Loose Threads: Project Linus Quilt Tops

Project Linus Quilt Tops

I've been under the weather for the past several days. I have pneumonia about this same time every winter, and this is the time. The good news is that I am on the mend.

Earlier last week I made a few tops to donate to the Project Linus Make A Blanket Day. I've hung onto the hand dyes in this top since I went to Paducah in 2001 so I figured it was time to cut into them. And, I love buying the Kaffe fabric but can never quite figure out what to do with it. I kind of like it with these hand dyes.
(46" X 60")

This one is a baby blanket 36" X 36" made from Moda's Gypsy Rose charm pack plus some older Moda prints.

This Project Linus quilt (46" X 60") is made from red lobster fabric from my friend, Susie, from Noblesville. I went to her house when I was making my Nearly Insane quilt to raid her green stash. And, somehow when I got home I mysteriously had this fat quarter of lobster fabric. I was able to make this whole quilt with just that one fat quarter of lobster fabric plus the red and black from my stash. And, as you can see, Mr. Kitty likes it.

Now to get some flannel for backing and get some machine quilting done on these. Until next time.
