OMG for May is finished

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!




  1. Super cute baby quilts for H2H! Congrats on finishing your OMG! for May.

    1. -- from Kathy S. -- because I can't figure out how to get the drop down button for Anonymous to work and post as myself. LOL

  2. Both Baby quilts are lovely, and I'm happy that the stain will not remain. Pretty little pouches too, and for a great cause.
    Thank you for sharing, and linking up ;)

  3. Dye migration is always a concern. I have read several remedies on line. Luckily have never had to try one. I love that block. Simple but with a "twist".. Too cute!

  4. Who wouldn't love these baby quilts?! They are terrific and glad you loved the bleeding problem. Also like the cute purse.

  5. The texture on the baby quilts is a lovely addition. Thank you for linking up with me for TGIFF.
