Leftover follow-up and donations

15 05 2020

All the leftovers from the UFO donation described in the previous post made only a small stack of strips, so I found this cute multicolored print in my stash and made just one more child-sized quilt from this color family.

A fun finale to this use-up-the-scraps project and a nice diversion for me.

And when that one was finished I had time to stitch and quilt one of the kits that I had made up, simple and fun.

And just one more . .

I had taken a bundle of coordinated fabrics that Sandi Cummings had put together for our First Place for Youth volunteer group.  I liked the bundle but did not know what I was going to do with it.

Then I remembered the quilt that fellow volunteer and quilter extraordinaire Becky Keck was making from piles of leftover from her previous projects.  This quilt pattern seems to work with any grouping of fabrics that have even the slightest color or pattern relationship with each other.

I played around with the fabrics, added a few more from my collection, and finished all in one day. These rectangles are 6″ by 8″ finished, so it cuts and sews in no time.

I hope this one will eventually find a good home with one of the First Place clients.

Stay well and keep sewing.
