Last Friday, Bonnie Hunter released, for sale, a new scrap using pattern called Catching Rainbows. I have been waiting to get started on it since she started constructing the blocks a few months ago. Its a pretty simple block, I have made three in a short time. They are like potato chips though, I want to make more, the quilt BH made has 72 blocks. I don’t know it I will want the “whole bag of chips” but these are fun to make now.
On my virtual design wall, are the four H2H tops I have made so far. The flannel scrap quilt, the blue and yellow, the green blue and yellow one and the pink one. Sorry for the lack of creative names. These all made up pretty quickly, I want to get them quilted this coming week. The pink one used up another batch of scraps, yay!
I put my Evolution quilt on the frame yesterday, and started quilting it with a feather/bubble type panto. I am using Microquilter, in a dark gray, that blends with the colors on the top. Was having a bit of trouble with the thread breaking in the first row, like eight times (eye-roll). It seemed to calm down a bit for the second row. Might be because its a new spool of thread and it jumps off the spool a little erratically. I might try a little sew-ers aid today, might be a bit of static too. That’s what makes long arm quilting so much fun, tracking down and fixing troubles to get the quilt quilted.
Progress is being made on the Strawberry Fields stitchery. It’s still in the new and fun phase, but it will be a faster finish, as it is a bit smaller than Pet All the Dogs.
Linking up with Judy at Small quilts and Doll Quilts for Design Wall Monday today.

What great blocks! Bonnie does make big quilts, but that’s what’s so great about block based designs.
Love all your quilt tops.
Thank you, it feels good getting some things done, while starting new ones.
Your blocks look great, I am drooling over what I think is the Evolution quilt. I love the pink.
I’ll post about Evolution on Thursday, see you for Put your Foot Down.
