Yvonne, over at Quilting Jet Girl, requested blocks for a quilt for two very deserving kids. I had to jump on the bandwagon and whip up a couple! I love this project, not only do two kids get quilts that I'm sure will be loved but they will be helping with the making of the quilt - how cool is it that they will learn how to make a quilt in the process?! What an awesome idea to pass this craft/art on to two children that obviously have some talent in this area :)
I decided to do a little internet search for boat and musical note blocks. Yvonne had provided a link to a great PP music note but variety is the spice of life, especially when it comes to music, right? Here are my blocks:
|I thought the birds added a little touch of whimsy to the sail boat :)|
|I had just barely enough of this music print left from my black and white quilt to add to the music note. . . maybe scraps are not a bad thing ;)|
If you have a little extra time and a few scraps of fabric that are just screaming to be used for a good cause, check out Yvonne's request for blocks and join the fun :) While you are over there, check out Yvonne's quilts! You will not be disappointed, I promise, pinky swear even! :)
I'm off to the post office and to finish the Oakshott quilt top (not at the post office of course, I'll come back home to do that!!). Decisions have been made and it is mostly sewn together. . . oh my, another post this week?? Potentially so :) OH and I went to the Arizona Quilter's Guild quilt show last weekend! Stay tuned, I have pictures of the modern quilt entries and find out what made me stand in place gawking for two hours! :) Holy Hannah! Three posts in a week??? Been awhile since that has happened, but it could. . . Stay tuned!
Linking up with Jen over at Quilter in the Closet for Building Blocks Tuesday. This is a first for me! If you are looking for some block inspiration, check it out. Also linking up with Lorna for Let's Bee Social and Lee for WIP Wednesday.
Be back soon and in the mean time, keep on quilting!!
