The OMG for May is to make 2 baby quilts for the Hands2Help project and I'm very happy to say that I'm done with them. Here are the pictures.
I had a little problem with the dark red/blue fabric. Even though I washed them with color catchers, the colors ran and stained the white noodles with red. I was worried and took a break to think how I would solve the problem. Two days later, I came up with an idea; I misted the area with water and used Q-tips dipped in diluted bleach+water to clean it up. Then I rewashed them and the red is gone from the white noodles! Phew...
The design is based on the pattern called 'Noodles' from Leanne Parsons at DevotedQuilter.com, (non affiliate link). I think they came out really cute.
I also finished a purse for the Sewpowerful.org which is a global movement to keep girls in school all month and equip African women with good paying jobs.
The purse is really fun to make. I think I'll make a few more for them.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great sewing week!
