Little Lambs quilt and whispers of PPPP in the wind.....

Ok so 3 posts in one month is a charm??

 I finished one of my donations for Hands2Help and am working on the second.......
I had a little Bears Alphabet panel and decided to just cut out each square and add some thin sashing around the squares.  Little Lambs, where I will send this, is asking for only small quilts...36" to 42", hence the very thin sashing....(you can click on the Little Lambs link above to read about their wonderful and worthwhile foundation)
  





For quilting I just used a running stitch across each square in a simple "x" pattern...and I did a "cheater" binding by just folding over the backing.....(I'm getting better at regular binding but sometimes I still run away from it and do it this way instead....)  
 


On another subject.....I've been wondering if maybe it's time to revive the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade?  My family who helped me in the past says it's time for another and I think maybe it is......what do you think?  Since we are all staying in maybe we could gather up our pincushions and share them in the PPPP 2020!

You are on a roll...love the X's....makes easy work of it. Love the panel. I have a ton of panels, maybe I should do this as well.

The Alphabet blocks with a small sashing looks great and great idea to cross hatch and then fold over the backing.. Quick and easy..
Hmm! dont think Ive added to my pincushions since we last did the parade???

I'm sad to say I've never heard of the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade. Do tell more.

I have loved making a number of panel quilts.

Your panel quilt is very nice, I do like it. But how does the PPPP work?

Sashings are a great way to perk up little blocks. Some child will delight in this fun quilt.

That turned out so cute and will be loved by someone special.

I'll have to scrounge around to see if I can come up with some new pincushions for the parade, but first I will need to get back to blogging! lol

I'm not quite sure how the PPP works but I think it's a virtual parade?? If it is, I'd play for sure.

Sounds great to do the PPP again this year. Is it just one pin cushion you have to make?
