For some reason I decided I was in the mood to tackle my Rolling Stone blocks this week. I think it's the colors I was wanting to play with because I've enjoyed working with these fabrics so very much.
Having several projects going at once always gives me an opportunity to jump around and mix up the colors I'm working with from day to day or week to week. Even if (for example) a couple of my projects have blue in them, I will have different combinations of colors together with that blue which is refreshing and kind of 'wakes' me up if you know what I mean.
Trying to stay organized with my piecing
Chain piecing is definitely something I try to do as it seems to burn through the piecing so much faster. I have a tendency to get in a zone though, so I have to be sure and stay very organized with my book right in front of me or a finished part (or block) for quick reference.
Rolling Stone parts
I love seeing the parts start to come together even if occasionally I start to question my fabric combinations. The thing with scrap quilts is that you never really know until the end when you put it ALL together. The plan for these blocks involves putting them with my Scrap Basket centerpiece. It's all still a bit iffy as to layout, but the idea would not leave me alone.. so onward ho!
The wrong colors
These fabrics and colors seem so whimsical, vintage and modern all at the same time--a great project to work on right now as the weather wants to be gray and gloomy right at the moment. I just realized today that the center squares for the Rolling Stone blocks were cut out of the various colors instead of the background blues. *groan... That's me. Wasting good fabric because my brain refuses to think straight when I'm trying to be creative. What's up with that anyway?
