Two more blocks finished up for my solids challenge quilt.

I had to add a tiny bit of print for the birds eye 'cuz all the solids looked odd.
March and April blocks done
So far it's been a fun, simple project. Not nearly as stressful as I thought it could be, working with pure solids combined with applique! I've also finished up the applique bits for my gold and blue improv. string blocks pictured below. Still need to sew the rectangle units with the applique to the string blocks, but in the meantime I've been playing with them on the wall.
Hmm... Not sure what I'm doing with this particular quilt, but the fabrics are definitely working their charm for me. I will have nine blocks in all which feels like a good start for something. Something quite nebulous for now as I can't quite picture where I'm going! It's been a different kind of project for sure. The applique addition was an impulsive move, but one that felt right. And for now, that's all I have to go on. What feels 'right'......
