With cloudy rainy days and night coming sooner, it’s nice to be working on a happy quilt. Our quilt guild will be collecting charity quilts this coming Monday, and I really don’t want to attend with nothing to contribute.
Some of the members bring bags full of quilts of all sizes. I’m just not as productive, mainly because my body starts to protest when I spend too much time at the machine. The fact that I spend lots of time with many of you by reading and commenting on the great things you’ve been doing may also be to blame. I love every minute of that.
Here’s where I was on my Project Linus quilt last week.
Well, I finally finished it today. I have a stash of several inexpensive 50×60-inch fleece blankets, on which I used the stitch and flip method. It was so easy to add multiple 40-inch strips of pink, along with strips of charm squares in blue to match the blue of the cute owls.
For the borders I used jellyroll strips. I’ve bought several rolls of those in white, black and red Bella by Moda. These strips have pinked edges, so there’s no fraying. I usually get them online from Missouri Star. They are so handy for any kind of patchwork. I’m finishing them with a zigzag stitched border.
As soon as I finish this I’m going to be working on my wallhanging for The Endeavourers Challenge due by November first.
