Another Positivity Quilt-Along Update
Well, well, well. While we are busy trying to spread positivity all throughout blog land and beyond, it is time for a linky party. Today is the day for half of the 48 blocks to be shared if you care to join in. This Positivity quilt-along is for Mercy Hospital in Sacramento, CA and it is time for a wee bit of another update, don’t you think?! Where should you go to check on all the details and to link up, you ask??!! Why Bernie’s website at Needle and Foot!
Quilt-Along Details Again
The free quilt-along has a nice, easy pace. Preeti has shared the schedule and some details about different block options. There are even sponsors – and some very fabulous ones. Bernie at Needle and Foot coordinates for the Mercyful Quilts program. She shared some excellent details about the charity as well as quilting/mailing options. Somehow, today’s linky party for the first 24 blocks snuck up and surprised us. Half the quilt top! Yikes.
Another Positivity First
So, we shared our first update last week about how we decided to use a Riley Blake rolie polie called Kisses for the pluses. Saturday morning I shared a photo on Instagram with my stack of positivity work for the day.
Yup, Sue was all finished cutting out all the pieces we need for our 48 blocks. Talk about using a rolie polie to its full advantage – do you see the salvages and wee bit of fabric pieces that are leftover?!! Good job, Sue, on maximizing the fabric strips!
Another Positivity Eight
As I mentioned, we shared our first twelve blocks just last week. At first, we were going to squish all 24 blocks on our design wall next to Addison’s ballerina center block (share space nicely, please).
Instead, we picked out some (eight) of our favorite blocks so far. Do you do that as you iron? I often find myself saying, oooooh, you’re so pretty. You are my favorite block but don’t tell your friends. And so it goes until there are eight favorites for no other reason than the color combinations speak out. Sue and I often agree on our favorites, thankfully. That yellow one with the navy cornerstones still speaks out the loudest to me as well as the two tones of green. I’d be hard-pressed to find a block I didn’t like in this half-finished quilt.
