Zombie

I sure picked the right project for my recovery...I've been like a zombie working on this zombie blanket for two weeks!  Yes, it took me two weeks to finish a blanket that would normally take me about two hours.  I never thought that something as simple as a little throat surgery would take so much out of me, but thankfully the worst is over and I'm feeling much more like myself these days!

Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild 2014 Exhibit - Colors of Cancer


As a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society, guild members were asked to design a small art quilt using colored fabric representing specific cancer awareness colors (such as pink for breast cancer) There were 16 quilts entered in this project, all of which were sold at $25 each, raising $400 for our local ACS!

Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild 2014 Exhibit, Challenge Category


The challenge for the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild's exhibit this year was to make a quilt showing one, any combination, or all of the elements...Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water.  I think those who entered did a great job representing the theme!

$5 Price Tag

I'm not sure just how much flannel is in this scrap bundle that I found at Sew Green in Ithaca, NY, but I can tell by the feel of it that I should be able to cut enough 6" squares out of it to make a kid sized Disappearing 9 Patch quilt.  Even if I have to add some fabric to it, I can't beat the $5 price tag for the start of a great charity quilt!
