I made these sample blocks for a block lotto we will be having at the Royal City Quilt Guild. I think our members will have a lot of fun making these great little bird blocks. If you'd like to make some you can find the tutorial here.
Wendy and I got together to cut 4 quilt kits for the RCQG community outreach program bringing our total to 8.
I think this is the first year to try handing out kits for complete quilt tops. We usually hand out block kits and we are continuing to do that.
I've also been working like a beaver on my Cloud9, Cirrus Solids block which I have completed. All I have left is to proof read my blog post and tutorial and tighten it up a bit. Yay!
And I've been sewing along with Yvonne of Quilting JetGirl for the Snowflake Shimmer quilt along, and falling behind on the Meadow Mystery that Cheryl of Meadowmist Designs is running. I have yet to cut my fabric for that one...and truth be told I'm now trailing a bit with Snowflake Shimmer. I have lots of time to catch up with both of these though, so I'm not worried. Do you think I should throw Lorna's MOD Bear paw quilt along into the mix?
In that vein, I have to report once again that I did not meet my August Goal which was quilting my Rainbow Rose Quilt. I did make some progress towards the goal. I made the quilt back and pin basted the quilt and I bought a quilting guide that will go to the left of the walking foot, just in case I need it.
Ever the optimist I am rolling the goal into September and joining all the other folks who are linking up with Heide of Red Letter Quilts for the OMG linkup.
