The March Color Blocks quilt is complete. The design is called Monkey Wrench and I added the borders at the top & bottom using the bonus HST’s from making some of the blocks. I decided to follow the suggested quilting design and even though it’s just a smidge too dense for my liking I think it turned out great.
It was a tad windy the day I took these photos so it was pretty hard to get a good picture. This quilt is now sitting in the pile to be donated. Speaking of…
I’ve participated in the Hands2Help challenge hosted by Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict for several years. Visit her blog for all the details on how to participate… I think this year I will find a local charity to cut down on the shipping expenses.
In the past I’ve made quilts from the designs Sarah suggests but I just loved the idea of using up my scraps in the Color Blocks QAL so all these quilts will be sent off for Hands2Help. It’s not too late to join the QAL…it’s going on all year long 🙂
The pollen here has exploded over the last couple of weeks and it’s no fun spending time outdoors. Everything is covered in a layer of yellow/green dust… we need some rain really bad 😦 I’ve been wearing a mask when I walk to cut down on the amount of pollen I breath… ick. Later today I’ll be hosing down our back patio even though I know it’ll be covered again in another week; at least it will cut down how much we track inside.
Yesterday we drove back to our old neck of the woods to attend a memorial service for a dear friend. We did it as a day trip because we didn’t have anyone to keep our dog overnight. We left at 9am and got back around 6:30pm. Our neighbors came over to let Sammie out about every 3 hours and gave her treats. She was so happy to see us when we got home… poor thing was so confused!!
That’s about all for now… have a great rest of your weekend!!
Stay safe and…
