I'm still plugging away at those Ocean Waves blocks. Only twelve more to go! I'm still making them one block at a time so I can plan my pressing to make things nest to help me match seams, but I have a good routine so each block is getting made faster than the previous one.
This is not progressing as quickly as I had hoped, but once I had this idea in mind nothing else would do. The only thing to do is keep at it! It will be worth it in the end.
I was very good and did not let this squirrel in the house in the meantime:
I had these all picked out for a sample to showcase the Quick Curves Ruler at the shop where I work, but then we decided several runners showcasing different blocks would be better. There were all those gorgeous spring greens and that little splash of orange and those Modern Backgrounds, all loaded on the cart with nowhere to go. So sad!
This is not on my "to do" list. Nope. Just checked the list again. Not there. This is definitely a distraction (known as a squirrel in this house, as a squirrel can distract the dog from just about anything). But these colors, used in Chic Country, would be perfect for my daughter. I would even use the QCR ruler she gave me for Christmas.... There is now a nice little "Quilt in Progress" beanbag sitting on these fabrics at the shop so they won't get reshelved until I cut off what I need, but the fabrics are not actually in the house yet.
First, the blue one. Gotta go sew so I can finish the blue quilt then let the squirrel in!
