Monday Meandering 6 - 11 - 2018

Yes, another week just went flying by.  EEK.  Do you think time goes faster the older you get?  I sure do.  

Today I'm sharing the two quilts I made from the 2017 Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I actually finished them several months ago but didn't get the pictures taken until this weekend just before I passed them on.  These are going to a NICU in the Richmond area.  Country Piecemakers, the Powhatan, VA guild to which I still belong, sends quilts to them on a regular basis.  It's great for us because one of our members works there and takes charge of the quilts. 

I tried to make a "boy" version and a "girl" version.  It's hard to tell but the top picture is the girl version because of the purple (ok, really dark purple border) and the pinks in the braids.  The boy version, with a blue border, does have some purple in it but I figured that would be ok.  Sometimes twins are in the NICU so our members try to have quilts that are alike but slightly different.  
You can see more posts about them here, here, here, and here.

Goals were achieved last week!

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie

Blogger is driving me crazy this morning -- I can no longer import text and get it to the right size.  So I retyped everything except the links and the siggie.  I made that text bigger but it doesn't match the rest. It's done, I'm tired of fighting it!  And ... the arrows at the bottom.

  1. Congratulations on reaching those goals! I feel your blogger pain. :-)

  2. Are those Crumbs in a Rail Fence? The on-point setting gives them a woven quality. Very cute!!

  3. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ the rainbow braid blocks! I may have to steal (borrow) that idea. The quilts look fabulous.

    Blogger is becoming more and more maddening. I hope it's back to normal soon.

  4. What cute quilts! I hope they end up with twins :)

  5. Cute finishes! I really like the block setting.

    Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  6. Very bright and fun finishes. That's a great pattern for using up scraps.


Thanks for visiting. Let me know what you're thinking about.
