Shelter-in-place Quilting



Who knew that the coronavirus would send me back to blogging! I've spent the first week not getting much accomplished.

I am hoping this will help me finish some projects. But first I am starting a new one. There are many sew-alongs online, and this one captured my fancy.



Carole is hosting this quilt-along at https://frommycarolinahome.com/category/2020-scrap-dance-twist/. She started in January and she posts once a month. The steps are very easy. 

I've chosen to use the leftover fabrics from Tula Pink's line Flutterby from 2008. I made a tuffet back then...



I have kept the leftovers in a bag stored away ever since. I have just enough to make this Twist mystery quilt. Today I cut the fabrics. 


I am a couple months behind, but the first two steps are very easy and I will be caught up in no time.

Quilts Made By My Mother-In-Law

My mother-in-law began quilting when she was 65. Twenty years later, she has a lovely legacy of quilted love, gifted to her children when married 25 years and to her grandchildren upon their marriages. Recently we hosted a quilt show of these quilts.

Charity Quilts

My quilt guild works on a lot of charity quilts. Last Friday seven quilts were completed. They will be going to Union Gospel Mission, the women's shelter. These quilts were all made from donated blocks and fabrics.










A few more quilts were readied for finishing or giving to other ministries...






Today I am linking up with "Oh Scrap" at   http://quiltingismorefunthanhousework.blogspot.co.nz/2018/03/oh-scrap-geese-migration.html
