Midweek Makers #418

Welcome to Midweek Makers!

Notice the birthday theme? Yup, it was my birthday yesterday, and I'm now SEXTY! That's what my mom exclaimed when she turned 60. Well, I'm finally there and get to be sexty for a whole year - woohoo!

I got a start on my green RSC block, though I think I'm being a bit fussy with it. I'm trying to achieve a random look, as if these scraps were tossed into a bin. For me, that means no seams going top to bottom to join units, which is rather difficult to achieve. I think I'd better get a grip on this idea, cause seriously, they're just scraps!

Since my share is rather unimpressive, let's look at some pretty flimsies and quilts from last week. Dragon's Heart Quilting finished her broken bricks top,

Making a Lather finally finished an adorable crayon RSC from 2019,

and Scrapbox Quilts is finishing up her Fall Foliage quilt top.
