Odds & Ends

Working on a few ongoing projects...

Here are the yellow (yay!) squares for the Rainbow Challenge project I'm working on, along with May's Free-Motion Challenge motif. I like the concept of the "double stipple" but I probably should have practiced on paper a bit more first. It's OK, but I think this pattern could be really jazzed up with some loops or leaves crossing the first wide stipple. Also, it's harder to do a large-scale stipple than a small-scale, because I really have to move my arms to get those large movements across the piece. Gotta practice that some more.
Also, I finally finished one of the April blocks for the Craftsy block of the month. (I'll get caught up on all of these in June.) I liked the English paper piecing method so much that I'm drafting some paper templates for Penrose tiles. Many thanks to Karen for showing me how to invisibly applique these hexes onto the background!
Still to finish this week: Mom's table topper (top is stitched, just needs flannel back & a bit of quilting), architecture challenge, and Color Palette Challenge project. Plus, I need to prepare something to take on vacation with me.
