I did find some time to make some blocks for Alison's Soy Amado project. If you have not heard about it, you can find out more info here. She is asking for quilt-as-you-go blocks to make quilts for a children's home in Mexico City. So these blocks will be making the journey from my house (40 minutes from the Mexico border) to Alison in the Channel Islands where they will be made into a quilt and then shipped to Netherlands where they will be sent back to Mexico. It will be quite the journey!
Originally I had intended to franken-piece together some orphan blocks, but I wanted to make something bright and fun so I used some Ann Kelle Beatbox prints with Kona Cotton. I love, love, love these prints.
Last night I finished a quilt top for one of my new friends here in San Diego. She is expecting her fifth boy (yes, you read that right) and they are BYU fans so I thought this would be a fun quilt for them. Apparently I am on a pixel-kick lately.
She is due very soon so I need to get this one finished up.
On the to do list:
- Curtains. It seems like I keep making curtains but there are always more to make.
- Farmer's Wife blocks. I only made 5 last month so I have 15 to make this month.
- More baby quilts. I need to make at least 2 more for friends who are expecting in the next couple months.
Linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
