When Dorothy Met Linus

Action Shot!

We had some really great Show & Tell at The Linus Connection meeting today, which you can see in this post on the Linus blog. It’s entirely possible you might recognize the writing style. 😉

Since I take the pictures at Show & Tell, I rarely actually Show.  Today, I donated the Wizard of Oz quilt I’ve been working on and really wanted to share it with the group before it headed off to it’s final destination; one of the facilities getting blankets in the hands of children affected by the Central Texas fires.

The fabrics were donated to Linus as sales samples, then the tumbler blocks were cut out at the last meeting on an AccuQuilt.

I stitched the top, added an emerald city sparkly border, quilted it on the Linus long-arm (I’m still a novice, but it sure is fun!) and bound it.

You can see the colors better in this one.

Also a Linus Sideways Shell. I’m sort of embarrassed to admit that I started this in June. When I ran out of yarn, it sat until I bought two skeins yesterday morning and finished it last night.

Stars For Linus continue to come in! Keep them coming and we’ll have a quilt to show here soon!

      You know it’s my pleasure. I feel like if each person in this world did just one thing for someone else every day, or even just once a week, the world would be a much better and nicer place for it. 🙂
