Lazy Sunday

Lazy hot Sunday.  I've been playing in my room a lot today.  I made a block from the Asterisk Quilt-Along


I found a scrap of a blue and green batik that I'd really like to find more of.  I just wanted to try the block to see what it would look like.  And now I'm in the mood to make something blue and green!


And my daily 15-minute ritual inspired by Bumble Beans' 15 Minutes Play blog:


I started with dark and light triangles, but then decided to see what would happen if I cut smaller triangles and bordered them.  I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but I'm having a lot of fun getting there!

Stay cool!

I played in the sewing room on Sunday too.
Blue & green are soothing colors when used in combination. Like the outdoors.

Blue and green have always been a favorite combo of mine. Your fabric selections are lovely.
I don't know which of your projects I'd try first, but both are tempting. For now, I'll watch you play.
