Monday Making

Here's a very soft and pretty charity quilt
I put together yesterday.

It all began with a quilty question
and a picture of a quilt sent via email.

I was asked....
Did I know the pattern...
and what were the dimensions.
?????

Hmmm.....
THAT got me going!!!

Hah hah!!
A little sewing MATH to keep the Ol' brain cells moving!

I used two 5" squares
and a 3 1/2"x 9 1/2" rectangle for each block.
(You can get FOUR rectangles out of a
3 1/2" strip cut Width of fabric)

I have a nice STASH of 5" squares I was able to use
and after putting this quilt top together
I realized
the PINKS are definitely USED up!!!

I didn't know that could happen!!!
LOL!

Well...
I'm not sure MY version is the same as the photo sent to me...
but it WORKED!
A simple charity quilt
that used UP some STASH
AND
gave my mind some exercise!!


My son was busy weaving as I sewed
and since I admired this one
(It's lovely right??)
It was GIVEN to me!!!

I LOVE these bright colors.
Such a contrast to the project I was working on!!!

So friends...
What are YOU working on???

  2. I love your son's woven potholder. I have a couple of these myself, and they are my go to favorites.

  3. I've been going through stash; cutting it into 5" blocks and varying sizes of strips. I have plenty of 5" blocks to make this quick and easy child's quilt. I love fast and easy quilts. Blessings, Gretchen

  4. Very soft and pretty. It's a great stash buster and requires no seam matching, even better!

  7. I remember making those hand woven potholders when I was young and then my children made some. They were fun! I admire someone who can put a quilt together in a day. It always seems to take me twice as long as anyone else. Karen
