Sewing for the Children’s Quilt Project

5 06 2015

I am soooo totally still into the just-sit-down-and-sew mood, and this time for a different reason.

It is because I am so busy organizing fabric donations and kit construction for my quilt guild’s volunteer effort, the Children’s Quilt Project (more info here),  and I have consequently felt as though I did not have time to work on my own quilts.

Since this other work in non-sewing, I have sneaked into the studio and grabbed time to sew on quick and easy projects that I can finish in a shorter period of time.

Here’s the gallery of items I’ve made since the last post:

From triangle scraps donated by EBHQ-er Judy J, an actual finished quilt—-


I quilted and bound this lovely top sewn (from a kit I put together) by another EBHQ member—-


Sorting through all the donations of fabrics to the Project, I found a large bin half full of 2.5″ x 4.5″ rectangles.  I played with these for a while, and came up with a few quilt tops—-

A Christmas Chinese Coin Variation—-


A Sideways Christmas Chinese Coin—-


A Christmas Rail Fence—-


A Somber Rail Fence—-


A Purple Rail Fence—-


A Brickwork—-


Two Stripes—-



And one large Four Patches with Half Square Triangles—-


That’s all for now.

Hey, Valerie–Thanks for adding CQP to your list of worthy volunteer efforts. We are also making and distributing twin-sized quilts to groups that support older children/teens, so these are always welcome as well.

Quilts can always be dropped off at general meetings, drop-in sessions, or at New Pieces Quilt Store in Berkeley. OR contact me at above e-mail or at and we can find an alternative.

Wow… so impressive. I don’t know how you manage to knock out such great quilts. See you soon at group meeting. Thanks for dropping of the Piedmont Post. Sonia

No wonder you have not posted for a while, you have been busy! They look great and will be well loved by CQP recipients.
