The thing about this much rain is that it's a good excuse to stay inside and sew. That is both a good thing and a not so good one. There is a tremendous amount to be done outside, but it's too wet to do any of it. So, I've been doing a lot of sewing. I just don't have a finish to show yet.
Last night I quilted and trimmed this one I made from Deb's churn dash blocks. The red and blue sashing and cornerstones I added made these not-at-all patriotic blocks look a lot more so! This one needs binding. It will go to the USO at the airport when they are all done.
This one is ready to quilt. I have the backing sewn and the batting cut to size. Just have to get myself in there and do it. It will also go to the USO.
This will be another of the Bonnie Hunter Dancing Nine Patches. (You can find the directions in the "Free Patterns" tab at the top of her page.) I made mine with 2 1/2 inch pieces instead of the 2 inch ones she used. This one will also go to the USO when they are all finished.
I finished piecing this one a while back and my friend Sandy's sister Peggy quilted it for me. All it needs is binding. This one will go to Quilts of Compassion. They are doing a "deployment" in July to Texas and maybe Oklahoma. I'd like to get some more made to go there. As I said earlier, so many people have suffered so in this latest round of devastating weather. It may seem foolish to send quilts to people in July in the heat, but Janice Grimes and her crew minister to these people and pray for them when they give the quilts. They seek out those in each community who are familiar with those who have been impacted. It's a "God Thing" they are doing and I like to help.
Yes, I started another one. This tumbler quilt is sewn together now and trimmed. I have to choose borders and continue the process. It will also go to Quilts of Compassion.
I hope you are having a good week and finding lots of ways to have fun, and just maybe help someone who needs it!
Hugs and kisses,
