This week I chose fabric for the borders of my Law Enforcement Appreciation quilt:
I visited Quilts for Cure, thanks to a nudge from Valerie at Evening in the Garden Quilts. The heart blocks being collected by HollyAnne are just like the ones that The Nimble Thimbles and Cherry Creek Lane Quilters made for the Pulse Quilts that we sent to Orlando last year. The only difference is the color!
Blocks for Quilts for Cure are to be made in blue, yellow, and white. I'm pretty sure that I have some fabrics that will work. Also... I feel certain that there may still be time to make a few blocks!! Time, maybe. The right sized fabric scraps, no. :o((
Here is how my ONE block progressed...
Laying out the pieces:
Marking the sewing lines:
What's that white "pencil" thing, Joyful???
Double-sewing the angles results in "Bonus" Triangles (not pictured.) I use them for other projects instead of discarding:
Bonus Triangles are trimmed away and stored for future use:
The pressing was done...
... And the block was completed:
I'm off to find an envelope!
** If you missed the February 14th mailing date, you might like to participate by making a 20-block quilt top and sending that off. If you choose that option, send an email to HollyAnne so that she will be expecting it. Surely, if you mail a quilt top by the end of the week, she'll still be able to quilt it. You will have saved her a step in the quilt making process. If you are REALLY inspired, I'm sure she would accept completed quilts made with that Heart pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew!
I'll be linking up with Kat for her Sew Some Love on Wednesday.
Until next time...
Sew Some Love!!!
