I made two Charity Quilt Blocks for the Temecula Valley Modern Quilt Guild.

For our charity quilt, the Temecula Valley Modern Quilt Guild is making log cabin blocks using strips of Denise Schmidt"s fabric line "Eastham". This is my first block.

My 2nd Log Cabin block for the charity quilt. The center block isn't square and I made it on the diagonal. Can we call it Improv?

Here are both blocks laid out on my design grass.  Both blocks are 12 1/2 inches square.  Now, I'm going to do a fabric pull for a new project!

May your bobbins always be full,

Charity Quilt Block for the Temecula Valley Modern Quilt Guild.


It's been over three weeks since I've sewn.  I have a busy life and sewing/quilting took a back seat for awhile.  I feel as if I'm back on track, and ready to stitch.

My new project is to make some blocks for the Temecula Valley Modern Quilt Guild's first Charity Quilt.  A FQ bundle of Denise Schmidt's new line Eastham was donated for this quilt and cut into 2.5-inch strips.  Members were free to take some strips and create either a 12.5-inch or 6.5-inch Log Cabin block.  Our finished quilt will be donated to GenerateHope, a charity that empowers trafficked young women to discover a future of freedom.

I'm going to use this traditional looking fabric to make a couple of modern looking Log Cabin Blocks.  That's my plan, at least.

BTW, my last post asked my readers to vote for my Rocket Ship Quilt.  I was in Chicago when I found out the quilt I made for the Northcott Fabric Chip Pack Challenge had been chosen one of the 10 finalists eligible for the voting.  I was thrilled.  This was my first time entering a challenge and to be selected was very heady.  I finished in second place after the voting was finished.  I'm still thrilled to have finished in the top three!
