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!
May your bobbins always be full,
