do.Good Stitches Rainbows


another long overdue project finished up!  Each person in our charity quilting group sent
 me two rainbow stripe blocks.  These blocks sat in the cupboard for a long time, and 
when I pulled them out, I knew I wanted to put them together with white sashing between. 


Adding borders and sashing meant that I had four extra blocks, so I took out the four 
lightest blocks and made a baby quilt out of them. 


Then, a few days after completing those two quilts, I happened to be looking in my cupboard again,
 and realized that I'd missed four more blocks!  So I made another one.  Feels kind of good to 
have three quilts to send off to My Very Own Blanket.  And it's helping me use up my stash!
