Hello! We had a very relaxed session last night. Not a single sewing machine was plugged in but we enjoyed sharing stories, quilt ideas, fabric, and patterns. I was also able to unload lots of quilt tops that were donated last month to be quilted and I was happy to show off the new kit I made to make RMH bento box quilts. This is a really fast top to put together, using 4 fat quarters and a bit of border fabric:
I made 2 other versions and turned them in last month until I finally had all my pieces just right. Directional prints can be a bit tricky sometimes!
We had 20 quilts turned in last night to add to our count for the year. Here are the sweet and simple block patterns:
We also had some other fun patterns turned in:
Mom finished her disappearing 4 patch quilt that she showed us all to make last month. Such an easy way to make a difficult looking quilt. Too bad you can’t see this quilting!
I finally started making some quilts from the Fat Quarter Baby book I bought a few month’s ago. This pattern is a great way to get rid of those 2.5″ scraps!
I also showed the ladies a cute little purse pattern that someone in another group turned in to the House. They liked it so much, the House requested we make a bunch for Christmas. It only uses 2 fat quarters and takes no time at all to make. Here’s the pattern: Lazy Girl Designs: Runaround Bag.
We are at an even 50% at the end of month 5 for this year 3 now with 125 quilts collected. Don’t forget you can also turn in pillowcases, stockings and ouch buddies for the House as well! See you next month!
