Amazing that I am posting two days in a row but it means I am getting some projects finished and some started.
First, there is always one row left over when I make the 16 patches if using Canadian fat quarters so I have been taking those apart and making 4 patches from the leftover strip. Am adding in a plain square of fabric to create some sort of donation quilt that is using up stash fabric plus the four patches. So far, so good, IF you like purple.
I have my second Yellow Brick road quilt finished. It is large enough to donate to either New Beginnings (mom's who go back to school after giving birth to a child) or Peardonville House which is a home for mom's who are undergoing rehab from drug use and we like to give their children a small quilt to cuddle.
Last December I read somewhere (a place long forgotten) about making a 9 patch a day in 2016. I started making the 9 patches and accumulated quite a few. I added some teal borders to each block while still in Arizona and brought the blocks home. There were lots of blocks but only worked with enough to make a quilt a good size for Quilts of Valour and there is still a bag of blocks waiting for me this autumn when I return. I got the blocks joined, quilted and the binding is done. One more completed quilt from my stash. How come my fabric stash doesn't look any less than a year ago? Some of these teal fabrics are really old and my quilting friends recognized a number of them from early days of quilting.
And now, back to getting more accomplished. I try for an hour of bonding with my machine daily plus, I use my tv watching time to my advantage and work on binding while being entertained by my favourite shows.
