Frost Fest is a annual event here in my little Town and we try very hard to make it better than previous years, this year being no exception. Not only did I donate Strawberry Fields, but I managed to make three fabric Checkers Games which were given as a silent auction item and two were given as prizes in the annual winter scavenger hunt.
This years quilt Strawberry Fields
It ended up 50" X 50" a good lap sized quilt. Into the Silent Auction it went and what it finally sold for I do not know, but it was a donation so I do hope if fetched a few scheckles for the cause.
I also managed to make three sets of Fabric checker games with plaster of paris checker game pieces which I made and painted to match the fabric colors.
In addition to the other events going on during Frost Fest, my Lions Club Members sponsored a Winter charity ATV Poker Run. Our club raised $200.00 on the Saturday morning and this amount went directly to the Food Bank.
After tidying up the sewing area it was time to start another project. I began to put together Cindy Carter's Scrappy Hearts Blocks which block is fantastic and a great way to showcase the scraps and the bits of clothing from my friends mothers who passes away a year ago this past February.
In addition to the hearts I printed out lots and lots of 1.5" hexagons and spend my evenings with these, I have set my goal for at least 1,000 but who knows, conceivably I could need more. I am enjoying the tiny pieces and will keep searching for just the right pattern to use them in. Since my sons' marriage this past December, I have acquired two grandchildren, so, the tiny hexies should really be used in a quilt for my granddaughter who is not only adept at drawing and color but at her tender age of 7 has very good taste. Here are a few that I have - so far I have made over 100+ guess I have alot more to do just to reach the 1,000.
Thanks for stopping by, maybe by the time you make a return visit I won't read like such a scatterbrain.
