I recently gave away two more quilts, one to my friend's husband who has cancer, and one to her as well, as she needed a quilt as much as he did. They've been going through a clinical trial, and have to travel across country every two weeks for the treatment. Its been a really rough time for the two of them.
Which left me with only one give-away quilt on my stack, and I really like to have a few of these quilts on hand, because you never know when someone is going to need one.
I (shamelessly) stole the idea for the above quilt from a Quilt of Valor posted on Alycia's blog. I really like the soft colors, and the birds-in-the-air pattern, which is perfect for 2 1/2" strips. All that's left to do is the binding.
I also finished up this little Americana mini I started out of leftover blocks and scraps. I think it looks a little chopped off, but I still like it OK.
Meanwhile, I've been itching to make something from Sheryl Johnson's book Quirky Little Quilts.
First up: the quilt on the cover! Out came the scraps again to make some blocks.
Sigh ... :-)
