Off They Go!

Today is a vacation day for me, so I'm using some of the time to get some of my charity projects in the mail.  I mailed this quilt to Quilter's Newsletter to send to earthquake victims in Japan.
This quilt was made from a pattern in a Quiltmaker magazine.  I liked it because of the large pieces of fabrics that weren't cut up, and I had this cute dragon princess fabric to use.
Isn't this great fabric?  I've had it in my stash for years waiting for the perfect pattern.  Hopefully a little girl in Japan will love it.

The Just One Star blocks were finished last week and sent to guild to be mailed off to Moda.

And last but not least, the fabric for the Hands2Help quilt was sent off to my swap partner.  I had some neat dinosaur fabric for that one.

Can you tell I'm a sucker for kid's prints?  I have never met one I didn't like!  I made an I Spy quilt for my son many years ago, and just never stopped collecting fabrics for another one.  One of these days, I need to make about ten I Spy quilts.

Have you heard about the Hands2Help project?  The button on my sidebar will link you to the project.  I think it sounds like a great idea, and I had fun picking out fabric to swap with my partner.

We're in the middle of getting 6" of snow today.  (Sigh)  I thought spring was here, but I guess I have to wait for a few more days.  The daffodils always get snowed on at least once.  At least it's a nice day to stay inside and sew!


  1. Your quilt is adorable and was made for such a great cause. Love the stars you made for the Just One Star project. Stay warm and enjoy sewing.

  2. Love your quilt for Japan! The fabrics are great!!

  3. Good for you, doesn't it feel great to share your skill with others? Your projects are marvelous.
