Another bit of "Trip Around the....Squirrel!"

After a nice weekend off, I am back at the Squirrel quilt.  I did two sections yesterday and joined them.  I have four more sections going today. I am chain piecing the strips.  You can see that under my presser foot and pulled out across the completed section.
I am doing each section a bit differently to keep it "odd" and thus keep with the name it has been given.  Since several of the fabrics were fat quarters, in each section some of them are replaced with different fabrics.  I call it "controlled scrappy" quilting.  I am trying to keep the colors similar.

I got a great Happy email today from Melissa at "Happy Quilting."  I won last week's Terrific Tuesday prize.  The prize is six fat quarters of Bella Solids and five spools of Aurifil thread in matching colors.   My Tuesday is now officially Terrific!  (and there is a new giveaway today that you may want to go check out. I didn't enter this one since I just won.)

I love the colours you are using in this quilt. My granddaughter just wove a wall hanging that combines blues and beige and it looks very nice.

Thanks for sharing your process, you think on your feet.
Squirrels are unpredictable and clever that's what makes them so entertaining.
