A little of this, a little of that

I am still playing with the "ugly" fabric challenge.  I have the sashing on each piece, and I think I have the arrangement I want.  Now, I just have to make it all fit.  A little trimming here, a little adding there.  I plan on playing with the quilting by following the patterns on the focus pieces.  I need to get this sewn together soon because I have other work that needs to go on the design wall.

Bright yellow is the color of the week at the 15 Minute Play color challenge.  This is not my favorite color, so I don't have much.  A while back, I asked for some scraps for another project, and I still had little bits, so I cobbled together some fabric, grabbed some blue scraps, and came up with this.  It is a 7.5" square.  Willa asked me to take a photo of all the blocks I have created so far for the color challenges, so here it is.

They are all very different.  Sometimes, I wish I would have made a plan to make them more alike so I could create a quilt when the challenges are over.  On the other hand, I have been having great fun just enjoying the process of playing with the colors.  Sometimes, that is the most important thing.
Tomorrow, I have a training all day so I won't be in the studio.  I will be back on Sunday, then I have all week to play.  Bella will be with her other grandparents.  I am looking forward to hours of creative time.  Until Sunday, joyful quilting, everyone.

Nice blocks! Both the "play with color" and the "ugly fabric" challenges look like a success and sound like a lot of fun.
