Having felt slightly chastised (Just kidding, Wendy!!) for jumping out of order on the Pam Buda project, I went back into the correct order and made the next project, which was another pin cushion. You can never have too many pin cushions, right?? They are fast, easy and useful!
The fabric I used was a little different--the pink was from a purchase of Dutch fabric I bought in St. Marie aux Mines several years ago. I love the colors.
My friend Claire came over this week and sewed the binding down on a charitable donation quilt she put together. It's really perfect as a donation! Those were orphan blocks, if you can believe it. Someone made the blocks but never assembled the quilt. Honestly I think I have a pile of those types of blocks myself waiting for assembly. Anybody else?? vbg
Yesterday I went to the small quilt group meeting I belong to and was so impressed by the productivity of this group. They had piles of about 40 quilts they were delivering to an organization that sponsors kids from families with cancer. I felt very inadequate because I haven't finished a single quilt to donate. I'll show you what I did to remedy that in the next day or so!
Here are a couple of quilts that weren't part of that pile!
This pattern is called scrapbox chevron. It's really cute.
I'm going to go finish my donation project so I can finally say I have gotten something done!! I will show you the finished project later this week. We were supposed to go visit our son in Quantico this weekend but the Marines are keeping him ultra-busy so we have to change it. That means I have a weekend with no plans! We're still hoping we'll get the grandkids for part of the time (I know...)
