What I'm Working on Wednesday
Yes, I do have a thing for blue and white quilts. This month the activity committee of our guild distributed 6 1/2 inch squares to those who were willing to work on putting them together with some of their own material. Nine of these will make a baby quilt with some sashing and binding. I don't remember how many they said they would need for a twin size, but judging from the pile of squares that people carried home from the last meeting, we should have enough units for several.
These are for charity quilts for a local home for unwed mothers. Yes, I know. In this day and age there is still such a thing. We've been making quilts for them for the past year or so.
We have a regular group who gets together one Saturday a month and assembles the squares into quilts. And we have a longarmer in our guild who quilts them for us.
In the handsewing department, I have finally finished all of the flying geese units and I'm now sewing them into units to complete the setting squares for the Prairie Paisley quilt. I would really like to be able to show some measurable progress on this before spring break is over.
