Scraptastic Time

The Jelly Roll Race 2 has got me started on a major descrap kick.  Overwhelmed with a huge selection of pink charm squares, I decided on two different quilts.  Talk about too many squares, two quilts and I didn't even made a dent!


The first quit is called The Road to .... Oh Damn I found at the Quilty Friends blog.  This block finishes at 12 inches square.  I am going to use darker pinks and lighter pinks to help create the pattern.  



The minty green fabric is going to be the "Oops" blocks.  Quilty Friends has great directions for fabric requirement for many different sizes.  I am going with the 16 block option with borders.


The second quilt is called True Blue although this one is going to be True Pink!  The Quilt Ladies blog did 52 weeks of quilt block patterns, and week 50 caught my eye.  The plan is to complete 30 blocks, each finishing at 12 inches square.   



Even with my lofty goals this year, it would be nice to destash my older scraps as another goal!  I also would like to donate some of my scrap quilts to charity, so these might be a good donation pair!  Anyone know of any great organizations that need donations?  It would be nice for them to stay local to New England, if possible.

Sew long for now,

  1. Those look like they will be fun quilts to make. I am trying desperately to de-stash and sew for charity as well. I have donated to Project Linus in the past and currently am looking to send quilts to Hands to Help here is the link, http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/p/hands2help_11.html. Also Margaret's Hope Chest. Hopefully you find one that you can do.

  2. Angie's Shelter (for women escaping bad situations) can use bed quilts as they try to give each woman a set up for her new home when she leaves the shelter. They are in Manchester NH and can be contacted via New Horizons Shelter.
