100 Quilts for kids wrap up

Oh boy, it's been a month of wild sewing.  Seven completed quilt tops which will be donated to the McHenry County chapter of Project Linus.  Twenty pillowcases for Conkerr Cancer.  Hopefully these will bring some sweet dreams to the recipients.  The last finished quilt was the modern log cabin.  I used my basket of strings on this one.  Didn't matter what size, we just kept going round and round until the string was used up, then started a new one.  We kept doing rounds until we had 9.5 in blocks.   Fun fast and super sweet.  I still have 9 blocks left over that I wanted to turn into a quilt, but I just ran out of time.  I think the numbers are awesome and I had some wonderful helpers this year.  Can't wait for next year.
Modern Log cabin, all over stipple, glide on top, magna glide bobbin, hobbs 80/20 batting - even kitty wants to help
nice cherry backing
And with binding - one went to project linus one went n the shop.  These were my favorite of the bunch
Here they are all together, some big ones, some for boys, some for girls, a medium and some little ones.

Love the low volume star next to the high volume star
I even worked on something not related to Project Linus - finished up this one for the shop.  I still have two kits cut up of the boy and girl version of this but just didn't have time to get them.  They'll have to keep until next year.
Pretty in Pink Tumbler - panto is Dew Drops - Patricia Ritter, Hobbs Polydown batting, Glide thread on top, magna glide bobbins
