Lime Quilt Block and Breast Cancer Quilt Layout

Lime Quilt Block

I think I'm going to really like this Lime Quilt! Here's one block finished. The block finishes 12" square. The digital camera is having problems capturing the polka dots correctly. It make the block look crooked but it really turned out pretty straight. Now only 29 more to go plus borders. My goal is at least one block per day. It's a slow goal, but, I also have 4 breast cancer quilts to assemble that I volunteered to complete. Here's the lime block.

Breast Cancer Quilt Layout

Below is a trial layout of my first of four Breast Cancer Quilt for the Breast Cancer Warrior Quilts. As members attended the race, they brought or created a square on pink fabric provided or brought their own. Some on white, some on others. Here's a trial layout. There are more light pink blocks than darker and I am OK with the areas of repetitive light pink. These will be taking a lot of my time over the next couple of months. I'll keep you posted on the progress. The green you see in between the blocks is my carpet.

Congrats Pittsburgh Penquins NHL 2009 Stanley Cup Champions!!!

LimeQuilt Status, Quilting Books Giveaway

LimeQuilt Status

I am happy to say, I have washed and lightly ironed all fabrics! I should move into cutting the squares today in between yard work! Hard to see but the white on white fabric is on the left.


As I was looking around while cleaning today, it's time to get rid of some of my excess crafting items. So, what better way than to give them away!! These will be easy giveaways since there are not too many visitors to the site. Who knows, you could be the only one :-) So, if you are interested in some free books, please let me know by leaving a comment and tell me what your favorite quilting book is if you have one. If not, what's your favorite craft book.

35 Projects - Quilting Books Giveaway - Ends 6/15/09

I have sooo many crafty things that I would much rather give to other crafters instead of having them end up in the land fill. The giveaways will touch all different types of crafts. Some piddly, some good ones, we'll see.

The following quilting books are from my own library and will be given away on Monday evening EST, June 15th. I will pull a random number and match to comments. I will not approve any postings that I feel are inappropriate. The books will be shipped at my expense by media mail. Sorry, but only US Address entries at this time.

The two quilting books (remember, they are used but in great condition) from my supply are :
  • Quirky Quilting by Tomme J. Fent
  • 90 Minute Quilts by Meryl Ann Butler.
Thanks for stopping by!
