In which I ramble about my version in progress of the current Project Linus “Side by Side” Quiltalong, supporting my favorite local quilt shop, and what I bought from them last week. Oh, and the colorful solids I bought are apparently from Paintbrush Studios not Moda (the black was Moda). The colors I showed you are Aruba, Lipstick, and Gingery.

Sorry about the crappy sound but I’m outside. I am just thrilled the neighbor quit using his power tools right as I started filming. And the the dog forgot I was there until the end. But finally, here’s those three quilts I was meant to turn in to Project Linus in March, before the meeting got cancelled. At least I got to go outside and enjoy the beautiful day today!
Meet the back of my pink house.
Not a lot happening crafty-wise here at the moment, but I did update a couple of quilt tops in my “waiting to quilt” collection by making them wide so that they meet Project Linus’ size requirements for toddler quilts. I also am looking forward to a new machine I ordered with a bunch of fun stitches to play with, and that will let me finish some applique quilts I have hanging around.
Hey y’all keep up the crafting and let’s keep supporting each other and our nonprofits during this crisis. Be safe, be well, and most importantly, be kind!
In which I come to you from a totally different perspective this week! Just decided to mix things up a bit. Quilted another Project Linus quilt this past weekend. Just need to finish binding these 3 quilts and label and wash so I can turn in this Saturday… which will put me at 3 donations for 2020, one ahead of schedule! Have a great week!
Y’all I am quilting again, yaaaaaaaay! Actually quilted two Project Linus quilts over the weekend, have the binding picked out, just need to sew the binding together and bind those suckers. Words cannot express how joyful I am at quilting again. I am seriously deliriously happy about this! Here’s to many more quilts to come!
I forgot to mention two things in my video: Jewells had enough of the bicycle fabric for me to finish the nine patches for the Disappearing Nine Patch and I did get the four quilts for Oz Comfort Quilts off in the mail last week! I want to give a special shout out to my friend Cynthia for helping with shipping for that! ♥
