H2H May Update

Living in Australia has made receiving the fabrics from my gorgeous partner Ann, a little longer than all the other lovely participants for the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge, however no matter - they are here now, arriving two or three weeks ago (my memory escapes me atm).  And they are BEAUTIFUL!!  One of my favourite colours is purple - crazy, eh?!  *giggle* 

Unfortunately, the last few weeks have been kind of crazy in regards to 'things that must be done', with my last drawings for my uni course to be finished in the next few days (aren't extensions great when you are really having a major meltdown about your own inabilities?!!), so I haven't been able to get onto this quilt yet - Thank-you Lord that I have another 6 weeks to get this finished (taking into consideration enough postage time to get to Judi in America).  

I have another three drawings to do as of 'right now', plus a finish of another and a 500-word written assignment detailing how I feel my drawing has developed over the course of the unit; so I am hoping to get onto this in the next week-or-so in amongst making a whole bunch of stuff for my daughter (turns 3 in 2.5weeks!) and a number of quilt blocks I need to make for swaps (priority #1 after these drawings).

Anyway, I'm a little unsure yet of what exactly I'm going to do with this quilt.  I'm thinking maybe either 

a) a sudoku-style top with 5in blocks of colours with 1in strips between each square and a border;

b) a top made up of 4 x 4 'prickly pear' blocks; or

c) some kind of star-blocks.

Any ideas or suggestions?

**I am linking this post up with Sarah's linky-post for this months' update.  Pop over to check out what the other participants have been up to - quite a few have finished either the quilt tops or the entire quilt - a few are even on a second or third!  Amazing women!!

A sudoku would be pretty. I don't know what a prickly pear block is so maybe that one so I can see what that looks like. Very pretty shades of purple.

I love making a sudoku top - we make a lot of them in the quilt ministry because they are so easy to kit up, and you don't have to stress over which fabrics can "touch"! But I'm sure anything you make with that fabric will be beautiful!!

Purple is my favorite color, too. Those fabrics are gorgeous and I think they would make a GREAT sudoku quilt.

With those colors anything will be beautiful.
