Last week I woke to the news that Wombat Quilts had made it onto the “100 Best Quilting Blogs on the Planet”. Feedspot, a blog reader, had put together this list by looking at site traffic, followers etc. I came in at number 39. To say I was pleasantly shocked is an understatement.
While I was looking through the list I noticed they had marked my blog as posting about once a month…. had I really slipped off schedule that much! The answer is yes, kind of. So in the spirit of sharing more I thought I would show you what I am working on this week…
A couple of months ago I borrowed a friends Baby Go cutter and went to work cutting some of my scraps into small circles (check out this quilt wip….) and small half square triangles (HST).
Last week while I was attempting to clear some space in my spare bedroom I stumbled across the shoe box with my Lizzy House HST in it. Inspired by a block I saw on Instagram I started making these crazy but fun 10 1/2 inch blocks.
Now I was working with 3 inch unfinished squares but if you wanted to do a bigger block you could use 3 1/2 inch squares for a 12 inch finished block…
Last night I finished making the last of the blocks (20 in total). Today I just have to put the top together.
This will be my first quilt for 100 Quilts for Kids 2016, a drive that is held annual to encourage quilters to make and give quilts to children in need. This is my 4th year of playing along and I love the emphasis on giving leading up the holiday season. Between now and December 1st you can make and donate a quilt to a children’s charity in your local area to play along… and maybe win a prize.
