothing worse than super-heated house on a hot and humid Summer day!!

  2. Love the Scrappy Trips! That's going to be a fun quilt. :D

  3. So glad your ac got fixed so quickly. Your blues sure look nice and cool. Keep up the good work!

  4. Lovely Julie. I can't wait to see this one finished. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  5. Love the blue Trip blocks. Those will look awesome with the red ones. Glad you were able to get the air conditioning fixed relatively quickly.
