I am sewing up a quilt for a friend of mine,Gladys. We met when I first joined my quilt guild. I cannot say enough about her. We clicked even though we are as different as night and day. Fast forward a few years and go back to last April's guild retreat. Gladys and I went shopping before we arrived at the retreat. She bought a twin size quilt kit plus extra fabric to make it into a King size quilt. After the holidays she asked me if I would sew it for her. I gladly accepted. A gift of myself for a friend who needs help.
The quilt center is now 60" X 80". I will begin to make the log cabin blocks that we agreed on to make the quilt much bigger. I hope Gladys checks out my blog to see the progress I have made. It was like putting a puzzle together when you use panels. Thank goodness, so far, all the measurements have played well together.
Someone asked how my back of the block looked with the seams all pressed open. Here it is. I learned a long time ago that Bonnie's quilts have many seams and pressing open makes them easier to quilt. IMOO

She turns into a whole other kitty when she is not weighed down with all that fur!
A quilt for Project Linus.
Another quilt for Project Linus.
This Saturday our guild is having a sew-in. We have cut and kitted up 30 some quilts to donate to the local Project Linus. It was really fun ironing and cutting up MASSIVE amounts of fabrics. And when Sara and I kitted them up we were actually short on strips! We made enough kits to hold us for the sew-in day.
The above is a picture of the organized chaos of swapping out the Postage Stamp Swap.
