Time to give back…

 

Each year I set a goal for myself  at the beginning of the quilting season.  This year I aim to make 15 charity quilts over the winter.  So this weekend I was on a roll sewing wise.

I was working on one of my PHD’s(project half done) that I had added to the challenge in one of the face book groups that I joined.  We have 6 months to complete our UFO’s(unfinished object) or PHD’s.  Unfortunately  I ran out of thread so finish quilting the “28 Karats” quilt that I was adding 10 inches all around to take it from a double to a queen size as  per request of the freind that bought it.  My LQS (local quilt shop) is not open on weekends so I guess this project has to wait till I get thread.

 

I sure was not ready to quilt so I dug into boxes of cut squares pulled out any fall colors and off white-tan squres  this Charaity quilt.  This is a pretty easy quilt it has a  7″ blocks.  I used a 4 patch block made with 4″ squares  and alternated a solid 7″ block.  Added a border and voila 1st charity quilt of the year finished.  So I started this one on Saturday afternoon and had it all pieced, quilted and bound by Sunday noon.

Still not in the mood to stop I pulled out a Christmas panel and made a horizontal runner with it.  It’s actualy almost big enough to be a bed runner.

 

I beleive this was a very productive weekend.  Now to catch up the house since I dint do any housework being cooped up in my sewing dungion.
