Yes, that's right I said four finishes. This week was my last full week off of work, so I have been trying to make the most of it and work on quilts for the charity quilt drive. This one is Fun Flowers--I made sixteen Sunny Sunflowers blocks from Farm Girl Vintage. I sashed them with a bright green
and found this perfect pink with polka dots that form stripes for the border and binding.
I quilted it with meandering loops. The backing is brighter than it looks in this picture--it is a cloudy morning, but it was a great buy at $2.96 a yard at our local fabric store. After washing, the quilt measures 60 inches square.
Number 2 is Boxy Stars. I made two versions of this one, but only this one is done. It is a free pattern from Bonnie Hunter over at http://quiltville.blogspot.com
It was tough to find a border that went with the salmon colored sashing I had in my stash, but this black calico worked perfectly.
I quilted it with the speedy loops and some stars thrown in.
The backing was $3.50 a yard and I bought enough to back another quilt with it too. It also measures 60 inches square after washing. It was still warm from the dryer when I photographed it this morning!
Number 3 is Shangri-La Patches and Pinwheels. I quilted it with the loops.
My mom found a perfect busy backing for it. It measures 60 inches after washing.
Finish number 4 is Wistful! I made the top and my mom quilted it up and bound it.
The backing fabric is an oldie from my stash--probably 10 years. This one measures 60 x 70 inches after washing.
I had so many quilts to get pictures of, I needed the laundry basket to haul them out to the garden.
This top is unnamed and came in yesterday's mail as a donation to our charity quilt drive. We are about half way to our goal of 62 quilts. Please contact me if you would like to donate a top or completed quilt at mcsdces19(at)gmail(dot)com or leave me a comment.
Sherrill donated this fun scrappy top, three backing fabrics, and two pillow cases to our charity quilt drive. Check out her blog and thank her here
