Project Linus - Third Sunday Group - June

Sailboat Quilt - Debby

Our third Sunday Project Linus group sailed yesterday. We pieced quilt tops with sailboats on them. Debby made the quilt above from a kit from another Project Linus blanket group. Jodie wrote a pattern and cut kits for our group.

island theme print

Debby found a cute island themed fabric to back her sailboat.

Sailboat quilt top - SusanB

I had the honor of finishing the first sailboat top yesterday. Yes, my sails are blowing east instead of west. Most of the fabrics in the kits were the same, so I chose to be different.

Simple Strips quilt - Sandy

Sandy brought 2 finished quilts to turn in. She found a striped fabric to back her Simple Strips top from last month.

Sandy's other finished quilt was her de-wonked Wonky Quilt top. It's the one with the giant polka dots in the center squares in last month's 3rd Sunday report.

5 fleece blankets - Sandy

Sandy also turned in 5 finished fleece blankets.

Debby tied 2 of her quilts yesterday afternoon. First, her Wonky Block quilt with a wonderful backing fabric.

And Debby's Happy Block quilt. Look at the great flannel print she used on the back. It has all of the colors in the top.

Stuff Came Home with Me

blanket group supplies

Jodie's out of town next month and I volunteered to be substitute group leader. I brought home a bag of quilts ready to tie, a bag of quilt tops with backs and batting, quilt tying supplies in the turquoise tote and a red Toyota tote bag with next month's quilt kits.

more fleece

Blizzard fleece is on sale for $3 a yard this week at JoAnns. I couldn't resist and bought 6 blankets worth. I only had about 18 blankets worth left in my stash.

Wait a minute. I'm trying to clear things out to get the house ready to sell next spring. Whoops!
