Project Linus Quilts Again!

Finished two more Project Linus quilts that were in the quilting pile and now have binding and are ready to go to other pile that will be taken to the drop off point soon!!!! Lots of piles!

The first one has NASCARs in the middle with checkered flags around them. This was a fun one to make with a boy in mind. Oh course, I'm sure there are girls that like NASCAR, too!!!
The second one I called "Sweet Violets," because the fabrics have tiny flowers in them that reminded me of violets and springtime.

Still working on my wool applique here and have my little scarf half-way knitted. It is the kind with the slit that lets you pull one end through. I got some black and blue yarn that has little spots of purple in it--fun stuff. I was overwhelmed when I went to the yarn store and saw all the choices---had to have the saleslady help me pick out the right kind--overchoice, for me!!!! I'm just doing knit every row, so it is very relaxing--don't have to remember a pattern at all.

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

You have been busy. I am sure the child that gets either of those quilts will be so thrilled.
