Red and Pink


My sewing room is full of red and pink scraps today.

The red scraps are for Blockapalooza day for the 70273 Project. To read my blog post from yesterday for more information, click here.
As project captain Jeanne says: "a big Thank You to y'all for helping us remind and/or convince the world that Every life has value. Every. Single. Life."
I'm turning my red scraps into a "Middling" for the 70,273 project. What's a "Middling" you ask? It's a miniature quilt measuring 18" x 22". I only have two blocks started so far.

The pink blocks are part of my Alamo Star collection that I have been working on for 5 years. Yoday I am sewing the pink stars together into 4 patch blocks.

  3. I'll be joining you in making 70273 blocks. Not sure how many I'll be able to make, it will depend on how much white fabric I have left. We'll see if I have enough blocks to make a Middling. We'll quilt together, sort of.

  5. You know I love the Alamo Stars!
    Yesterday's post inspired me to get going on my blocks for the 70273 project. They probably won't happen until late October, but they are definitely going to happen! Thanks for the nudge.

  10. I got so distracted by the 70,273 project I've had to come back to see what you've been doing! I seem to think I read about the project shortly after its' inception (possibly here). Don't think I ever acted however, and it's a cause I wholeheartedly support. Will be stitching red X's very soon. Thanks for the head's up!
