This week I am thankful for the regular rain that we have been getting. It's keeping the ground moist which is making my weeding efforts much easier. Well that and the fact that I ahve a lot of weeds in a small area. My bucket only took 30 minutes to fill today.
I had 10 entries for the tie dyed t-shirt drawing last week and the winner is #9, Jody, who said:
Vacation?!? What vacation? Oh, the one in my mind!!!
She lives in Alaska so maybe the shirt will make her feel Spring even if it hasn't quite arrived yet.
Let me give you a little background before I tell you about this week's prize. When I dye the gradients I use some waste strips of muslin in the bin to help control the flow of the color on the cloth. The strips are between 5 and 7" wide. They get some great texture and color blending and I hoard the fabrics like a crazy woman. It's these fabrics that I used in my Catena quilt 2 years ag0.
Well, as always, the quilt had leftovers. I used some of them to make some placemats last summer but I don't have plans for the rest of the leftovers. Most of them are these paired blocks that are 6.5" square.
If you would like to win the Catena scraps just leave a comment on this post telling me what you like to do with your scrap fabrics.
