May is in our rear view and that means it's time to show off our Let's Book It project at Vrooman's Quilts. I've been so busy sewing for other people that I wasn't sure I'd be showing up this month, but I managed to sneak this one in. A few months ago I cut 960 1.5 squares from scraps, they ended up being put in a baggie waiting for me to catch up. I can't tell you how many times I looked at that baggie and wondered what in the world I had been planning, those little squares looked more like something Sharon would love to play with.
I started going through bookmarks and there it was at From Blank Pages blog.
I love the scrappy look and all of the colors, it's called Candyland quilt. I have now used all of my white scraps :) the other colors are still out of control.
This came together really fast, for the quilting I just did outline stitching and crosshatch in the larger white areas. The directions were perfect.
That's it for May, I love the Let's Book It party. For anyone who doesn't know about the Let's Book It Party, it's the genius idea of Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts, make something from a book, magazine or pattern that you already have, you know, the one's you bought that are now gathering dust, make something and link up. It doesn't even have to be a finish, just work on it. I've been cleaning out old magazines and using mostly scraps, so it's a double clearing out although I still don't seem to have anymore space.Think about joining in, it's fun, easy, pretty much no rules and you're making something you already had planned to make.
June will be crazy here, this girl is getting her doctorate and we have family coming in from all over. I expect to just explode with pride.
The soon to be Dr. Coral Gaffney
