- Work on my Storm at Sea quilt project. √Done
This past week I finished my quilt top for the Positivity Sew Along hosted by Sew Preeti Quilts and Needle and Thread. I used Alison Glass Kaleidoscope fabrics with a Charcoal background which can look like two different fabrics depending upon whether it was cut straight grain or cross grain. I randomly rotated the squares and rectangles of the Charcoal fabric to give the background more interest and texture. The pluses are Cobalt, Turtle, Tiger, Pencil, Hope, and Mermaid Kaleidoscope fabrics. I’m very happy to be able to give another Mercyful quilt to the Palliative Care Unit at Mercy Hospital in Sacramento, California. The dedicated personnel in this unit coordinate giving quilts to their terminally ill patients to bring some measure of comfort to the person and their family as they go through the difficult process of dying. The family then keeps the quilt in the memory of the person who passed away.
Here are my two Thistle blocks for my modified Fancy Forest quilt that I am making as part of the Quilted Connections 1st Annual Spectacular Summer Sew-Along.
I finished making all the units for my Storm at Sea project and have started sewing the units together. I hope to share a pic of the completed quilt top next week.

- Make a Fancy Forest Hazel Hedgehog block.
