Hands 2 Help Update

I am soooooooper slow on this. The quilts are due on the 20th(!) and I still have my first one on the design wall. This weekend I need to get it in gear, pedal to the metal and all that!

Part of the delay has been due to my rearranging the blocks. They are slightly different than this photo now and I hope I will keep my bloody mitts off of them and just sew them together already.

On advice from Sarah who is coordinating this challenge, I am going to pick up some flannel to use as the batting. I am donating to Little Lambs of Utah and the quilts need to be folded up to fit into a backpack, so thinner is better.

Quilting Block Ideas

The Sunshine Quilting Guild has a monthly block lotto. I have been playing around with some ideas. I saw two blocks online that I liked so I made my own versions. The first one was inspired by this. The second was inspired by many photos. Just Google Tilted Square block.

I already have the fabrics. Next step will be test blocks, then real selfie and dino blocks. I want to start with the selfie one but the dino blocks are for next month’s lotto so I better get on those first!

Here is a great post about the monthly block lotto.
