Three IS the Number!

Three more quilts for Project Linus! The first one I called "Sunbursts." I don't know the real name of the block. It is a pattern from the Accuquilt GO! pattern book. I cut everything on the Accuquilt GO! Cutter except the strips for the 2 sashings. It cuts really nice half square triangles---even cuts off the "dog-ears" which I find very helpful when sewing them together. (Disclaimer: Not a salesperson or affiliated with Accuquilt Go! Company, just like the product, ya-da, ya-da.)

The second picture shows the quilt I named "Blue Red Flowers." Almost all of the fabrics have turquoise in them. The pattern is my old stand-by, Yellow Brick Road. I never get tired of making that pattern. Something to pick up when you have a few minutes and you can get quite a bit done on it.

The third one is a border quilt. It's called "School Buses on Parade." You have to look closely to see the buses, but they are there---all lined up in rows. This is in the M'Liss Hawley book "Fast, Fat Quarter Projects for Baby." This is my challenge book for the year---going to try to do all the quilts in the book by the end of the year, if possible. I'm making a good dent in them!

Hope you are all staying safe from the storms. My heart goes out to all the people who have lost so much.

Wow those are great - I especially love the first one! Good job, girl! Yes, I'm just sick about this latest round of storms - it's just unimaginable.

More really cool quils for those kids. Great job, Jan, as always.
