Orange Crush & Giveaway
It took awhile, but I am now caught up with the Orange Crush mystery! My machine was smokin' here the last few days sewing day and night. The photo shows my Step 5 blocks and half blocks which means I have now also finished Steps 2 & 3. It feels good to be on top of one project anyway. The orange and blue remind me of Detroit Tigers' colors, but they are currently a very sad story.
Over the Memorial Day week-end I sewed 30 patriotic string blocks and 160" of Chinese coins strips for Heartstrings. They will be mailed and used for soldier quilts. These made a huge dent in my red, white/tan & blue strips.
Click on over to Embroidery Stitches for an opportunity to win a bundle of Benartex fat quarters.
Hope everyone has a relaxing and productive day!
Oops! While browsing through the Orange Crush photos on the Yahoo list, I noticed four blocks that I hadn't done for Step 5. NOW I am caught up! The colors appear a bit washed out on this photo. The first photo is more true to what they fabrics look like.
