But I'm still squeezing in some sewing since I can only do so much scoring. My friend's son wanted to make a quilt for his teacher who is about to have her first baby.
Becca's Bird and Bunting Quilt. As soon as I saw the background fabric, though, I knew it was perfect for some of the Children at Play by Sarah Jane I had left from Anson's quilt. My friend and her son agreed and we decided that a paper airplane instead of a bird would be the perfect choice considering the theme in the fabric. (It's hard to tell from the picture, but three of the prints have paper airplanes in them.)
We've got the top finished and I'll show her how to quilt it the beginning of next week.
While my friend was sewing her quilt, I cut into the Dr. Seuss fabric I ordered from Sisters and Quilters.
This Way and That quilt pattern was so easy when I tried it with my last quilt (that I'll show you soon), that I decided to use it again. I still need to put a border on it, but otherwise the top is done. This one is destined for a Histio Heros fundraiser our neighbors are organizing.
And I was blown away at the amazing box of fabric Patty from Granma's Treasures sent me this week to use in I-Spy and other charity quilts. This picture really does not do the fabric justice. Granma's Treasures is currently getting a complete update and will be reopening under a new name in about a month, so I'll get to introduce her as a new sponsor then. Until then it's driving me a little nuts to have to spend so much time scoring essays instead of playing with this new fabric...but the essays help me justify the time for playing with fabric later. I've already got some fun plans for that yard of yellow banana fabric...I've been pulling all the monkey themed squares out of my I-spy stash...
Please show my sponsors some love...
