Quilt Blocks, Quilts and a Quilt for Cancer

It has been such a busy last month-and-a-half, but things have finally slowed down a bit, and I managed to tackle some quilting projects again.  Oh, the therapy of quilting!!  :)

First up... the June quilt blocks for Traditional Pastimes' "Freebie 15" BOM:
Freebie 15 Companion: "Bird Tracks"
I really buggered this one up, and it's too small, but I was not about to redo these flying geese!
Usually, I enjoy the flying geese units, but for some reason, I just wasn't getting these instructions!  :(

Freebie 15: "Low Tide"

Remember this quilt top?  This was the quilt top I made for the Fat Quarters Stars Quilt Along that finished up a few months ago.  Well, it sat and sat and sat on my sewing table.  The greeny-yellow was driving me mad... so I HACKED it all apart!  Yeah!!

Now I have 12 blocks that will need to be resewn... MINUS the pukey green-yellow!  :)

Be-Gone, Pukey sashing!!

There there is this big quilt... from about 1 year ago... Moose on the Porch's Layer Cake Quilt Along.  I FINALLY did some repairs, and my church quilting club friend Dalene quilted it together for me.  It was the first quilt she has done in which blocks were set on-point, but I think she did a purty nice job on this quilt!  This quilt is looking lovely on our guest bed.


A few months ago, I signed up for Heather Spence's Spring 2012 Mystery Quilt.
Well, I am finally done!

My friend Dalene did an amazing job with the quilting on her long-arm machine!
I absolutely love this quilt!

This quilt is going to be raffled off this autumn and all donations will go toward Breast Cancer.  I haven't determined yet how I will raffle it off or which cancer association/foundation the proceeds will go toward, but it WILL be donated!

I hope to raise money for breast cancer, and one lucky person will WIN this quilt!

The reason for this quilt donation?
My Mom has been diagnosed with breast cancer, and today is her first day of radiation.

This is for you, Mama!

52" x 63"

Stay tuned for information on how to win this "breast cancer" quilt!!
