It was such a blessing to participate in Gene Black's Quilt Angels Project last year, that I immediately jumped at the chance to participate again this year. Gene asks for volunteers to make quilts that he takes to a children's home in Alabama for kids who need a safe place to stay. For those who read my blog, you know I was born and raised in Alabama and hold the people dear to my heart. This particular children's home is in an Alabama city I spent many pleasant summer days on its resident lake as a teenager. You can read more about my 2013 quilt here.
This is where I'm at on the 2014 quilt today, below.
Film in the Fridge's strip quilt mini tutorial to get started.
Finally figured out the panoramic feature on my new iPhone which was most helpful in deciding which colors should go where. Colors are a weak area of mine and seeing the placement via a photo image was a great determining factor in their order. This quilt should be pleasing for a boy or a girl, I'm thinking.
Film in the Fridge explains all that pretty well..... but even then I got 'confused' as you can see below. 9 & 10
should've been sewn to 11 & 12. Gee whiz. At least this was easy to correct
and no seams had to ripped out.
