Midweek Makers #423

Welcome to Midweek Makers!

We're having another rainy year in CA, which means all of our storms move across the country resulting in snow for most everyone else. Sorry about that! And it's still just February - hang in there everyone!

While we desperately need rain, it has also put a halt to the rebuild of our detached garage. But with some free time, I've been able to design a QBM block, rework the scrap quilt idea for RSC2024, and make and finish blocks for RSC. Here's my red scrap box for February's red RSC color, as a new and improved version from my original blue one a few months ago.

Before I put my red scraps away, I'll try and make a tall box using a deeper, more burgundy color. The weather is supposed to clear for a few days, meaning any sewing will have to hold for work on the garage. Sigh.

Party attendees shared some fun quilt tops last week. Making a Lather is working on finishing a falling charms quilt,

Time 4 Stitchin
shared quilting details of her snowman quilt,

and Donnleeq is finishing up an attic windows quilt.

I applaud your perseverance on clearing out the UFO's!

My Favorite Patterns


  1. Your scrap box block is a neat one! I'm looking forward to seeing the quilt you make with those. Wishing you a little of both kinds of weather - a rainy day for sewing and a dry one for making progress on the garage!

  2. one of my brother's live about 80 miles east of LA and he is getting a lot of rain in their high mountain desert area too - more rain than they normally get.

  3. Hi Susan, that's a great scrappy fabric box. Thanks for the party!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
