DWM - 7/15/13


I think this is just a fun quilt - LANTERNS - being done as a QAL over at Quilty Habit.  Today the second lantern pattern will be revealed.  I am using Kona Sand and World Tour by Parson Gray.  There are actually two blocks pinned there as I plan on making the larger lap size and need double the blocks.  I've had a lot of requests for men's quilts and this should fit the bill. 






Boy, did I have trouble finding this month's color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge - I dug through everything and every place!  Some ugly fabric got used - oy!!  I used every bit (smidgy-widgies got tossed) and had to pull a FQ to get the last row on the log cabins.  And to keep with putting whimsy in my Sprout blocks - look real careful - I had a 3.5" square that I used for making HSTs - so two partial fishy fun.



And since my swap partner has received the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap - Patriotic Theme - I can share the quilt that went with that little dolly.

Sewingly Yours,

  20. I'm sure your swap partner was delighted when she received the quilt and patriotic doll. They will be great decorations for summer holidays.
    I have been enjoying seeing your Sprout blocks and the stars you have been making for the Rainbow Challenge. Finding teal in my scraps has been difficult. I finally dug into some yardage.
