Time has been getting away from me and I have been absent from here both in writing and reading.
I miss both so much. I feel out of the loop.
Special occasions require hair stylists to work a little overtime and between proms, graduations, and mother's day, May was quite busy.
I've been working out of town on weekends (tis wedding season)
and I'm afraid my blogging has suffered. I only have one more wedding this summer and I will be ready for "normal" to return.
In the meanwhile
Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict
Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.
is my contribution for 2015.
(The wheat looks happy this year. This photo is out in front of our house.)
This reverse rainbow star burst quilt was made from 5" charms I've been cutting for my scrap organization. I used Kat's tutorial over at diary of a Flutter.Kat as the inspiration for the blocks.
Star Spectrum is 54" x 54"
Because I am so close to the deadline for the finish, free motion quilting in a meandering pattern was the quickest way to go. I used Auriful thread 50wt #2615.
Star Spectrum will be donated to Happy Chemo, an orgnization that provides quilts and comfort for chemo patients. Emily of Em's Scrapbag has been collecting quilts for this cause for awhile and has set a goal of providing 1500 quilts to Happy Chemo. She's already donated more than 600 quilts and the H2H quilt challenge is helping to make here numbers grow.
Happy Chemo has a great blog for Cancer patients
and you can click HERE to check it out.

Have a great weekend, It's been raining so much here that I haven't even planted my garden. Can you believe that? We had over 10 inches of rain in May (a record).
My garden hopes to be off the porch and in some dirt tomorrow.
This picture was on May 23rd and the plants had been there 3 weeks then.....
