Next up are blocks I'm getting ready to mail out to Alycia for her Flags for Sue campaign. Alycia makes quits for Quilts of Valor and Sue was one of her dedicated sewers who passed away this year. In her honor Alycia is collecting blocks and making more Quilts of Valor. It's not too late if you want to make some to send to Alycia. Check out info on Flags for Sue on Alycia's blog. She would like them mailed by September 1. Here are the 3 I'm sending off this week.
To the left of the flags I've got my bargello quilt laid out. I'm adding strips below the finished section as I want it a little bigger. I'll be working on it a lot this week -- the month is almost up and this is my OMG.
My last set of blocks is for the October retreat. We are making 12" blocks out of Christmas fabric. ARGH! I just reread the directions and these are WRONG! I was suppose to use Christmas fabric with WHITE... not what I did. And, darn, I cut another pair of blocks out before I finished today. Ok, so, it won't be all that hard to change to white and Christmas. In fact I'm betting the blocks will look better with a white. And, I definitely have white on whites. I think this red just screams in this picture.
On to my weekly goals. It was another terrific week where I finished everything I planned to work on! And, it was a fairly long list. I actually was able to quilt a customer quilt and another charity quilt this past week. I was staying focused!
