It seems fitting that my first post to this blog would be of a quilt
that I just finished using one of Beth's tutorials at the Love Laugh
Quilt blog. Thanks Beth! Used her Half Log Cabin – Free Style
tutorial. This was so fun and quick. I didn't use the paper foundation
for my blocks but followed her method.
Went to the Project Linus meeting yesterday and delivered the
quilt. Forgot to take a final picture so these are pictures of the
flimsy. I had picked up the black & white polka dot at a past meeting,
4 yards, 18” wide, so perfect for this scrap busting project.
I also took two flimsies I sewed together from orphan blocks I
came home with at another meeting. The coordinator is planning a
"sandwich” day, not an eating party, but a workshop to sandwich
quilts from flimsies given to PL. Find a back, layer, sandwich, and
baste the quilts as needed. Some are sewn at the workshop, some
taken home. Some are taken to a retirement home where residents
tie quilts. Lots of work gets done by many hands.
Thanks again Beth for the tutorial. AND Thank you for creating the
new blog. I'm glad you have invited us to join in the fun and share
