In anticipation of my driving back up to the cabin, I decided I needed to get my August mini done since the month is drawing to a close fast and furiously!
I found these blocks in a zip lock bag on a bookshelf in my sewing room and decided I could just put them together and call it good. I'm meeting my friend Sandy who does my long arm quilting on Monday and I wanted to have something to give her! Note that it needs to be pressed!
I pulled a couple of stash yardage to put it together and have to say that to me, it's MEH!!
So I scouted for a floral border and grabbed this French General:
I think it's still BLAH... Maybe it's the blocks that are just boring; I don't even remember making them, to be honest!
Then I thought maybe I'd perk it up with something wild and crazy and give it to a kid.
Any thoughts? Or suggestions? It is definitely going to be a donation quilt, I'll tell you that! But I did use up random blocks that were sitting on a shelf...that zip lock baggie is now empty and ready to be re-used... so that's something, right??!!
I have also been slowly playing around with a panel I bought last month, with the intent of making it into a kid quilt. My son's wife is due to deliver their baby in a couple of weeks and I think it might make a cute baby quilt for the new grandson!
It was a large panel with lots of cars; I cut them out at 8" and am adding bright and fun sashings. Cute, don't you think??
Hope you're having a great weekend!! I'm looking forward to getting some sewing done this week before our friends arrive.
The cabin is EMPTY... I see ghosts everywhere--the kids just left on Monday and my memory of them taking over the cabin is so fresh... I see them doing everything. But that's life, right?? They are already back in school and their month with us at the cabin is a memory.
