Scrappy Stripes

I came home from vacation and found a box of scraps in my mail.  How fun!

I immediately knew that I wanted to make some blocks for this month's Covered In Love block drive. 

This month's block is a scrappy stripe block created by Cynthia who has asked for blocks in warm colors of orange, red, yellow, or purple.  

I dont think that I have ever made a yellow quilt before, but seeing all these bright blocks on my design wall make me think I need a yellow quilt.

Finish It Friday - Double Star Quilts

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

Oh, yes I did finish this pair of double star quilts this week for the H2H Challenge!

Why 2 Star quilts?  Well.......I had one complete quilt cut out, but then somehow misplaced a stack of the pieces.  So, I went ahead and cut new pieces to make the 1st quilt top.  Then, I found the original stack of pieces and thought that I should just add some new pieces and finish a second quilt.

Two more finished quilts for this year's Hands 2 Help Challenge.  I have to finish the binding on one more quilt and then I will be done with the challenge.  Thank you to everyone who gave me scraps for Christmas.  Don't worry, I still have plenty more scraps to get me through 2017 (I think).

Sew Some Love - H2H

It is getting close to the end of this year's Hands 2 Help Challenge, and my projects are starting to get finished.  

This weekend I finished another Lolly quilt.  It is a wild, scrappy mixture of patterns, but it seems to work together great.

Next up, I am hoping to finish the binding on a few more quilts and then I will move on to working on this month's Covered In Love blocks.

Friday Finish - Charming Plus Quilts

This week I was able to finish 2 quilts!  Yes, 2 quilts are complete and mailed off as part of this year's Hands 2 Help Challenge.

Both of these quilts were created during the Charming Plus Quilt Along.

The blocks sizes are slightly different between the quilts and was determined by the size of the scraps that I had.  The bright quilt on the left was made entirely from scraps that I received from several people last Christmas.  I couldn't believe that all of theses scraps supported the same color scheme.

Hopefully, I will have a few more quilts completed for this challenge.

Friday Finish - Fancy Blue Foxes

I have started finishing my quilts for this year's Hands 2 Help Challenge.  An abundance of scraps that I received this past Christmas has led to multiple quilts for this year's challenge.

This week's finish is Fancy Foxes in blue.

This is the second time that I have used this pattern and have found that it works great for using all types of fabrics in my stash, both traditional and modern.  I made the first fox quilt using my orange scraps.

There is still time to join in this year's challenge.  Next week I hope to finish another scrappy, happy houses quilt.

Friday Finish - Quilts For Cure

Yay! I have a finish this week.  This beautiful and bright happy, scrappy houses quilt is off to Quilts For Cure.

This quilt is made entirely from donated scraps that I asked for Christmas.  It is so bright and cheerful and is off to hopefully spread some quilty joy to a child fighting against cancer.

Hands 2 Help Challenge 2017

One of my favorite times of the quilt year is the Hands to Help Challenge (H2H) and this will be my fifth year participating.  There are 3 charities this year and I hope to have quilts for each of them.

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

For Christmas I asked for scraps, and wow did I get a lot of scraps!  Plenty of beautiful fabric, just perfect for H2H quilts.

This week, I finished the quilting on the first of two happy, scrappy houses quilts.  I just need to finish the binding and hopefully I will have a finish this week.

Also while making my challenge quilts, I somehow decided that I had to immediately take control of the overload of scrappy strings.  Soon there will be a huge stack of string blocks on the way to Covered in Love.  These are surprisingly fast to make.
