Some quick quilts

I have been piecing alot lately and decided I better get these into quilts. Quilting is my least favorite part. It helps that I have a Handiquilter and but still love sewing them much better.
The third quilts is a pattern called Hot Flashes. I really liked making it and can see more of these in my future. It was quite easy using strips and one triangle in the corner.

Blue and Yellow Quilt For Hospice

When I first discovered real quilting fabric, I fell in love with blue and yellow. I bought quite a bit and am slowly using it up. A guild friend gave me more just before I moved away. I love this pattern and made the top at a quilting retreat with my Phoenix Guild called Night Owls. I think this will be donated to a local Hospice of the Valley here.

In Honor of a Friends Mom

I am a member of an online quilting community. We are from all over the country and have met many times is person. One members Mom recently passed and had used Hospice. I support this organization with quilts and decided to make one in her honor. I will donate it to a local group. Her favorite colors were mauve and green. My group sent enough fabric to make this one and probably another. A little of the Mom's stash was in this quilt. I made another of this pattern using a Moda Layer Cake. I will hold onto this until a need arises when I will need a completed quilt in a hurry.
