Acres of quilts

Saturday was Project Linus Make A Blanket Day in our area. There was a big gathering about an hour from here, but in our local area, 15 of us pieced 10 tops and got 8 others underway!
Isn't this awesome? We laid all the tops of this type together, and I climbed on a chair and took this photo (doesn't show nearly all the tops!).
One corner of the layout had a top of Sesame Street and coordinated character prints. Gives a very different look.
We made another Illini (orange and blue) string quilt, and also started on one with dotted green stripes.
I am off tomorrow for California to see DD#1, my mother, my brother and sister-in-law, and two nieces and their families. Fun! I hope you all have a great week, and I'll be in touch when I return.

Project Linus is such a wonderful cause. Those are all wonderful quilts, but that top photo really caught my eye.

Enjoy that vacation...especially the time with DD and parents. Have a safe trip.

Those Linus quilts look so delectable! As a Linus rep over here in England, I wish all the quilts I got were so bright and colourful. People sometimes forget that the quilts are for children, and use up dull fabrics instead of brights!
