Last one for a bit

And the final pair of table mats.

Both are orphan blocks from the Twilight quilt, one from the central panel and one from the border. Both just didn’t work because they were too bright for their context, but luckily they’re about to have a new career as table mats!  They’re backed with more of the purply-teal you saw on the last pair, and both are bound with scraps, which is why both sets of bindings are half-and-half in different fabrics.

Tomorrow I’m delivering the whole stack of recent work to Days for Girls, and letting them know I’m taking a bit of a break because I now have to concentrate on finishing Tyger and making a start on blocks for the latest Ovarian Cancer quilt, Can You Teal the Love. There’ll be some bags in the not too distant future, but other work has to take priority for now.

I’ve enjoyed making quite a big dent in some of my scraps, but it’s time for even bigger things!

    I don’t know how you manage to be so productive! And so much of it for good causes. You are amazing!

    So lovely !!

  4. I sympathise with working through a commitment while having an unfinished project – I’m just finishing a “side project” that sort of took over my life…Wonderful mats, and wonderful to get them done and delivered!

  5. Time to make some more scraps 😍

    These will be such great prizes. I wish I could do the same! I’m a member of the management committee of a local neighbourhood centre which is fundraising with raffles, and I’m struggling to come up with ideas of things I could donate.

    If only Shinee could be relied on to pay attention to people, we could raffle off some time with her!

      Maybe you could raffle 5 minutes stroking her ears…. would she hold still for that?

        Only if she feels like it! On a walk, nup, important bidness to do. When sleeping, maybe, if it is not annoying (cue baleful stare which would turn the stroker to remorseful stone).
