Yes I have been sewing away! Currently we have 23 quilts ready for the orphanage in Haiti! I have sewn 15, my Mom has done 3 and a neighbor donated 5 from her quilt guild! Here is a pic!
The ones on the right are 10" squares and are 5x6, meaning 5 squares by 6 squares. These are for the older kids. The ones on the left are 7" squares and are 6x6, these are for the babies and toddlers. I have one of these waiting to snip and another cut and ready to sew!
I am really bummed about this one though
See how the red ran on that one print! I wash in cold and even use Shout Color Catchers. After the first wash I sprayed with Shout and washed again, still not change, so I sprayed and let sit over night, nothing! I have used the red before with no problem. And it is funny how it only ran on that on print, not the other red print. DH says I should send it, but I just can't!
DD has been helping me snip and has made a few quilts of her own for an organization that I have worked with for a few years. Threads of Love, one of the things they do is make blankets for preemies, so I have been doing that with my scraps. Here is one of hers.
They are a little smaller, 6" squares and 6x6, I have some that I made that are 5x5. She is doing it for community service, but I know she loves to do them anyway! We made a bunch after hurricane Katrina and sent them to New Orleans. They are so easy and such fun to make. You can go with a theme, or just run with it.
Still have about 25 or so to go. Rainy days are perfect for sewing
Have a good one,
