DWM: a finish and a start on the November list

I have two must-do projects for November. One is finished and the other is begun.  But first: here are the X Plus blocks for this month's Block Lotto .  Aren't these great?

"Winter Berries" is my contribution for our P.E.O. holiday ornament exchange. (Ornaments don't have to go on the tree.) The pattern is by Pat Sloan.  It was published in McCall's Quick Quilts and republished in McCall's Scrap Quilts. I had marked both magazines with post-its which I took as a sign to make it.  10" x 37", 1 yard, all from my stash.

I offered a t-shirt quilt for the Rotary Golf Outing auction last May. Mom and daughter brought the t-shirts in August. I said I'd have the quilt by Christmas . . . which is just around the corner. Mom said daughter likes dark green, but I went a tad brighter for the sashing and border fabric.  T-shirts are cut and stabilized.   This week will be somewhat less-meeting-filled (see previous post) and I hope to get the quilt assembled.

  1. Looks like you are busy! The X Plus blocks are lovely and I think the t-shirt quilt looks like it will be very successful too.

  2. pretty x blocks and your little swap piece too....never done a t-shirt quilt yet...have a fun week!

  3. Love ALL your projects here today. How nice of you to make that t-shirt quilt. They are a challenge!

  4. Thanks for sharing all your great projects with Oh Scrap! I really like the X blocks.

  5. Very fun and colorful X blocks. You are brave to offer to make a T-shirt quilt. I once thought of donating that type of service for one of the school auctions, but there were a few of the parents I would have not wanted to deal with. You are very brave in my book.

  6. Love the X blocks and the winterberry piece is a cutie, too. The green is perfect for the tee shirt quilt sashings.


Thanks for stopping to read my blog. I can't respond to every comment, but be assured that I appreciate each one.
