I was this close to finishing my bright, colorful + and x quilt but then I went off in a different direction.  UGH!  I'm SO easily distracted.  However, I was distracted by a few donation quilts I need to get done.  I went to quilting up at my church last week and our fearless leader always tries to sedt us home with homework.  I already had some stuff here but did bring home another rag quilt kit to add to the one here.  I also had a QOV that I planned on putting together. 

 The last time I contacted the state coordinator for HOB quilts, she asked that the quilts I was ready to send be the last as the program was winding down.  Now, that is a VERY good thing..so glad the need is no longer there.  However, we still have lots of civil war repro fabric in our closet and had lots of blocks cut.  SO I decided to set them 4X5 with a border to make them large enough for QOV.  This is the first of three I'll be putting together and will wait til next church group to cut and attach a border.  We have a great longarmer that graciously quilts all of our donation quilts--isn't that AWESOME?!!
This is the first of two rag quilts I'm working on.  The stitching is completed on this one but of course needs to be clipped.  It's cold and rainy today so will try to get that all done this evening.  Then hopefully in the next few days I'll get back to my + and x quilt (although I DO think I found a couple of 'mushy' blocks--OH NO!).  Including replacements for the 'mushys', I'll have 6 more blocks to finish up then put the rows together into a flimsy.
