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.

 

 





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.

#3

#4

And #5

That’s it for now.
