I headed off the Joann's on Wednesday after quilting, to pick up some fabric for my friend to make sun hats for her grandchildren and great-neices and nephews.  While I was there I picked up 4 different 3 yard pieces of cream on cream and white on white.  I realized that I had used my entire stash of simple background fabrics, so needed to replenish my supply.  Now I have to look forward to pressing all the yardage after it is washed!

I finished quilting and binding three more projects this week.  I added borders to this farm panel.
 These blocks were made a couple of years ago.  My quilt group donated leftover 2 1/2 inch strips and we used Bonnie Hunter's Boxy Stars pattern to make the blocks.  A bag of pre-cut solid strips was donated as well, and I used them for sashing and cornerstones.

 I made scrappy binding, pulling leftover binding strips from my 2 1/2 inch strip box, to continue the colourful projects.  These will be donated to the Community Quilts program at my guild, when I return north in the spring.

Now I have to decide which project to work on next.  I brought an applique project along, so I guess I should begin preparing the pieces for evening hand sewing work.

Head over to Judy's blog to see how others are doing this week.


  1. Cute quilts! I especially like your farm panel.

  2. You are one busy lady. Your scrappy star quilt really sparkles.

  3. Lovely quilts! I need some more neutrals, too - they do get used quickly, don't they?


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
