Blossom Heart Quilts, May 10


I chose green for my Diagonal block this May, because it is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color.  I had some beautiful green prints from Barbara Brackman's William Morris Jewels collection.  Since it is a floral I also chose a lime green tone on tone floral to give a springtime effect.

Yesterday our Monona Quilters group of about 50 members here in WI  held our semiannual charity quilt collection.  A total of 172 quilts of all sizes were collected for local charities such as Project Linus, a local veterans group, homeless transition housing and others.  Here are the quilts before we posed with them for photos.

I'm very proud to be a member of this active and generous group which meets weekly for show and tell.  They give a lot of encouragement and support to all the members.   We also have a giveaway table after the meeting where we can find many goodies and many of these reject fabrics are turned into lovely charity quilts.
