A Months Worth

Can't believe a full month has passed since my last post.  I think playing on IG gets me a bit sidetracked.

Back in June, Amanda Jean  of Crazymomquilts had a QAL based on a quilt in her new book No Scrap Left Behind.  I participated and finished up in July.

It was a fun quilt to do and made absolutely no dent in my scraps.

In fact trimming up my strip sets resulted in this nice neat pile of left overs.

which promptly turned into this.  The mental problem I'm having here is that I took a small pile of scraps and used them up by pairing them up with 2 + yards of fabric.  Hmmmmm 

But I really, really like how it turned out.

My travel project for sitting in doctors office waiting rooms and for watching TV are these crocheted pin cushions / tool / gadget holders   This multi colored  group above is for a fund raiser for Angel Snugs.

This group of pinks and white will be going to a local breast cancer group's fund raiser. They've asked for about 20, I think I'm about half way there.

Debbie over at A Quilters Table had an Improv QAL on IG.  #improvstripesqal

It was way, way out of my comfort zone but I am so glad that I participated.  Sometimes you just have to give the uncomfortable a try.  Very happy with the results. My sister has already called dibs on it.

Last but far from least are these quilts for the Preemies at the Florida Hospital for Children

These are the sample quilts that the Big Cypress chapter of the Villages Quilt Guild will be making as one of our ongoing Charity projects. 

the pictures are of the front and back of the 3 quilts.  they are 11 x 11, 13 x 17 and 17 x 17

They were looking for holiday or seasonal themed quilts for these very little babies. Every child needs to celebrate their first holidays no matter how tiny they are.

I've also been participating in the #pinnieparade on IG where we have been making a pin cushion a day for the month of August there are now over 3,500 posted.  I'll post all of mine once the parade is over.
