Something new

I feel like I've finished up some big projects and now I want to start something new... even though I still have a pile of unfinished projects lying around. One thing I want to do is a stash buster quilt. I have so much fabric, and would love to buy more (lol. Isn't that always the case? But I feel like I need to use up what I have before I get more...) So, why not make some quilts. I am thinking for my next donation I want to do a strip quilt based on blues and greens. Simply by making different widths of strips that go across the quilt - made of different fabrics. Super simple, but I think it could turn out pretty cute. :) We'll see what happens!

Where have I been???

Ok, so I haven't been here, but that doesn't mean I haven't been doing anything. :) Mostly I've been over at do.Good Stitches! Yup! I got in! I am a quilter - last month was our first month and this month is my month. It's been fun.

Here are my blocks for last month, based off this quilt.

do.Good Stitches - Harmony - Aug Block 2

And here are my blocks for this month. I can't wait to get everyone's blocks and put it together! :)

do.Good Stitches - Harmony Circle - Sept Blocks 

There is also another flickr contact that is asking for pouches/bags to put bathroom/hygiene supplies for the fire victims in Texas.  I haven't committed to anything yet... I'm not sure about my available time, but I would love to help, and if anyone else would like to help that would be awesome!!! Just let me know, or go ahead and let her know. :)

 There is nothing better than doing something good for someone in need! :)
