Project Linus completion

 Anyone who has looked at my blog knows that I love to do quilts for Project Linus, and though it's been a while, here is another one.  This quilt actually is a mystery quilt pattern that some in my quilt guild did.  As you can readily see, it is an extremely easy pattern, but I am real pleased with the way it turned out.  I had intended it from the start to go to Project Linus, so chose fabrics that I thought would work for that purpose.  We have been told that PL is most in need of quilts big enough for older children, and especially boys, since they get more for girls, and I think this quilt will fill that bill, as do most of mine.

 On one of the blogs I was perusing the other day, I saw a block similar to this and decided that looked like fun, so out came just a small portion of my scraps, and I started in.  It was fun, and I now have 11 more similar blocks to go with it.  Now I need to sash them and put them all together and there will be another Project Linus quilt top.
Three of our DGC are coming over today, so I think maybe we will ride bikes and have a picnic.  The summer is going much too quickly to suit me!

Last night we went to a youth football fundraiser at a restaurant here in town and saw so many people we know.  Our fireman son was one of the servers.  They had police and firefighters helping with serving, and the tips that they got, as well as 20% of the restaurant proceeds, went to the youth football program.  Our grandson plays football, so of course we wanted to participate.  It was fun to see so many we knew there.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  I think ours will be quiet and that sounds great to me.


  1. You do such wonderful quilts for a great cause. Have fun with the kiddos.

  2. The boys get left out sometimes, that's a good one for them. It's a great cause you are supporting.
