I've been working, off and on, on the "Easter Toss" project, and I thought you might like to see how it's grown.
This is as large as it's going to get, and I think it's probably around 40" square or so. I'm working on bunnies for the corners, but I'm not far enough along that it's ready to show just yet. I hope when I quilt this, I'll be able to make those tulips look a little less one-dimensional. In truth, if you were able to see it in person, you'd see that the center "petal" is folded fabric--kind of like prairie points--and not sewn down.
I'm happy to hear a number of you are interested in Scrap Basket Sunday, and I like the idea of a blog button, but I'm not sure how to make one. I took a photo to use but I'm not experienced enough with Photoshop to add borders with words--not without spending hours trying to do it. Do any of you know how to do that and want to volunteer to make a button? If so, feel free to grab this photo, or I can email it to you--or you can make something up yourself.
I was only able to make one block today but I'm excited about how the "prototype" turned out and I'd like to make a couple more before I post photos next Sunday. And, as you can see, I went through my much larger scrap bin and pulled out some fabrics to begin with, so I'll have them handy.
I've had a happy and productive day in the Sweat Shop today; but it's back to work in the morning. Still, I think it's things like having to go to work that make us appreciate our play time even more, right? I hope you too had a great weekend!
