Design Wall Monday - Hands 2 Help Challenge

Oy! April may go down as the month where allergies knocked me out.  Not much sewing going on here, so I have a lot of catching up to do!

On my design wall today are these Greek Cross blocks that I had cut out along time ago using pink scraps.  I think this will be a 4X4 layout, so I have a few more to make.

This quilt will be a part of the Hands 2 Help Challenge.  Its not to late to join in.  

Also, last time I missed out on the #mypreciousQAL so I wanted to make sure I joined in this time. The goal is to be encouraged to use some of your precious or hoarded fabric.  I was just thinking lately that I needed to use my Cotton & Steel fabric before it became precious stash.

I couldn't quite figure out what to use, Tula stash or my precious Architextures (current fave!), but decided that it was time that Echo came out to play.  Echo may be the first fabric line that I saw as a preview and thought, I need to have that!

Yup, now that I said it, I've got to use it - right.  I guess I'll have to finally unwrap that jelly roll.  Not sure of a pattern yet, thinking something improv.

This week's goals:
  • My second Sew Together Bag as a gift.  My instructions were pink & yellow, bold, and throw some green in it.  Um, OK?  (Does this person not realize I have been destashing all my pinks!)
  • Little Island Quilting has run out of blocks for the Soy Amado project.  I guess I have to mail my box of blocks thats been sitting here.
  • My April goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes was another scrappy house quilt for the Hands 2 Help Challenge.  Just needs the binding to be finished.

This should keep me busy for a bit.  Goals are always good, but I can get sidetracked easily with all the quilty goodness in blogland and Instagram.
