I'm doing pretty well on my 1-Hour challenge. (These aren't ironed yet.) I hesitated to post my picture because everyone is using such pretty fabric. I went one step further and am using scraps. I found 144 HST's, almost the right size. Dilema...do I use these even if they are fairly plain? Or cut into my pretty stash, gulp! I opted to preserve my stash a little bit longer and use those scraps up, I mean it was a sign that they were the right size, wasn't it? So, mine aren't as pretty as everyone else's, but someone will love it. I don't know how long this 1 Hour Challenge is going to last, but I plan on making that my Charity Hour. That way I'll be sure to get things done for charity. I do plan on using "prettys" too for charity. I don't want think people to think I'm just giving away all the uglies. But I'm halfway done with the blocks. I'm doing the 24 block quilt.
On the Take the Leap Challenge by Tonya, I haven't started making mine yet. But I will. And I plan on using my X's and O's for a Breast Cancer charity quilt. My Quilt Studio is one of the locations that will be participating in Quilt Pink Day and I plan on using these in all pinks/whites for that quilt. It's not until Sept. 30.
