Thankfully, I did get some stitching in last weekend and finished two "shades of gray" blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge project.

I really like how this one turned out. Black and white is always so elegant, but the swirly print is a bit modern. Looks like a cup you might drink from in an elegant little tea shop. The next cup is definitely more in the vein of a fun and funky little coffee shop.

Butterflies are one of "my things" as my family terms it, so this quilt definitely needed a butterfly cup. Plus the bright colors in the wings helped the black fit in better with all the other cups.
The fabric is selected for the third "shade of gray" cup, but it's not been cut yet. Hopefully that will happen later today. After that one, the quilt still needs 6 more cups to be complete (I skipped the neutrals and there won't be a color next month). It will be fun checking out my stash for favorite scraps to complete those. Then I need to decide on sashing and border fabrics. I will be sorry to see this project completed, it's been such fun.
