Hi everyone! Another Friday has come around and today looks like a great day. I hear we're going to get up to a foot of snow later this weekend. Yikes! Winter apparently just realized that it forgot to do its' job this year.
Today I have this little beauty to show off:
Friendship ribbon stars! Okay, it's not so little. The top is about 62 by 80. These blocks are ones that I traded with friends over the course of several months last year. I also traded blocks made from solids, so I have another quilt to make up later.
Yes, I joined two of the groups. What can I say? I had just moved and I was lonely.
This one was easy to make up since I already had all of the blocks. The hard part was laying it out. So many choices! Finally got it set, though, and--miracle of miracles--everything fit! It went together pretty quickly.
I'm really happy with how this swap turned out. I was afraid that all of the fabrics would be ugly ones that people wanted to get rid of, but I worried for nothing. One person even fussy cut her centers:
Isn't that darling?
This quilt is destined for donation to Happy Chemo through Sarah's Hands to Help challenge. Doesn't it look like someone would like to take this to a chemo appointment?
Hope everyone has a great weekend. If it snows, I'm planning to sew some more! Who would have guessed? If it doesn't snow, I guess I'll be stuck going to the grocery store or something, and who wants that?
