First Kit Done

 In my first blog post of 2022
I stated that one goal is to work on the 
cabinet of kits I've accumulated over the years.
There are purchased kits and kits I've put together.
The first kit is done! 
Well, it's a finished top, anyway.

This kit was purchased...
I don't remember where
and I'm really wondering why.
It is not anything I would buy today,
but it's done and will be quilted and donated.

This was actually a good one for me to start with
since it was small and easy to make.
I had to knock some rust off of my sewing!

I am not fond of the large square fabric at all,
but used it to move it out of my stash.



This quilt is not large so won't take me long to quilt it.

This year I was invited to join the Gridster Bee
and am so excited.  It's made up of quilters,
mostly in California,
but there are two of us who are not.
Each month someone is "Queen Bee"
and the others make blocks that she requests.
This month Patti chose Ayumi Takahashi Envelope pattern
from "Patchwork Please"
and asked that we think of them as "Love Letters".

These are paper pieced blocks and went together pretty quickly.

These will be mailed off to California today or tomorrow.


Happy Quilting!

That kit is definitely not YOU! But nice, nonetheless. Someone will love it. Speaking of love, I love your love letter blocks!

The kit quilt is really pretty and an excellent example of fabric we might not have ever purchased alone, but it works well with the others in the final project. And those Love Letters blocks are fantastic!!!

The star quilt looks like the 4th of July to me. How large is it? Is it sized as a lapsize, or a child size? Where do you donate your quilts? Cute idea to have a Queen Bee. They really do look like love letters. Good luck with your projects.

The quilt turned out really nice and would be a lovely quilt of valor. One kit done is a great start to the year! How was the storm where you are? Did you lose power?

I should have the same resolution! Some of mine make me wonder why too. Isn’t it funny how our styles change over the years? I love the envelopes. That’s a great pattern and your fabrics for them are perfect. Would the finished quilt be a good one for a Quilt of Valor? It looks like a good one for that.

Love those envelopes your fabric choices are exquisite! Great finish on the quilt top.
Have a great weekend
