Design Wall Mon. Feb. 27 / 17

Another Monday has come (and is almost gone), and I've got progress to report!  Is it on the two items that I need to finish for February?  No, of course not...!  Why would I want to deprive myself of the angst that comes from procrastinating?  Haha...
As I mentioned in my last post, I've stumbled across a really fun new project (Raspberry Kiss blocks), and I can't stop making blocks for it.  Thankfully, I found directions for making 9" (unfinished) blocks, instead of the 5" (unfinished) blocks that most are making.  I probably would have made the blocks anyway (I've made quite a few tiny quilts - those are large in comparison!), but these blocks will get me to my finish so much sooner.  I picked up a few new low-volume FQs at my LQS last week, and I'm putting them to good use - as you can see:
This is not a final layout - I have a lot more blocks in varying stages of completion, but this shows my progress quite nicely.
Also on the Design Wall today are 2 more blocks for the Big Quilt Bee - these blocks will go to my guild meeting in 2 weeks, along with the other 4 that I've already made.  We're planning a sewing day to assemble as many tops as we can; they'll then be quilted and sent off to benefit a child / family that needs the services of Ronald McDonald houses across the country.  I managed to get the "150 years" portion of the fabric in one of the blocks.  I'm debating going for another FQ with a different colour scheme - I've finally used up all of my aqua scraps.


Linking up with Judy (Design Wall Monday), Cynthia (Oh Scrap!), Sandy (Let's S.E.W. link-up) and Kat (Sew Some Love).

  9. I love your blocks and was able to track down a tutorial! Thank you so much for showing them - they are so pretty! I know your Ronald McDonald blocks will be much appreciated....my grandson was in ICU and there just isn't time to pack those "comfort" items when it's an emergency. Such a great work you're doing! Visiting you from Oh Scrap at Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework!
