100 posts - giveaway to come!

I just realized that my previous post was my 100th! I guess that calls for a celebration of sorts, and what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway. That seems to be the way things go in blogland - which, by the way, I love...people are so nice, generous and thoughtful. I'm going to be getting something or things ready to go for a giveaway next week, so check back!

Oddball Blankets

Here are some pictures of some of the West Coast Oddball Baby Blankets I've contributed to recently (my sections are the top in each blanket). You can go to the blog link above to see pictures of these adorable blankets as they progress. The blankets are donated to various hospitals in the region for children who may not otherwise get such a great blanket. Some of them are for premies so they are smaller in size.

(Pinkalicious baby blanket that I finished - there are 6 sections per blanket and I did the last section, they then get a nice border added by another person)

(Banana Split is a premie blanket that I started. There haven't been anymore pictures of it posted, but I'm excited to see what it looks like now!)

(Olympic Rings is being done in all the colors of the olympic rings...makes sense, right? :) I had to redo the yellow section for another knitter and was assigned the black section, so I did that as well.)

(Easter Egg was fun! The first knitter, who used the variegated yarn, sent it along with the blanket so in my section I used a yellow that I had, the variegated and a green that I had. I figured it could use more stripes and colors because of its name.)

Oops - April's Blocks for Izzy

Forgot to post these fun blocks Izzy requested for her blocks that we turned in last weekend for our quilt group!

Kelsey's Block for May

We met for quilt group on Saturday and Kelsey gave us the fabric and instructions for her blocks due next month. Here's my block that I finished yesterday:

She has people making other color schemed blocks as well; yellow and red are the only ones I can think of. She'll also be adding handles of rickrack to the baskets. It was a fun block to make, and they're so cute! I just have to add (embroider) my initials to my block now.
