:Week in review:
Sat: School Block Reception for all the participants. We had 94(!) people attend and it was great to have the kids there to receive their certificates & ribbons. They love to see their quilt blocks hanging in the gallery, along with checking out everyone else's block. This year we had 176 blocks entered, from 17 states!
Tues: Junior Quilters - I love seeing how 9 kids can be making the same quilt pattern, but each will turn out differently because of their fabric choices. Best job ever!
Wed: JQ volunteer hours - cutting fabric, sorting, general helpfulness.
Thurs: will kick off my Girl Scout series. 11 girls coming for 4 weeks to make a small quilt.
Phew! with all of that it's no wonder I haven't gotten much done with my own quilts.
Okay, so this wasn't one of my projects, but it is still a finish! I needed a sample of the quilt that the scouts will be making in their series. After changing my mind on patterns on Mon., I finally got the blocks together and sewn into a top today. (Nothing like waiting for the last minute). I ran out of the Charcoal Kona for my background, and it was out at Hancock's *gasp* so I used black instead on 3 of the setting triangles. Gives it a neat look.
Finished all 9 blocks - Hooray! Blogged about 'em as well here, so I won't repeat the photo. Next up is the sashing.
Sparkle QAL - hosted by Megan at Canoe Ridge Creations and Jeni at In Color Order - I played with some fabric ideas a couple weeks ago for this, but not with any solid intentions in joining in. Well, once I pulled fabrics, that was that. I cut my pieces out for a 4-block mini size sparkle quilt and just need to figure out a background.
Star Dots - still sitting pretty on my table
