“Beautiful Girls” Quilts

I have been very busy over the last month working on two quilts for by precious cousins who were both hurt in an accident. The quilt below was made for Reagan. She and her sister Allie were in the accident and while Reagan is healing quickly, Allie’s has a longer road ahead of her. The girls are very close in age and I am making both of them quilts in hopes that it will provide some comfort. This is the absolute happiest fabric in my collection, I have had it for years. Allie’s quilt is about half way there.

It is a string quilt done as a “quilt as you go”. The joining of the blocks was interesting. Didn’t go exactly as I had wanted. Hoping I can apply some lessons learned to Allie’s.

30 Week Wonder & More Pineapples

Before I got started on the girls quilt I did get block 8 done of the 30 week wonder. However, I am now 3 blocks behind! I have at 19 weeks to get back on track, so all is well. I had also tried a new pineapple block ruler/technique and this is my favorite, by far! I will write a big blog about pineapple blocks after I take a class at festival this year.
