Quilts for the Military

The above one is called Wicked Easy Quilt. This was made using 12 fat quarters. Very fast. I remembered to use several lights or the quilt ends up being too busy.

This was a pattern using strips that are cut 2 inches. I need to add more lights.

I found this pattern on the Quilts For Kids website---fun and easy.

This is just made out of 5 inch charms. I found this pattern on someone blog. I really enjoyed this one. It is called Disappearing Nine Patch.

Our guild is going to support making quilts for the wounded military. There are several different ways to do this and we will have a local contact come to the guild to pick them up. She distributes them at Andrews Airport. There is an average of 3 troop planes coming in each day with the wounded.

I love making more complicated quilts even for charity. I was losing interest when I made quick easy ones. Now I like to do both.

I needed to come up with some easy patterns. I searched the internet and have come up with several great ones. I cannot believe how quickly these can be made up.
