RSC18 week 12


I’m still waiting for any sign of spring here in Wisconsin.  Please send me some if you have it, to tide me over until April.  Having spent many years in California and Washington State, it’s such a long winter here.  
However, I have been keeping busy with my green fabrics, so cheerful.  The first one is a baby top I just finished piecing.  It makes me feel happy just looking at it. Right now I’m just calling it The Zoo.  


I’m leaving it about 35 inches square after a border or two is added. 
My other project is an adult-sized quilt to donate to Covered In Love.  What better way to use my stash than to bring some comfort to grieving families.  Kat gets them to the chaplain at the hospital in Texas where she works.  She says that you never know what scrap of fabric in a quilt might touch the heart of the recipient, perhaps a cat or a special flower, so anything is welcome.  
Here is a sample of the charm squares with grey spacers which have a soft homey feel.

I’ve got almost all of the 100-plus blocks completed,  This one has almost every color except purple, so I can carry it over until the Rainbow Scrap Challenge April color.  
I was sorry to hear that Mari and others on the East Coast had to dig out from that huge snowstorm.  The good thing is that snow does not seem to harm the fresh growth of greenery and flowers.  I hope all of you have a burst of springtime energy this week.

  1. Our daffodils are in bud, but only those about 2 hours south of here have blooms. We could share our snow, but I won't actually grump about it. It hides some of the brown grass. Just a day of sun and warmer temps, and all this will be a memory. I'm just appreciating the longer days and more light. Hope you have enough to keep sewing by, Paula.


  2. You are doing a wonderful thing with your charity quilt. I need to do some of that. Your post was a great reminder of those in need.

    One of the animal fabrics in your first quilt is the same one I just received in a mystery box. I don't know what I will be doing with it just yet.
