Plaids, polka dots, and stripes

Today, I didn't have tons of time in the studio, but I did want to work on creating new blocks for the latest challenge over at 15 Minutes Play. Victoria has asked us to create two blocks each using plaids, stripes, and polka dots. Fortunately, I have lots of that in my stash. I couldn't begin to use all of it in these two blocks, but I had fun making a dent.

I love all the beautiful colors. I think there are plaids in all colors. I have red, orange, green, tan, blue, and all combinations thereof. After I made a pile of scraps on the cutting board, I started grabbing pieces and sewing them together. I just kept sewing them together and the new fabric kept growing. I tried a set-in corner, but it was a struggle. I really need to figure out how to do that without so much stress. I thought about creating some curves, but elected to save that for another project.

Tomorrow, I hope to spend much more time in the studio. I want to get the chemo quilt all pieced and onto the quilt frame. I think that is doable. I need to get it done so I can deliver it Sunday evening. I will post progress photos tomorrow.
