Project Linus

Some time ago I posted about a basket of quilting fabrics and patterns that our son had won for me at a raffle.  This Connecting Threads flannel quilt kit was in the basket.  It was a joy to make and the fabrics were such good quality.  I have a lot of fabric left from it, so I'm sure I can come up with something else for Project Linus with the leftovers.

Next Friday two friends and I are headed to a quilt retreat.  I have had it on my mind a lot, and I'm making lists and trying to figure out just what among my several options that I want to take to work on.  I have precut the first two blocks in the free Bunny Hill Designs BOM and I am taking them to start with.  The blocks are so cute, and I'm excited to get going on them.  I'll keep watching for the March block.

I pulled out my Farmer's Wife quilt blocks the other day, and cut the setting blocks and corners.  I did a little bit of putting it together and I'm thrilled with the way it looks. 

I've been trying to be careful about what I eat, and then friends invited us to go to a German restaurant tonight, so that's definitely not going to help the cause.  Hopefully I will get back on the "careful" wagon tomorrow.

Have a wonderful weeked, and hopefully you will have some quality time doing whatever floats your boat.


  1. That's darling! Have fun at your retreat.

  2. Wow, it's been a long time since i visited, where did the time go? The quilt is lovely and it will be fun to see what you will come up with from the left overs.

    I hope you had a good time at your retreat.
