I mentioned yesterday that we had the Country School Quilters Sewing Saturday this past weekend. I reserve that time to work on Quilts of Valor and Veteran's quilts. I'm trying to alternate between the two.
These green crumb blocks were the 4th (and last) set of crumb blocks that I made several years ago. I'm kind of sick of them and couldn't bear to make another gigantic quilt like this one. I decided to make 2 quilts instead. This one will be a QOV.
This smaller one that I completed last month will be a Veteran's quilt. I even got the backs made for both when I got home Saturday night. These will go into the to-be-quilted pile now and, hopefully, will not be there for long!
I like to have my Saturday Sewing project set up and ready to go so next I looked for some ideas to use up a basket of strings. One of the best sources for inspiration for service quilts is MaryQuilts. I decided on Half Square Strings as my next project. It will use up some strings and some fat quarters. I have the supplies all together to make one QOV and one Veteran's quilt. This should keep me occupied at Saturday Sewing for a few months.
