2012 SEVENTH annual ms quilt of comfort, hope and joy

this all started 7 years ago when i was just trying to figure out how to raise a bit of money for the ms walk...the girls at my local curves were so supportive and helpful....they made it sooo easy for me to raffle my first quilt and TA DA it has been tradition for me ever since.... it is getting to be a pretty BIG DEAL raising over $1000 each year... friends and family are so helpful and encouraging....
this years  quilt inspiration came from rita  @ redpepperquilts she does amazing things with fabric !!!!

started w the pile of goodness

cut 2 1/2 " strips...i was able to use up a lot of little bits....and i used this mini quilt rack to keep all my strips sorta organized....

loving this fun log cabin right from the start...

easy peasy wonderful

i am going to connect these pretties w white sashing.. and i was having so much fun sewing w kay  
yesterday that i actually made too many blocks ....xoxo

i will be back soon w more about this wonderful ms raffle quilt xoxox pam

happy snowday with my reunion charm pack

it is a beautiful winter wonderland around here....and i always get a lot of sewing done when i am snowed in...i was inspired by this and my new moda reunion charmpack.....thanks andie !!

so pretty but so cold!!

i modified andies scrappy baby a bit cuz i so wanted to use all of my little charmpack

i made a plastic template to draw the sew line and cut the 5 1/2 " charm square on the diagonal... block is 8 1/2"
used up bits and pieces for the backround and i love the look... can u see the wonky star? also at this point the blocks were falling off my design wall so i moved to the floor  using eva's flannel back vinyl tablecloth trick...everything stays in place and it becomes very portable....
42 blocks many possibilities...can u see the bulls eye?  the heart?... the zigzag?
it will finish up at 48" x 56"....unless i decide to make it bigger....but then i will have to buy more fabric.... xoxo

happy monday xoxoxo pam
