I have had a good start to 2018, sewing-wise! On Friday, less than a week after a fun class of Playing with Stripes, I finished piecing together a free-form mash-up of various sized blocks, basically from a 1.5m piece of striped fabric. Only one wonky bit, which is fixable. Quite happy with this cot-size top. It's the next to be quilted.
Then finished the Bonnie Hunter Mystery, On Ringo Lake, about 60" x 72". Well, I count a top to be finished, for now! Used 32 of the 50 blocks, so will make another small quilt with all the spare parts. Or I might finish piecing last year's one!

And besides making three Block Lotto blocks, the best part of January was sewing along under the driving force of the 2018 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I think that this is the first month that I have managed to sew all the pre-cut sizes I store, in the colour of the month, Light Blue. The haul includes: 45 x 3" nine-patches for Jack's Chain (I think this will be a long-term project), four Squared Away blocks (2018 project - only use pre-cuts!) from Soscrappy. Other bits sewn were piles of five by 2.5" x 4.5" bricks into graduated monochrome blocks, lots of pairs of light and medium 2" x 3.5" bricks into squares, and a few double 4-patches using 2" and 3.5"" squares (which missed the photo!), about a dozen 2" wonky windmills (also missed the photo) and three wonky nine-patches from the short bits.
