Week 44: 30 October - 5 November

By the end of this week, we've hit November! Whoo hoo!! We're doing great. This week, how's about we do a theme of our favorite book. I love reading, so this should be a real challenge. I've got over 150 books on my Kindle. Most of them were free reads - I just love classic books!

So, this weeks challenge is to think of a book that you love (or your favorite, or one that you think would look awesome in a miniature quilt form) and make it into a miniature quilt!

When you're done, post a link to your completed quilt top, or finished quilt and share!! I'd love to see what you've done!

4Patches4Hope - Make a 4 Patch, Make a Difference

I just read about this new initiative in Blogland, and started to cry. I've lost a lot of family members to Cancer, and I know so many strong women and men fighting every day.

All the initiative is asking for is to make a 4 patch. Each 4Patch will measure 4.5" unfinished (so 2.5" squares). We can use any 2 dark colors - that represent cancers colors - and 2 light squares.

If you'd like to contribute please feel free to read further here at 4Patches4Hope

And here is a list of the colors used for each different type of cancer from

Week 43: October 23-29

Uh oh! I'm starting to run out of ideas for this weekly challenge! I'm sure that I've got a ton of ideas, just need some more time to write them all down in my journal.

My daughter came up with this weeks theme of BUBBLES. I'm constantly amused by her playing with her bubbles outside.

Here are some links if you want to quilt in bubbles!
