Quilting for Kids WIP

It's been exciting this week to receive so much mail!

Mail Call! 9/7/11

And looks what's inside!
All the pretty blocks together.  Don't they look lovely?

Garden Fence received to date 9/7/11

Stars Received to date 9/7/11

Any and all reservations I had about all these different purples and pinks getting together and playing nicely are gone.  I think they look wonderful together and can't wait to keep adding more.

Thank you girls so much for joining Quilting for Kids and getting these blocks to me so quickly! And those that are still working on theirs, let this inspire you to keep on.  I know you probably have many other projects working, but just imagine your block with these.  It's a little piece of beauty!

I'm going to get sashing cut out for these quilts, but don't think I'll begin sewing until I receive all of the blocks.  That way I can make sure that all of the shades and colors are distributed nicely.

If you'd like the back story on these quilts and Quilting for Kids, read the story here.

In other news, I've sent off my Fall Bee block.

Also, I've been doing a little embroidery for Halloween.  I don't really decorate for it that much, but friends of mine do, so I thought I'd get some things done for them.

  12. Stopping by from the SBM. I love the look of your blog; your grey, yellow and white background is very elegant and modern. And the Halloween decorations you did are too cute! I have to try that.
