Time has really been running fast this week - and I have had a lovely weekend so far, with several activities outside the house. If you see a broad smile passing by, it might be mine :-)
I have added two finishes to my list this week - first Judy's 1 hour a day challenge, and next the care quilt, finished late Thursday night.
Now they are both washed and ready for sending to my favourite cause on Monday - children with long term diseases - through the Norwegian Quilt Association.
Remember me being overwhelmed by my own fabric collection recently?
A quick estimate tells me that each care quilt I have made so far this year uses an average of 7-8 meters of fabrics.
I have made 5 care quilts since the beginning of January.
5 times 7-8 meter equals 35-40 meters of fabrics!
That is a dent in the collection all right, even with a 20 meters buy this year.
I have emptied one box in my shelf - 8 litres / 2 gallons.
Yes, the dent is visible now, if not very big, but as you might know, an elephant has to be eaten one serving at a time. Be persistent and it will be all eaten in the end ;-)
Not that I want to use all my fabrics, but I do not have to have as much as I have now.....
I am taking a break from making care quilts until autumn. I do enjoy Judy's HAD challenges and chances are big I will join in again.
Thank you Judy for generously charing your patterns!
I guess you all can see I am making the quilts smaller and do simple borders, but I don't think that matters as long as I am having fun :-)
What is next on my to do list?
NI blocks, applique blocks and stitchery as far as I can see, but you will never know :-)
