Charity Quilting

I think I found my new favorite quilting motif for charity quilts. This swirl design is great! Quilt pieced by another member of Annapolis Quilts for Kids
This one I chose a fun meander that says "meow" throughout. Perfect for this cute cat quilt.

100 Blocks 100 Days

And that makes 100 blocks. This was wonderful adventure. Now I get to play with block placement until I get something that works. I have no idea how it will all come together. 

If you are on the fence about trying out this pattern you can check out the great images folks are sharing on Instagram under #100days100blocks2021. Finished quilts are now showing up so you can see how people are putting these blocks together.

Knitting Rainbows

I finally finished my little poncho. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. Maybe after I mend in the ends and block it I will.
