THE LAST OF THE SCRAP BIN?

I think at least for the time being I can finish up the last guy charity quilt requests and I've finished up two charity quilt tops this past week and now I can get back to doing a couple of fun things for myself.  
Early last week I finished up this quilt top.  I'm not crazy about it, but Warm Wrappings my guild's charity division appreciates even this not so award winning top.
This one was a little hard to bundle up for Warm Wrappings.  It was all 3.5 inch squares out of my scrap bins, but it really is pretty.
These prints are a third guy quilt that Warm Wrappings put out a SOS for guy quilts.  They are hard to come by as so often quilts are more feminine.
So two rows have been completed with 14 blocks that measure finished at 4 by 7 inches.  I hope to have the quilt finished at 56 by 63 inches.
Time to pull out my favorite Valentine's table runner.  I made it so many years ago, but fall in love with it again and again every year when I pull it out of the closet.  
This is what I have in mind to make for myself this week.  I purchased Aneela Hoey's book Stitched Sewing Organizers this past week and intend to do some fun project for myself out of it.  It is full of some really fun ideas.

  1. You've gotten so much done over the last week or so. I tend to make more boy baby quilts than girls -- more boys have neonatal stays than girls. Every once in a while I just want to make something sweet and girlish. I like your trip around the world and the framed rectangles quilt. Good for you to make these for charity. Hope you have a productive week.

  2. I see why you fall in love with our Valentine's Table Runner every year ... it's beautiful! Nice to hear your guild makes "guy" quilts too. Even little boy quilts are harder to find then pretty pink ones! Have a good week!

  3. You've accomplished so much! Not all quilts have to be award-winners. If they did, I would have very few quilts. Looking forward to seeing your sewing organizer soon. Thanks for linking up to What I Made Monday!
