scrap basket quilt along link up

Welcome to the final week of the scrap basket quilt along! A HUGE thank you to all of you who are quilting along with me. If you haven't started yet, no worries. It's not too late to join in! :)

I finished my rail fence quilt last Tuesday when I had a few uninterrupted hours of sewing time. (It was such a treat!) I'm very happy with how my quilt turned out, but more importantly my boys gave it their seal of approval. Not that it's a tough sell or anything, but still, good to know!



When you are finished with your quilt, please send it to the following address:

Margaret's Hope Chest
630 Griswold SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49507

Just a few reminders....

The "deadline" is August 1, 2014 if you'd like your name thrown into the hat for prizes. One prize per every 20 quilts donated. If you are donating a boys' quilt, your name will be thrown into the hat twice. It can be any type of quilt, it doesn't need to be a rail fence quilt as shown here. If you are looking for other ideas, there are bunch on this page. Aim for a finished size of 50" x 60".

Now, it's your turn! If you are quilting along with me, I'd love to see your progress! Please link up so all of us can see your progress/finished quilt. I will leave the linky open until August 1, so even if you don't have progress to share at this time, you can still link up when you are ready.

Happy Monday to you!

I love your quilt. Love the colors, love the backing, love the binding. Some little boy is going to feel so blessed. You are such a good woman to inspire so many of us to do good.

I really love the photo in the tree. It's a great complement to your quilt which I love by the way. I think I already commented on the how well the diamond fabric works.
