In the meantime, I'll post about something I do feel good about- helping others. I came across a blog post where Kelsey of Kelsey Creates put out a call for help making blocks for a donation quilt. The quilt will be made for an acquaintance of hers who not only lost his home last year in the San Bruno gas line explosion, but was recently involved in a car accident that put him in the hospital. His wife is due to have a baby in December.
The block requested is a Mod Mosaic block, which I've been wanting to try. I love it. Here it is in the chosen color palette:
There's still time if anyone is interested in making a block.
And because my family keep hounding me about finishing their quilts, of course I decided instead to answer Pat Bravo's call to make a charity quilt for Project Linus. I received an email from her, and some of her beautiful studio scraps should be landing on my doorstep this week. I'm looking forward to playing with her pretty fabric, and I hope to knock out a quilt before Christmas.
