The Blues Chapter II

Twilight Flight
Flying Geese
6 inch

I'm still working out in the gardens a lot and helping hubby through his recovery so have not found a lot of time to sew. But I did work on the 2.5 inch width scraps this week and did end up making a few blocks and processing scraps. 

I only had a few dark blues for Geese for these blocks but I did have a few other colors of 2.5 inch scraps I had thrown into that project bag while processing scraps so sewed them up too. 

4 inch

Last week I made the little windmills from 1.5 inch width scraps that were long enough and this week I made them from the 2.5 inch width scraps that were long enough. I have a big bag of them so one of these days I should count them and decide what I'm going to do with them. 

I cut up the remaining 2.5 inch blue scraps into:

1. Sets of four 2.5 inch squares - I have two projects that use them.
2. 2.5 x 4.5 rectangles  -- into the Parts Dept. 
3. 2.5 x 3.5 rectangles - coin quilt layout by value
4. 2.5 inch squares - into the Parts Dept. 
5. 1.5 x 2.5 rectangles -- I have two projects that use them

And sew on...

Lots of fun blues in your scraps! I'm a fan of those twilight geese, too. Hope hubby has had a good week!

Your hubby must have had a better week because you sure did a lot of sewing Plus the gardening this week, Plus cutting all those pieces. Awesome job! Still praying for you both. Enjoy! ;^)

Love the twilight geese. Can't wait to see the finish. I think you should make this one for yourself and your hubby.

Usually "low volume" is made from light fabrics -- how terrific to see low volume in darks!

Lots of lovely blues in these quilts, and I love the 16 patch in your previous post, it's a while since I made one but I have heaps of 2 and 1/2 strips in boxes, perhaps it's time I made another one.

I LOVE those flying geese! Gorgeous!
So what are you up to with those matching 2.5" squares? (Because obviously I need another quilt idea...)
