Sew Some Love Sunday - Cynthia Style

Welcome to another installment of Sew Some Love Sunday!!  This week I'm back to sewing for Covered in Love.  Cynthia, from Quilting is more fun than Housework, has volunteered to be the guest host for the May / June Block Drive.  Lucky Kat will (theoretically) be getting a break to sew some of her own quilts!!

I began with THIS batch of colorful strips:



Started sewing and not too long later ended up with THESE strip sets.  They are ready to meet my iron:



Next up, a date with my cutting mat, acrylic ruler, and rotary cutter:



Voila`!!  FOUR blocks waiting for their "sashing" pieces:



THIS little pile of white scraps:



Yielded THESE (perfectly sized) strips for finishing the blocks:



I made quick work of sewing:



Followed by another press and a final trim:



Not too bad, considering the month of May doesn't start until tomorrow!!!  :o))

Thanks to Kat and Cynthia for a FAST and EASY block for the May/June Block Drive!  If YOU haven't participated in the past, this is the PERFECT time to begin contributing to the Covered in Love program.  A handful of strips and a single afternoon are all that is needed to help make a difference!


I'll be linking up with:
 Cynthia for Oh Scrap!
and
Kat for Sew Some Love.

Until next time...
Sew Some Love!!!

  4. Oh, this looks like fun. I love making donation quilts, but I also like quick block projects that I can contribute to other quilts. I know I'll be able to make some of these, especially given the generous time frame. Thanks for sharing what you've done!
