I trimmed all my blocks for the first wonky log cabin and started piecing them. Can't wait to see what it looks like put together.
Please post a pic when you have it together! I'm curious how the quilt tops will look, based on the instructions I've seen. I realize each one will be different, but just to see the overall effect.
I've got 15 blocks of my third set of 20 done, but I'm still waiting for an email of who my next Team Leader is, who will receive these. I'm thinking Michele may be busy with the holiday. I just keep sewing...my stack of scraps is actually starting to show signs of a dent being made in them!
I know they have more blocks being made than team leaders to make the quilts so she may be waiting for more to step up.
Here is my first top. Some were bordered in brown and four had a b & w print. I put the print ones in the corners and did the best I could at alternating the others. It is a fun quilt!
Jeanine you did a great job on the top. Someone will be lucky to have it this winter.
Max you make me feel like a slacker 60 blocks done , wow.
Jeanine, I think it looks great! The instructions just said to use a "dark border (black, navy, etc)", so mine were black with white print because that's what I had at the house... But I can see how it would have been a lot simpler for you if we'd all just used solid black. Sorry about that! I like the overall effect though - you did a great job with it!
It is fun to see what others come up with. That's part of doing a group quilt. I didn't worry too much about matching but with the for different than the rest, it looked good in the corners. If I did one for myself, I would use all solid black. But when you are asking for donations from people using their stash, it's fine to not match.
thanks to everyone who is giving their time to this effort!
I'm in the process of putting my first one together as well .finally have recieved enough blocks .I have received some really pretty blocks . and they are making a nie birght quilt. I will get a picture posted later today. Max yours are all going in this first quilt but two and I'll have to put them in the next one. but I'll give you the credit for them on th label I make . barbara
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Hi, I got my first top put together,still need to do some borders ,not sure yet what I'm going to do with those. I thnk its really pretty myself. came out to be a good size queen ..Barbara
Looks great, Barbara!! I love the heart and star blocks mixed in. <3
Jeanine and Barbara, you are doing a great job on the storm quilts. You guys are champs!
Jeanine and Barbara,
Your quilts are wonderful!! Thank you both for posting the pictures. It helps to have an idea how the tops will go together. I'm bordering mine in a indigo (dark) blue and a navy blue just because I have a good bit of both on hand.
Even though the blocker makers are using different border colors and a wide range of fabrics you are both doing a marvelous job putting them together! You must be having fun playing with scrappy puzzles!
I'm lucky that I don't have a lot of distractions...like a job, kids, or a demanding hubby. I get to sew about as much as I want to, or as much as my hands and back will let me. And I had a bunch of my old scraps already cut in strips. This first 60 blocks has gone pretty quickly.
But I studied the calendar this afternoon and I'll have to spend a little time getting one more lap quilt together before the end of the year for my Alzheimer's Research group. That commitment will slow me up a bit on these blocks. But once it is done I can get back to this project until I run out of scraps.
Barbara, you're doing great on placement of the blocks. I was kind of worried that mine were to scrappy until I saw yours and Jeanine's blocks that you received. Not worried at all now. LOL Do you Jeanine do the quilting too?
Thanks Bonita ,yes we will finsh the quilts up and send them off. I have gotten some really pretty blocksform all over the country.
Well all I can say is all you leaders are special Sandy Angels, what with the cost of batting and backing for all the quilts. How many are you doing?
