CCQ #7

I quilted up this country panel for Piecemakers Club charity quilt program.  It's bound and ready to pass along to the club at next Thursday's meeting.



I've already started quilting #8 and hope to also have that finished for next Thursday.  I need to move this stuff along because my sewing room is getting over crowded.

In the meantime, I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times where you'll find lots of wonderful projects being created.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Scraphappy Saturday - Orange

I don't have much variety of oranges and not alot of scraps, so I sat out most Saturday's this month. But before the month of September closes, I'm jumping in with this simple pinwheel-type block for the row quilt.





and I killed  ALOT  of time using up wee little scraps to make these greeting cards.



I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy where you'll find lots of wonderful projects being created with orange.

Scrappy Orphan Blocks QOV

This is what's on my design wall today.  Lots of scrappy orphan blocks made with patriotic fabrics.  We had a quilt guild  charity sew day last Thursday.  I went in with other plans (g) but I was directed to this batch of 20 scrappy orphan blocks.  I've been making sashing and cornerstones to bring it up to  adult size and assembling the top.  This is it's unfinished stage today.  Forgive the dull photo, it is a dreary and rainy day today, not the best conditions for taking pictures.




I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times where you will find lots more wonderful projects happening.
