Wednesday, June 16, 2021
It's been a while since I've had the time (or the energy!) to post on a Wednesday, but don't think that means I have given up on my scraps! Now that Hands2Help is in the books for this year, I should have more time to work on them.
And this week I'm very pleased to share something really special! A while back I was contacted by the wonderful people at Felicia's World about their paper piecing templates. They asked if I would be willing to give them a try and post about it on my blog. Now, if you've followed me for long you'll know that I have never really been able to wrap my head around the concept of paper piecing - but I decided that since I could make log cabin blocks by traditional piecing, I should be able to manage paper piecing. So I said yes, and they sent me some samples to try!
After cutting out my vacation project, I took the leftover fabrics and cut them into 1.5" strips, then added some white strips and solid teal 2" squares.

I love Mondays - and especially the Monday of the week before vacation! It will be a super busy week as I get everything ready, but the anticipation makes it all worth it.
But first, let's see what happened with last week's list....

Hooray, it's Friday! And we all know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on! Are you ready? Let's go!
A couple of weeks ago, I finished a quilt! But because other things were going on (H2H, maybe?) I didn't have a chance to really share it with you. But tonight as I sit under this lovely summer weight quilt I decided it was time to show it off!

Mondays are so much fun, aren't they? The fresh start to a brand new week, all full of potential! Who knows where the week will take you? Monday is my day to take care of some weekly chores, like paying bills, doing laundry, and grocery shopping. That way the rest of the week is free for other things!
And here's what I did with that "free" time last week...

We've made it! Thirteen weeks ago, the Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge 2021 began, and since that time, an amazing effort has been going on to spread comfort across the world! By the numbers, quilters from 45 U.S. states, four Canadian provinces, and one Australian territory participated. Isn't that incredible? And here's another number...
