To the right is what is becoming my Leader-Ender project. Wanda had shown a project from African fabrics a few weeks ago, and I wrote to ask if she wanted to get right of her scraps -- I'd like to buy them. She sent a bulging parcel and when I showed them to the Usual Suspects on Saturday, I thought they might stage a hold up right then and there!
I serve on the SWAT Team at my church -- we have committed to raising $25,000 over three years as part of the campaign to provide mosquito nets for two villages in Uganda, part of a much larger effort to eradicate malaria worldwide. I offered to make a relevant quilt to raffle.I have only begun cutting, but my project is going to be similar to this one of Linda's, using black where she shows tangerine.
My coworker Gabrielle wears these things all the time -- I swear she makes one each morning when she gets dressed! They are as easy as she said they would be, and there are many different free patterns for them; just Google "infinity scarf." Many are made from voile and, I tell you, as soon as I can get some of that, production will continue!
So, apparently I've developed MQP. And I haven't even shown you the center I made from CW fabrics as a part of Lori's current quiltalong, Abundance! This is my second quiltalong with her. If you have been thinking of participating in one, have a look. She breaks the project down into sensible units and provides clear directions and warm encouragement! I started doing Lori's quiltalongs because I wanted to explore small-size quilts.
