Seems like there is lots of charity sewing going on and not much me sewing! But it’s all good, since it’s for a worthy cause. Over the course of the last few months I have been starting and finishing quilts for others. What a good use of my time and a great way to hone my skills. Already out the door are the two Grandma’s Choice quilts. One to our Guild’s cause and the other to Jack’s Basket.
On the starting end of things I have started 3 more items for charity and have 1 finished.
This one came by it’s name after a few iterations. A fellow quilter called it the Potato Famine Quilt. Then another guild member suggested The Potato Salad Quilt, since Famine was such a negative term. LOL. And then some sister members decided it must be The Potato Peel Pie Quilt, after the darling movie. This one was quilted by my friend on her LA. I’m not linking to the pattern because I totally messed it up!
The next one was put together in kit form from a fabric donation we received from Teri Degenkolb. It’s the 4 Hour Quilt Top aka Carpenter’s Star, sure it is. I have top and backing ready, just need to hand it off to another LA friend.
The last start was begun on Monday while we were sewing at our bee. I LOVE these fabrics!! I found the 3 lights and then just started pulling from our store room of fabric. The pattern is one a member developed, I added one more border than she has written in the pattern. Another pieced back, to use up all those remnants, and this one is ready to be sandwiched and quilted by me. I am planning to do some linear lines crisscrossing the top. Intersected at weird angles and just following their own path.
So, what’s up in your corner of the sewing room today?
