When I was in Ottawa in February, I did some shopping at Mad About Patchwork--an online store owned by my friend, Pam. As I was leaving, she gave me two bins full of bolt ends of various colours of Kona Cottons as her donation to charity quilts made by the Elgin Piecemakers. Last night, I sorted all of the pieces into piles by colour and pulled out all of the grays, reds, oranges, yellows and one blue strip. I decided to make a man's chemo quilt.
I cut out some 10" squares of the grays and then some 1.5" strips of the coloured fabrics. I used the slash and insert method to make these blocks.
I have also been working on my liberated squirrel quilt...the top is done...
I will show a picture later. The back is also done. I am in the process of figuring out how to quilt this one. I may even hand quilt this one.... Yikes!
It is still really cold here but the snow is slowly disappearing. These brave daffodils have even made an appearance.
Happy Spring, everyone!
