I haven't participated in Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015 for awhile. The rainbow color for July is Red. Mina at Kinda Quilty has inspired me to make more house blocks. Last year I made some houses but I wasn't sure how I would finish them into a quilt. Thanks to seeing Mina's house quilt I am determined to make a house quilt.
I now have 24 house blocks and need at least that many more. Cutting more house blocks will be on my to do list.
I did have fun making this crayon holder. The pattern is simple. Thanks Sharon for the inspiration to make them. I will make more for gifts.
I didn't do much sewing in March because I spent a couple of weeks with this little sweetheart.
Rileigh lives way too far away from grandma. So all my time there I was enjoying and spoiling her.
But there was hand work being done in the car riding to her house and home. I finally finished my charming star quilt and gave it to my friend for her birthday.
I sewed on lots of Beads of Courage bags. When I returned home I gave 20 bags to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. I probably still have another 50 to finish. I alway take these with me so I have something to work on when I have an extra moment.
And this little one was so glad we returned home so she could be rescued from being boarded.
Nina got a new dog bed yesterday because she chewed up the old one. The joys of having a puppy.
I have been sewing since I came home. I made chemo hats. I am still looking for an easy pattern to make hats using light weight fabric to make them. If you have one please share the information with me.
I made a baby quilt, blocks for a QOV quilt and I am sewing blocks for a retirement quilt but no rainbow blocks. I hope to have these finish soon so I can share them with you.
The Hands2Help charity challenge started while I was away. It is a fun challenge for a very worthwhile charities. Please take a look at Confessions of a Fabric Addict to read about it. It is not to late to join. Today there is a great tutorial over at Sarah's.
I have found time between being sick and work to make a few pink blocks. Since February is almost over these my be the only pink blocks I make. But you can be inspired by many other pinks at Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015.
I finished this prayer quilt. It has been delivered and the gentleman loved it. May it brings prayers of comfort to him.
I have been sewing on Beads of Courage bags. I think I have 60 of them almost finished.
These bags are for children going through cancer treatments and other serious illnesses. I hope you take time to read about this amazing program.
