Ending the month with sunshine and some new projects
These are some of the blocks that have been handed in to me from the hugs in a mug for Quilts of Valour. Gives me ideas for what fabric choices to use for the next sets that I make. Thanks to all of your who are contributing and donating to Quilts of Valour.
This was yesterday's project. I saw a method online using charm packs for 9 patches and then slicing diagonally and adding in a strip of fabric so played with a charm pack that I had on hand. Now, I need more of those charm packs and found two at my local quilt shop!
On Wednesday, Marge showed us a Turning Twenty quilt and said she made it in a couple of days so grabbed 20 fat quarters and started cutting yesterday afternoon and laid out my blocks. Ready to stitch the rows together.
But,, first I have some bindings to make and a two quilts that need quilting for my good friend Annie B who has had a second stroke. And, I got motivated to cut out the fabric for a kit I had purchased for half price with football fabrics!
Time to get my machine purrrrring!
