Well, summer got the better of me. I didn't sew much at all, and what I did sew was very slow going. We've been back in school now for a couple weeks and I have time again! I'm having a hard time staying focused on one project...a little of this and a little of that.
First up, Shimmer. (Pattern found here.) I love picking fabrics to put together in these blocks, and they go together quickly.
I couldn't resist April Rhodes new fabric line, Observer, and thought it worked really well with this HUGE block, it's 36 inches. Pattern is from the Moda Building Blocks quilt booklet. I don't want to make the entire quilt, but I need to figure out how to make it bigger. I'm a little stumped on this one, so I put it away for a bit. Maybe some inspiration will strike.
And lastly I've been trying to use up scraps. The never ending love/hate relationship I have with scraps. There are just so many of them, and they never run out. I can't decide if I should arrange this pattern horizontally or vertically.
Actually, lastly, I'm wondering if anyone has a favorite charity they donate quilts to. I would love to a place that takes quilt tops too. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
