Whatever it was, by Sunday afternoon, it had passed and I made some April blocks for the Block Lotto–which I can't share publicly for another week, though some will get a sneak peek later today– and these Briar Patch blocks from Teal scraps for the Rainbow Scraps challenge.
As I was sewing the paper foundation pieced blocks, I thought about how it was one of those old projects that I would likely never have picked up again if not for the rainbow scraps challenge. While I don't hate paper-piecing, I don't think I'd ever choose to make a large quilt of paper-pieced blocks. Making them now, a few blocks each month as part of the challenge, makes them completely do-able and not at all tedious :-)
It has me thinking about how to structure some other golden oldie un-finished projects that I know I'd like finished but don't excite me so much now into manageable bites of time and effort.
This morning, I pulled out the 22 blocks made so far: 4 red ones made in a workshop with Judy Niemeyer, long ago and far away, the rest made so far this year from rainbow scraps.
