What a 'Nice day'!

The green blocks that I made earlier in the week certainly got my creative juices going! I couldn't stop making them! They are quick, big (finishing at 12") and are perfect for the assortment of fabrics donated to Project Linus, so the top is now completed!


The one in the book is much bigger, but I thought that was big enough for even a teenage Linus quilt. The instructions are from 'Schnibbles times two' by Carrie Nelson.


I hope Carrie will forgive me if I say there is nothing really earth-shattering in the book, but it features lots of lovely quilts made from either layer cakes (or 10" squares in my case) and charm packs. All the designs are illustrated in both sizes. Since the layer cakes have lots of different fabrics, it's easy to make the designs up as scrappy quilts, and I'm looking forward to making up more of the designs for Linus. And if you're on the look-out for quick, easy charity designs, which use up scraps, this could be the book for you too!

Looks fabulous...I wish I could get back to the machine...but somehow I never seem to be in one place for longer than an hour and then there are so many other things that need my attention.
