Finished my fourth Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for this year... I have purple, aqua, red and green. Still missing one. Just remembered the Multicolored month... I only made one strip of geese that month. Here are the greens I finished this week.
and this green goose smile
Here are all 5 green strips
I'll link up to the RSC on Saturday. See you there.
Today would be my only daughter's 44th birthday. She was such a bright penny. A perky girl, you know the kind. I loved her so much. . . but she died of breast cancer in 2013 and I've been like half a person since then. I usually donate my H2H quilt to Happy Chemo, in honor of her, but this year there is Camp Hobe, and I knew she would want me to donate to kids with cancer. I made an I Spy quilt in a strip design. I hope it is fun for one of those kids.
I measured it, and it qualifies as the right size, but I promptly forgot the dimensions.
Above shows the backing - had to piece it, but that red was just right with the wavy multicolored print. Yellow print binding.
Here's the close-up of some of the prints ....
I quilted straight lines through one side of each strip.
H2H quilt for Camp Hobe done and off in the mail this afternoon. I feel such relief! I'm such a procrastinator. I did have trouble with the sewing machine on the quilting and binding. (Exasperating.) The thread kept breaking and the stitch length was way off. I have a shaky hand and with my eyes, makes it really hard to rethread so often. One time I got to sew for less than 2 inches! I didn't really like the fabrics I chose at first, but after I put in a few plainer color on color prints, it looked better to me.
I'll show it off on Sunday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict .
So now I'm rewarding myself with some RSC green and making another strip of geese.
I picked out a dark to light grade this time.
Have a great spring day... we are currently continuing the enlargement of Lake Superior.
Since I posted last I've worked on the H2H quilt and I did make a set of green geese... before the announced new color! Here it is.
I wasn't so proud of it... one of the geese is not ironed right, I didn't notice until I was done. Oh well. I can always make more. Tried to make a yellow one, too, but it's really hard to grade the shades of such a light color.
For those interested, my eyes are getting better. The degree of double sight is diminishing, I can concentrate and get a single image with both eyes open - if it's a simple object I'm looking at. Things are looking up!
