Rainy Day Blues....

 With all of the Blue Scraps all over the sewing room, you would think a storm came through.  They are now sorted and cut ..... ready for more sewing.  The Jacobs Ladder Blocks are done along with 16-patches.

I have added the Blues to the Wall -- by the time the Rainbow Challenge Ends, I will have enough to do 2 quilts using the Jacobs Ladder.  The blocks finish at 16" square.

Here is one of the reasons, I have been so quiet -- lots of quilting going on.  Graduation Gifts, Trunk Show Quilts and H2H Quilt -- all happening at one time.

Quilt Name:  Acappella
Designer:  Jamie Janow Elfert (Me!)
Size:  84" x 95"
Colors -- All of them!

I usually show the backings after the projects are done -- but this one is awesome.  I only had 6 yards and I was short about 5" of width.  So I added this brightly covered strip that has been in my stash for years.

Linking up with Sarah with Confessions of a Fabric Addict, at her Whoop Whoop Party.  And Angela with the Saturday Rainbow Challenge.

Have a Great Mothers Day!
