Just a bit windy for picture taking.
I have committed to doing 2 quilts for the Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt project this year. Today is the day we post our progress. Both quilts need to be in the mail by June 2 so this posting helps to keep us on track and not running around like chickens that last week.

I finished the first top last night. 2 weeks ago I made the lawn chair quilt with the pattern from Moda Bake Shop for a friends birthday. Here is the tutorial http://www.modabakeshop.com/2010/09/lawn-chair-quilts.html
It was such a fun and easy quilt to put together, no matching of points anywhere. As it was written it was a little big for this project so I just made the strips one panel shorter and the width 2 sections narrower. I then added a border to get the finished size I wanted. This one comes in at around 50 x 65.
The pattern called for using Jelly Rolls which gives you a great assortment of fabrics and no cutting. I did that with the first one. For this one I decided to try using one focus fabric. I loved the assortment of butterflies. The pattern was just small enough to work well with 2 1/2 inch strips.
Next up are pictures of the items I included with my giveaways from last month. My giveaway was the slipper pattern I based my slippers from the Stitch me up blog hop on. I felt that the envelope I was using needed an additional item. I had 3 giveaways, I made 2 spring themed zip bags
and 1 kitchen potholder set.
Here is the tutorial I used for the mitt. http://shecanquilt.blogspot.com/2013/04/adriannes-oven-mitt-2013-fal-tutorial.html
Until next time.
