Dump Quilt Two
I hope you are getting some sewing time in with the Celebrate 30 Yrs. of National Sewing Month. This was the beginning of my second dump quilt. I hate to say, but I have 4 of these (different pretty colors). One gets put on the side of the table while my SIL and I sew, and any scraps get 'dumped' in them. Certainly time to play with this one.
Remember I have my helpers. They do a great job of holding down those scraps - as well as dumping them on the floor! Wait til you see this character on Feline Friday.
There were some pretty heart print squares - where did they come from? So I started with them as my base and then just started that good old 'chain sewing' and humming along the way.
There were a lot of fun strips of birds, cows, camels, sheep, and chickens. It was a little hard to keep track of whether they were on their heads or other wise - it was just the joy of putting things together.
A bright and fun quilt - 40" x 48" - that was added to the box off to Sarah. I see so many projects that were done over the last few months in this quilt top. How fun to think that all those pieces got a chance to be part of a quilt that is going to wrap someone in hugs and love.
A lot of you have told me you are 'dumping', and I can't wait to see them all come Linky Party time.
