Thanks Suze, I am glad you like those. I have had a challenge to come up with unique fill sections for each different section. Spiky stuff in the orange and flowing stuff in the  blue.

I was gonna take a hike this morning in an open space that is really pretty and was gonna do a photoshoot if two quilts but is is way too smokey today. The full sun looks like a fuzzy ball. Guess I will have to maybe do the photoshoot in New Mexico.

Guess I will go up to the shop and load a customer quilt this morning instead.

It's ok, Suze. I've done nothing in a couple months, while prepping for exam. So you've already done more than me! :P

I just thought I’d post here.  Yesterday I was binding a charity quilt.  When done,I decided to dig in my boxes of squares.  I still had a lot of 3” squares.  So I made a decision....

the explosion in Beirut damaged 3 of 4 containers sitting in port waiting for dispersing by one of the charity organizations that I contribute to.  They lost 22,000 quilts, plus school and health kits.  It makes me so sad to think about the 22.000 quilts that are now needed even more desperately than before!

they want quilts that are at least 60 x 80.  The scrap mystery quilt I finished a week or so ago was 60” square.  So!  I got put my 3” squares and made more 4 patches!  My mystery quilt is now 60 x 80 and ready to finish for LWR! Lol, still have more 3” squares.....

22,000 quilts lost?!  Holy cow, that's a lot of quilts!  All that charity work lost, so sad.

Yes it is heartbreaking to think of the lost quilts!  And I sure feel for that devastated people over there.  
Isn’t it hard to just comprehend 22,000 quilts?  Just gone in a moment....

22,000, that is alot.  So terrible what was destroyed, And much of their grain stores were destroyed also. Really sad.

Wow, Ellen, you're so prolific! Do you ever make quilts for fun, for yourself or family anymore?

I haven’t made one for me since this one last year....


 

doing lots and lots of charity right now.  I’m not teaching, so no need to make samples.  Using up stuff....

That's stunning! :) 

I prefer to work on my own stuff. Being able to use fabric and colors that I really enjoy to make something for someone I love is what makes me happy :D
