More Quilts for Peace

This week I received three more quilts to bind for the quilts for peace project. I dropped them off yesterday and am so proud to be able to help out with this project.

My hope is they bring comfort to those impacted by the loss.

My contribution to Quilts for Peace

As a member of the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild, we have been working with both the Dallas and McKinney Modern quilt guilds to make, assemble and finish blue heart quilts for folks impacted by the violence in Dallas.

Our president, Ann texted me to ask if I would mind binding a quilt. Now for those of you who know me, you already know the answer. I replied back, "only one"?  I got one and here it is. We recently went on a 9 hour car ride and binding in the car is my absolutely favorite place. I like all of the natural light and it is a great way to pass the time.

The only problem, I was done a few hours into it. Sigh. I'm meeting her this weekend, so maybe when I turn in this quilt, she will have some more for me do.

Starbucks Mug Rug Swap | Round 7

This swap is now hosted in Instagram, but it started on Flickr. I sat out a few rounds, but really missed it so for Round 7, I got back in. My partner likes color so this is the mug rug I made for her.  What possessed me to think I could do a hexagon shaped mug rug, I don't know. I wanted it to be unique this allowed me some practice with binding corners.

My partner sent a little late so I got a nice surprise the other day as my package came in. 
She made me not only a mug rug, but also a zip pouch and a clear pouch too. The mug she sent was Utah, which I need for my ever growing You are Here Collection.

I love this swap and Yvonne over at @quiltydream is a wonderful hostess.
