A little different . . .

29 09 2016

And now for something completely different—–

I duecided to take a break from paper-piecing isosceles  triangles when I had finished 92.  So I sewed together two tops for making into quilts for our Children’s Quilt Project wing of EBHQ’s Community Quilts efforts.

I made these tops from kits I made for the Project using my all-time favorites—the leftover 2″ squares.

Kits kinda come together on their own.  Scraps cut into 2.5″ squares begin to combine into interesting groups or color combinations, and these groups find fun borders and binding.  I love this process.

Sometimes, when I create a kit, I can’t let go of it and HAVE to make it myself.  Then, I usually finish the whole quilt.  And it does still feel good to know that some child/family will receive this quilt.  I know they really appreciate these cuddly comfort quilts that our guild donates to a wide variety of deserving non-profits.

The latest two—

Still have three more kits that I could  sew now, but I think it’s time to get those last 40 triangles sewn (if they actually ARE the last triangles; I almost never know).

Enjoy.

I’m so glad you posted the blue squares. The patterns look great! What a great idea to make quilts for people in need. I’m sure they are much appreciated.

Love those tops. I just sewed the bindings on two quilts for DDCQP myself.
