Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along

I have found this quilt along at Moose on the Porch Quilts blog. It sounds like A LOT of fun so lets see how it goes! Now I need to get a jelly roll!

Charity Quilt

I have finished the quilt I was making for a former co-worker. The quilt is to be put up for raffle or silent auction at her and her family's benefit golf tournament. All the proceeds will be donated to the Children's Hospital of Boston.

Here is a picture of the quilt.

And this is the quilt with the coordinating tote bag I made to go with it.

I am so excited to know that my blocks are in the mail to me!! Thanks again Kathleen for hosting this amazing swap!! I am looking forward to assembling all the blocks!

Charity Auction Quilt Progress

I have been a busy bee the past couple of days!! I have cut and sewn 36 blocks together for the Charity Auction quilt! It will be donated to a former co-worker to be auctioned off to benefit Children's Hospital of Boston. I am thrilled she asked me to make a quilt for this great cause! I am hoping to have the quilt top finished tomorrow or Saturday. I decided not to do a dissappearing 9 patch and instead used a pattern that I had never used before. I will post pictures when the quilt top is finished.

On a non-quilty note, our family has decided to be a host family for a pair of the Young American performers that will be holding a music outreach program at my daughters school next week. She is very excited we said yes!!

Thanks for stopping by!! :o)

I am getting so excited about receiving my no sew swap blocks!! Only 2 more need to be received for our group!!! :o)

I am in the midst of planning a quilt I am making for a charity auction to benefit Children's Hospital in Boston. I am thinking of doing a dissappearing nine patch block with these fabrics. What do you think??

I did a couple of practice blocks today and then I made this little tote out of them!! How cute!!

Well thats what I have been up to lately! Thanks for visiting! :o)
