In which I show you my blocks so far in the Project Linus Mystery quilt for this year. Weeks 1-3 are complete! Meanwhile I’m working away on turning ALL.THOSE.GRANNY.SQUARES. into a blanket to turn in a week from Saturday, so that I can move on to week 4’s pattern for the mystery quilt, 2 log cabins.
In which I show off my first week’s blocks for the new Project Linus Mystery Quilt “Logey Bear Leads the Way”. This year I’m using all stash fabrics/scraps. The Pfaff/Regulator saga continues, but I didn’t go into it at all this week. Also I forgot to mention that a coworker gave me an old (but never used) quilt she won in a silent auction for her son’s theater group years ago that had just been sitting in a bin. It looked ruined but I washed it in warm with a couple of color catchers and lo and behold it came out just fine. So I snipped a few threads, sewed a Project Linus label on it called it PL2019 #8, which means I’m still only ONE blanket behind for my donations this year, yay!
Here’s a photo of the quilt before and after washing:
In which you can see a bit more progress on the Halloween Quilt #2, and I talk about Project Linus, Ukuleles, and Other Things.
I originally planned to insert this into a video I would record today, but have decided in the interest of time (mostly MY time, lol) I would just use this footage from Friday, in which you’ll see the finished Red work/Bluework quilt for Project Linus, washed and ready to turn in, which I did this past Saturday. I’m right on track for my annual Project Linus goal of 12 for the year… 7th month – 7th quilt.
Thanks for watching and see you next week!
In which you see the beginnings of a special memorial quilt I’m working on while I blather on about basting with pool noodles and my dedication to imperfection. Cheers!
In this video I show my 3rd, count ’em, THIRD Project Linus quilt top I have completed since the June meeting. Go me! Made from 2 panels, one donated space book panel called “wonders of the night sky” and one Stonehenge solar system panel I purchased. See you in July!
Well I’m late, but I did manage to record a video this morning and am just now getting around to uploading it. And I’ll apologize in advance… it’s a long one! I am currently in a timeout because of bringing home too many donations from my Project Linus meeting this weekend. So pour yourself a glass of wine or whatever potion you prefer… put your feet up and listen to the rambles of Jewells.
