 Nationwide Plaza Quilters make a lot of kwilts for Project Linus.
We recently met for a sewing day,working on the kits made from Project Linus fabric 
that was donated by Christa Quilts.  
I keep thanking this generous, sweet kwilter!

Coleen and Janet are chain stitching the easy pattern...
making a top in about 2 hours...including a lot of fun chatter.  

Two bright and cheery finished tops...
by two bright and cheery kwilty friends!
3 more to do plus a bag of Project Linus fabric scraps.    

Kits I put together included backing, batting and binding.
Gals will finish them and then, just imagine the smiles that
will come when these are given to some little tykes! 

For me there is nothing quite as rewarding as knowing a little time and effort 
can touch someones life in such a wonderful way. 
And having wonderful friends who make it happen!

Noteworthy fabric from Moda is one of my all time favorites.  
Miller's Dry Good QS in Ohio Amish Country, also a favorite
I am stash bustin again!

My first LOW VOLUME kwilt.

I grabbed Jenny Janome (my small travel machine)
And for a first time did some some straight line kwilting.
I also used a stencil for the center block...not to bad!
Jenny proved she can do more than just 1/4" seams!

Here is the fun backing - Noteworthy notes in full view

 I love the green and white stripe for the binding.

I have lots more Noteworthy so wonder what will be next?

Another 3Qtr Finish, another Kwilty Pleasure
just listed my Etsy Shop!

Friday Linky Parties on the side bar
stop over and see what fun projects everyone is

I have a "small" project I'm linking to

The challenge theme for July is a  "small" project!
My Nested Churn Dash  (NCD) block
finishes at 24" x 24" - small enuf!

Here it is on my design wall 
using TYPE fabrics from Windham 
and a few scraps from my stash.

Building it out

and the final round on the design wall
at 24" x 24"

I kwilted using straight lines with gray thread
following the churn in each nested section 
angling on the corners

Backing is a muddled gray and white
and if you look closely you can see the kwilting design.

 Binding is a black and gray geometric print.
It's ready for a place in my sewing room.

 I can also check another project off for  

Head over and see the what fun projects 
come in small packages!
