A friendgave my daughter craft kits for Christmas, and I finally broke down and started the Raccoon assembly process. Kendra’s not quite old enough to sew, although I am going to require that she help with some of the stitching and the stuffing!
This pile is evidence that quilting has driven me crazy. I have a dozen (or more) other projects, and yet I could not resist the temptation of starting a mystery quilt for Quilts of Valor. LeAnn designs great patterns, so check out her website. I haven’t finished clue one yet, but the end of the school year is approaching so maybe this will be a June finish.
The football quilt is a commission project for my neighbor’s son. I have about half the blocks done with the first round of sashing. There will be a second round of sashing sothe red squares are sort of a chain between the blocks. Does anyone know of a good football-themed pantograph?
And some shopping…our guild had a meeting last weekend and the vendors enticed me with sales like “Fat Quarters…Buy 5 and get 1 free!” I’m trying to keep my selections tone on tone since those play well in scrappy designs. I bought full yards of the red, blue and gold in the bottom right – good colors for QOVs. And the purple and green on the top right were part of my raffle winnings! Yep, lucky me, I got the “Lavender Blooms” basket with 5 half yard cuts. Not bad for the cost of the tickets.
