Yesterday a lovely lady from Project Linus came round to collect the quilt I made with the help of the lovely ladies from the Joy circle of do.Good Stitches. While she was here I asked her some questions about the best size of quilt to be making, and I mentioned I had another quilt in the works.
When I showed her the blocks that have been arriving from the Joy ladies for the last month she got very excited, because apparently they don't get many quilts donated that are boyish. She told me 16 blocks (about 4 foot square) is the perfect size for a wheelchair quilt. 16 was the magic number because there are 8 of us in the circle and we each made 2 blocks :)
After that there was no stopping me, the kids helped me arrange the blocks when they got in from school and I managed to get the top pieced before dinner was ready.
I can hardly wait to get this basted and quilted, because I think this will be the perfect accessory for a little boy's wheelchair!
Thanks again to the lovely ladies in the Joy circle who sent me the most fantastic I spy snowball blocks. I asked therm to follow this great tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew using boyish fabric, and I love each and every block they made!
Hopefully I can do them justice with my quilting....
Hope you have a great weekend, and if you pop back here on Monday you will find my Modern Mini quilt for the Modern Mini Challenge Blog Hop
Eeek! There have been some fantastic minis so far, I'm a bit nervous!
