Fast and easy quilts for donation

14 07 2017

Working on major projects is laborious sometimes, so I’m showcasing here all the little projects I do to help me keep my sanity as I work through the larger endeavors.

Yup, more child-sized quilts for donation to EBHQ’s program that distributes quilts to a wide variety of worthy not-for-profit organizations here in the Bay Area.

Here’s what has been made in the long hiatus I have taken from this site:


Lavender Cats, 2017
36″ x 42″


A kind EBHQ member donated this fabulous red fabric, covered with different black and white lambs, all of whom are knitting.  I could not resist finishing this kit myself.

All Red Squares, 2017
36″ x 42″

I was equally inspired by this crazy cat fabric, although it took a little while to figure out how to use this one.

Purple Cats, Detail


Purple Cats, 2017
36″ x 42″

The leftovers from another project . . . .

Yellow Triangles II, Leftovers, 2017
40″ x 41.5″

And then another guild member donated a huge piece of this fabulous baby animals fabric:


The fabric piece was large enough for me to make all five of these.  Sooo fun I could not stop.





And #5

That’s it for now.

Love the bold geometrically patterned pieces against the cute animal prints! The play of the regular with irregular placements keeps the viewer engaged.

I believe I’m the culprit who donated the green baby animal fabric. When I saw it at Stone Mountain, I bought a couple yards for myself – couldn’t stop chuckling when I looked at it … so before they put it away, I brought what yardage was left on the bolt, rolled it up, put a big ribbon on it and gave it to Deanna for Children’s quilts at a Saturday Drop-In. She loved it!

Your quilts are wonderful! I can just see the grins and smiles on the children’s faces who receive them!!! (-:

OOOOOO, yaaaaay!!! I finally know who donated this super-duper fabric. Hope you can see how much fun is was to make these baby animal quilts.
