Charity Quilts 22, 23, 24, 25 & 26 of 52 πŸ’

I'm making 52 quilts in 2018 for Jack's Basket, where babies with Down syndrome are celebrated. I went through my calendar and numbered all 52 of the Saturdays in 2018. Since June has 5 Saturdays, I finished 5 quilts this month.

We went on a road trip to California this month. While staying at my DH's childhood home, I pieced 11 baby quilt tops on this Singer 201 that was his grandmother's sewing machine, manufactured in March of 1950. With a lot of oil (there must've been 30 oil spots in the manual!?!), it sewed like a champ!

Road Trip πŸš™ Stitching ✂️ 2018

We went on a road trip to California and back earlier this month. Here are a few stitching and other highlights.

This was my main passenger project. I stitched it from a pattern I got at one of our local quilt shops, Eagle Creek Quilt Shop. It didn't come with a color key so I had to wing it. I was going for the rainbow look:

I also crocheted 10 of these hanging kitchen towels. Two were gifted before I could take a photo. I buy the towels at Costco in a bundle of 10, crochet across the first row using an awl, steel crochet hook and crochet cotton, then crochet the topper with worsted weight yarn:

You Are My Sunshine 🌞

My quiltin' cousin, Sue, made this wonderful quilt for her son! 

The pattern is "You Are My Sunshine" from the booklet, Slice of Home by Creekside Stitches. It's a layer cake friendly pattern, or you can cut from stash like Sue did. Here's a close-up:

June Minikins Challenge ✅

Sara at Sew Sweetness is having a different challenge each month with her Minikins patterns. The Minikins are 12 patterns of small bags, with step-by-step videos, that are fun to make, use and give as gifts.

The Minikins challenge for June is the Zeppelin Pouch, a bag that can be used as a cosmetic bag, shaving bag, toiletry bag, or just about anything you might want in a bag! I made two of them:

I made my first one out of this Tula Pink's All-Stars print:
