The first clue was posted at the end of June, and I resisted joining in for several weeks (too many other projects hanging around my sewing room.) Then one weekend near the end of July, I was putting away some pre-cut squares and realized that I had a plethora of 2" squares in blues--that was the beginning. I started by sewing my blues into pairs, which later become 4-patches--over 180 of them!
|Blue 2-patches, sorted light/dark|
|Blue 4-patches in stacks of 10, plus extra squares at the right|
My original plan was to use yellow as the second color, but I was also considering white/cream/beige as the alternate. When I asked my husband his opinion, he pointed to the logo on my Milwaukee Brewers sweatshirt and asked "How can you doubt that yellow is the right choice?"
I proceeded to pull out all the yellow 2" squares I could find, plus cut many more from strips and stash. Here is the collection of golden goodness.
|130+ yellow 4-patches in stacks of 10|
It's not too late to join the fun, and it really is as easy as Kevin promised. You can find his intro post HERE, the first clue HERE and the second clue HERE.
I'm linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday, Oh Scrap! at Quilting is more fun than Housework, Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, Moving it Forward at Em's Scrapbag and Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt.
Happy quilting everyone!
