52 Charity Quilts in 52 Weeks - February

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

February was packed full of quilty goodness! I got my box of Island Batik Ambassador fabrics, I made four Galentine mug rugs for my gal pals, I made a Valentine mini quilt, I made three mini Zest quilts, I wrote the Zest pattern, I made three quilted luggage tags for a custom order, and I made a secret quilt that will be in an upcoming issue of Quilty magazine! But you know what I didn't make? A single charity quilt.

Zest - a new quilt pattern!

This week's Project Quilting theme was "Mellow Yellow." My schedule has been so hectic this year, I haven't been able to participate in any of the challenges yet, but this one came at the perfect time! This week's to-do list included "make Zest pattern cover quilts and write pattern." Just the motivation I needed to get that crossed off!

It's a great day to share some mini quilt love!

The second Island Batik Ambassador project for the year was to make a mini quilt. When I started my Galentine mug rugs, I was already thinking ahead to what I wanted to make for my mini quilt too!

Galentine's Day? Yes! Haven't you heard? It's the day before Valentine's Day - when you celebrate the friendships of your gal pals!

Have you ever thought about making the world a better place? Like, genuinely thought about how the world will get better than it is today? Then thought about how YOU can change the world?

Well, I decided I wanted to put some action behind my lofty goals of changing the world. So I decided to set a goal for 2018: 52 charity quilts in 52 weeks.

My name is Laura Ashley. My mom named me after a sewing pattern that she saw around the time I was born - in the 1980s.

So when I saw that Camelot Fabrics was hosting a challenge using their new Laura Ashley brand fabric, I had to participate!
