More Charity Quiltin'

My quilty friends and I only have about 10-12 more blocks to make for the girl's charity quilt.  Then we can assemble the rows together and get it into tip "top" shape.  :o)  Last week we were at Kathie's house and left the blocks and foundation paper pieces there as she was going to finish up the couple we had in progress when we had to leave at 5pm so she could get to an appointment.  

I only printed enough foundation pieces to make the top so we would know when we had enough; and since they are all at Kathie's, I decided to play with the boy's charity quilt we are planning to make also.  I got four quadrants done and this goes together so much faster than the girl's does.  I posted it onto Facebook to see how the gals liked it and it is a thumbs-up.  So, we will use the constant bright yellow in the center (star shape) and strings that read blue or green for each side.  Once we lay them all together block after block, the strings will form a spiderweb shape.  I think it will look awesome!  It's a bit brighter than the picture reflects.  So, what do you think?

I'm pretty sure we'll be able to finish the remaining girl's quilt blocks this Wednesday and maybe even start sewing rows together.  Woohoo!  I'll post a pic of our progress on that quilt either Wednesday nite or Thursday.

Chuggin' along,
