Weekly Work in Progress Update #2

Well, this is a surprise - managing to write some notes for a second week time!  But as I didn't have any pictures until today, didn't publish the post!

Two weeks ago:
Saturday - all-day sew-in with monthly quilt group - put two sets of blocks together (borders next), and stitched the centre of Celtic Solstice (inner border and pieced borders next)!  Yay, now have clear conscience to join in with Bonnie Hunter when she releases the first part of her year end mystery later this month.  Added two more bias strips to Sim's Curvy Squares.

Sunday - refolded about 40% of fabrics to get them to fit in wire drawers in cupboards (did another 40% about two months ago) - the rest will remain as is for now.  This is the start of a big sort out - there is a need to cull the clutter that breeds when the door is shut.

Created this table runner for an early Christmas gift.

Three blocks measuring 5" by 18.5" for December's Block Lotto. Ridiculously easy to make from scraps!  I can see more of this for fun in the future.  There are lovely photos of quilts made by Maree with scraps on this site.
Added the orange bias strips to this work in progress.
 Prepped some 8 cm diameter hexagons for a community project, only due in Feb (so I am getting ahead on some things!)
November's colour at Soscrappy was lime green.  I had pulled out all the scrap and string pieces in this colour at the beginning of the month, and the first chance I had to do anything with it was this past Saturday (December already!), when it turned into all of this.... a slab of strings, four kite blocks, and 13 made fabric pieces.  I seemed to have lot of 1.25" plain lime strips, and I don't remember what project they came from, but glad they were there as they have a nice unifying effect on the made fabric. This is going to be the basis for 2016 for using up the scraps.  Not quite quilts, or even blocks yet, but moving in right direction!
More to follow soon!
