Feb Friday Night w/Friends

As usual, I got an early start on my Friday Night With Friends. I spent most of the day cutting out the neutral fabrics for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts so I should be able to get the blocks finished really quickly when the next color is announced. 

I also cut out the rest of the pieces for the Rhododendron Trail filler blocks. Bonnie Hunter's directions said we should cut out squares and trim them off to be triangles before attaching the border. I decided to cut out triangles rather than squares because I was able to use smaller scraps and I think I wasted less fabric.

I also finished assembling the 18 filler triangles for the on-point setting.

Thanks to Cheryll for hosting Friday Night With Friends. I look forward to joining you each month.

    1. Thank you. I figured it made the most sense to cut everything out at once, then I could actually put the scrap bin away for now.

  5. It is good to get the prep work out of the way then you can sit and sew.

  7. How's that Rhodo Trail coming along? Looks like you're nearing the end. I collected the clues and will one day make one myself. I thought this year's Bonnie Hunter mystery was a really pretty one. Didn't see any "less-than-pleasing" versions ... great year!

  8. Gosh, you got plenty done! Good forward planning - and nice to see your Rhododendron Trial growing and looking like it's near the finishing line too.

  9. Sounds like you've made really good progress. I'm way behind on Rhododendron. Those hourglass blocks have been slow going.
