2014 NewFO Challenge - August

I really liked Bonnie Hunter's Carolina Chain block that was her Addicted To Scraps block in the Quiltmaker Magazine May/June 2010.  I decided to start making these blocks with my 2" strips.  I've gotten a couple blocks made and I'm happy with them.  So, I'm kitting up more of the blocks to use for my Leader/Ender.

I am hoping that I can get a lap quilt made with theses before winter gets here.  I love to cover up with a quilt when watching television in the evening.  You can visit Barbara over at Cat Patches to see what others have started this month for their NewFO Challenge. 

I have finished my Quilt Doodle Block of the Month for August which is 10 pieces of candy!  I used a red striped fabric to try to imitate the peppermint candies that my husband likes to carry in his pocket.  We only have two more blocks to go.  All of the Quilt Doodles blocks can be seen here.   

Happy quilting everyone!  Tami


  1. Looking forward to seeing your Carolina Chain! I love scrap quilts. ~Jeanne

  2. I love scrappy quilts, too, and have enjoyed watching you do the Doodles. :)

  3. Love your row of candy, the striped fabric is wonderful!

  4. I can't wait to see that lap quilt take shape!

  5. These blocks tempted me too but my stack of things to sew is so high...I am saying no for now. I'll live vicariously through you!!
