Scrap user quilts

At our sewing day at the library a guild member gave me a copy of a pattern. It uses 2 1/2 strips. You keep the center strip consistent through the quilt. I made this one quite quickly from all my bright strips. I used the leftovers for a piano key border. It was fun and easy. It will go to our local hospital to cheer up a child.
I can see more of these in my future.

Kids quilts from library sewing day.

Friends from my guild and I sew once a month at our local public library. I always have pre cut kits made up of children's quilt patterns. I had one half done one month an was able to finish it up. I also got another one just about done. Quilting these are a breeze on my Handiquilter. These will go to our local hospital.

Eagels from Julia

I got confused with what blocks I put on what This one used the Disappearing 9 patch from Debbie. This has another panel and more of the churn dash blocks. I am almost out of them. This one turned out quite big.
Blocks already made and panels make these quilts go quite quickly. I try to stay off the internet and not watch too much TV for more quilting time.

Statue Of Liberty

My friend Julia sent me a bunch of wonderful patriotic panels. Debbie sent me some BIG 9 patch which I cut apart into disappearing 9 patch. The Church Dash blocks are from our exchange. The little corner blocks are from Vicky. The borders and binding are from fabric from Meg and Char. The putting it all together into a quilt for our military was ME.
What a wonderful joint project. This will go to Afghanistan.

For Our Military

A group of friends did a block exchange using the church dash. I decided I would incorporate them into a Quilt Of Valor. I had them sign the center of each block. I found this wonderful panel in my local quilt shop and bought several. I have enough for a couple of these quilts.
Here is a little closer look.

Camp Quilt Completed

I took a string quilt class on Sunday at camp. I picked all bright strips to use for this quilt. It was VERY easy and fun to make. This will be donated to our local hospital for the children. The blocks were 6 1/2. I am currently working on another with brights. These blocks will be 8 1/2 and put into a different setting. I use phone book pages for the foundation.
I love the binding fabric and bought it at my local quilt shop on sale.
