How I Spent My Morning
The MCC (Mennonite Central Committee) is requesting quilts for Haiti. They want 60x80 inch or 82x90 inch sizes. I went through my pile of quilts and found a few that fit those requirements. I had a piece of that dandelion fabric (is it dandelions?) and started putting a new one together. The problem is that so far it's turning out too small. I don't have any more of the flower fabric so I'll have to keep adding borders until it's large enough. Unfortunately I'm also out of the dark green. I think I'll put one more border before the brown but I'll have to go through my stash and see if there is anything of a suitable colour.
I finished quilting Kitty Corner and sewed on the binding. Now I just have to hand sew it down.
I had to piece the back but I really like the look of the strip down the middle.
