A local nursing home requested some lap quilts from our quilt ministry group, and so that has been our focus over the past month or so. This is the fourth "opportunity quilt" for the reverse side of that 17 in 2017 list of projects, and my one and only finish for April.
This is the third quilt I've finished using those infamous phone book pages for the strippy block foundations, and it will be my last. Too many hours spent tearing off paper when I could be sewing ... Someone had the idea of trying used dryer sheets as foundations that would not require removal. I'm thinking of trying that method, and wonder if anyone has made strippy blocks using these? Seems like as long as they don't fall apart in the laundry they might work well since they're dimensionally stable and very thin.
I'll be making more nursing home quilts toward fall, but for the next few weeks will be working on a much larger project that includes a whole lot of scrappy nine-patch blocks, about 50 or so ... Yet another opportunity.
So happy that spring has finally arrived and with it the fun of some outdoor quilty photos in the early morning mist.
