I've spent lots of time this week thinking of the families that lost everything from the tornado damage. Judy L is collecting money for the Red Cross and quilts to be distributed to some of the victims in Joplin. Go here to see how you can help.
I am making this quilt to send. This is my favorite quilt in Scrap-Basket Sensations called Island Chain. I pulled open the 2 1/2" strip bin and started pulling out strips. Wednesday at quilt group, I spend the morning cutting the color strips for 2 quilts. Thursday I cut the background and this weekend I sewed.
I always copy from the book so I can have my copy right at the machine and with this quilt, I needed a picture right on the design wall. This is the original layout and after looking at it for a while, I decided to leave it just as it is. Then it was time to sew the twosies together....I needed more help putting them back up on the wall.
Thank goodness for digital cameras and printers! I printed off this picture so my twosies would be in the right places. I've started sewing the rows together and hope to have this one off to Judy L. in the next few days.
