Head on over to The Cotton Robin for the Big Reveal of this year's round robins!

This was my center block (which came from Skyberries Handmade -- see the tutorial here)

and this was the terrific quilt I received back

So much fun again this year!

things are looking blue

This month's color is BLUE on the rainbow scrap challenge.  I've made my standard "crayon" and "circle of squares" blocks.

I also finished a big, scrappy top that I started a while back.  It was originally from a Fons & Porter pattern called "Tossed Greens", but I used wider strips, and got tired of it after 12 blocks so I just added some scrappy sashing until it was a useful size.  

Here's a recent photo of Linus and Ivan, still crammed into a little bed meant for one cat.  I call this "forbidden love".
