About a week and a half ago, I put out the call for the charity quilt drive my mother is organizing for a local nursing home. I got a few responses about people offering to donate tops or quilts. We need 62 quilts by Christmas. Well, Adele also known as Bayougirl Quilts generously sent two that arrived in the mail today. They are GORGEOUS!!! This is the first one...I think we should call it Bright Bricks because it has strips of oranges, yellows, reds, and pinks.
The backing is equally beautiful with colors that compliment the top. I especially like the scrappy binding!
It is quilted with stippling all over. It will be a beautiful quilty hug for a nursing home patient!
This is the second quilt Adele sent--another beautiful scrappy quilt! This one looks like a gigantic version of a court house steps block. It is just full of scrappy goodness.
She pieced a lovely backing and bound it with a medium brown. It is also quilted with a stippled design.
She labeled both with her little sweet tags. We appreciate her generosity and these will be amazing quilty hugs for a couple of nursing home residents!
I worked on this top the last couple of days--the design is Sunny Sunflowers with 12 inch blocks, from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book. I used fabrics from my stash and bought the pink border. I am prepping lots of tops with borders, piecing their backings, and readying their bindings. When my mom returns to town mid-week, we need to get going on a longarm quilting marathon! I go back to work soon, so the more quilts we have done before I go back the better. Please contact me either by leaving me a comment on this post or emailing me directly at mcsdces19(at)gmail(dot)com, if you can donate a quilt or a top to this charity quilt drive.
