I KNOW , I KNOW ...... start another quilt? ..... NOW? BUT, just like those Quilts of Valor quilts, I have also always wanted to make a Project Linus Quilt. AND, I just happened to come across a call for Project Linus quilts/blankets by December 15th (of THIS year that is .....) on Craftsy Blog. YIKES ..... December 15th OF THIS YEAR !!!!! Well..... MAYBE ..... IF the "MBIAJ Sewing and Quilting Dept" can pull a few tricks out of their sleeves and use a few short cuts like ......
......this stack of charm packs. Really, what could be easier ? These are already cut! ... and add a charm pack of solid white to any one of these charm packs = instant simple patchwork quilt !!! (and as you can see, the "MBIAJ Sewing and Quilting Dept" has quite the love affair with charm packs ..... AND jelly rolls , so I'm sure we can spare a few !)
Now, I'm guessing most of the quilts that are made for Project Linus are probably for babies and toddlers. Unfortunately, big kids also get sick. The teenager population (especially teenage boys) are probably kind of overlooked. SO, the "MBIAJ Sewing and Quilting Dept" has decided their Project Linus Quilt or Quilts (hoping to make more than one in the future) will be made for teenage boys. But, darn if precut charm packs and jelly rolls don't really seem to be made with teenage dudes in mind ..... although I did buy some solid jelly rolls in red, blue, gray, green, black , and white ...... which can be matched up with .....
...maybe some of this fabric
...or this cool stuff or ....
.....or this .... DUDE !!!!
Well, better get moving .... that fabric isn't gonna cut itself ! Think I'll start a campaign for precut fabrics (charm packs and jelly rolls)to be designed with teenage DUDES in mind !!!!
Be back soon!
