Climbing more steps

I have been just plugging away at these steps and have decided I will be making a whole quilt with them.  It is something I can just add to when I find enough scraps and the blocks are nice for a quick fix if things are crazy and I do not have a lot of time.



I added the orange

Purple. The center is Munki Munki flannel pajamas that Miss Amy Lou Who called to tell me were on CLEARANCE at Marshall's!!!!! As soon as I was well enough I went and snagged them! Thank you Amy!!!!!!

The passionate red! I have come to find that I have very little purple and reds in my stash.  I think these will be the blocks that will take the longest time to finish. If anyone has purple and red scraps that they are looking to swap for something else please contact me :o)

Oh so HAPPY yellow!!!!

The calm blue block


That is all for now but I have some browns  and I may try black too.


I also started a Flickr group for the Cathedral Window pincushion or really anything you make. Please come join and post some photos!!!!!

Have a GREAT weekend!!!!

If you still need purples and reds I have some. I am in need of yellows and oranges. Email me if you would like to arrange a swap. Your step blocks looks terrific. Patty
