My weekend was eclectic.
Scratch that my LIFE is eclectic!
I did a lot of things this weekend that were not connected except that they were done by me.
I did some gardening and boy was it HOT.
I did some cleaning and laundry, not very exciting. I also did some shopping, cutting and sewing.
I decided that I need a new shower curtain.
I also decided it was time to cut into my precious FQ bundle of Bliss to make said shower curtain.
I am using the pattern Happy Hour by Terry Atkinson
I saw this made up as a shower curtain on Terry's blog a LONG time ago and loved it!
So that's what I am going to do... eventually.
Hey at least it is cut out!
I have a few other things to get done and they have a deadline.
I figure I have 6 quilts to make in about 2-3 weeks!!!
Two for Yolanda, 3 for MHC, one that I can't talk about, (yet) and *then* the shower curtain.
I have to say that my friends are so good to me.
Pauline sent away for a free pattern for me.
Cori and I were talking about my making some quilts for MHC and their drive for kids quilts.
You can read about what they are looking for here.
I like to donate to this group as they are in Michigan and I know the people running the charity. They are in particular need of quilts for boys and young men.
Desired size is 40"X 60", so not that large.
Anyway, Cori and I were talking about this and she sent me off with a JR to use for one (or maybe 2) quilts for some of the younger boys.
Thanks Cori (now go and check out her wonderful shop!!)
I think I am going to try this pattern by Amanda Jean.
I think I can adapt it for a jelly roll.
What do you think of using white for the other part of the pattern?
I'm trying to use from my stash and I have loads of white.
Interestingly enough Amanda Jean just blogged about sending blocks off to MHC for an upcoming sew-in on August 25th.
You can read about that here.
The link to the pattern for the blocks can be found here.
Whew that's a lot of information!
It would be great if you could join in!
I wracked my brain to see what I could come up with for older guys and thought,
"you can never go wrong with sports teams".
So I am working on Michigan and Michigan State tumbler quilts.
I have the U of M one done and ready to send to Liz.
I have 6 of the 11 rows done on Sparty's quilt.
These tumbler tops went together in just over 3 hours and used 1 1/2 yards of 3 fabic.
If you have a GO and want to help, you can whip one of these babies up in no time!!
Well maybe in 3 hours anyway.
I'm going to stop right here.
I have more to share, but will save it for tomorrow.
I know I don't like posts that go on and on and on, LOL.
Have a wonderful day!!
