Green Scrappy Quilts

This is from my wall of green scrappy “made fabric” from a few months ago. This was the ongoing -and apparently unending- task of trying to use up all my scraps for a useful purpose. I got pretty far on using a large portion of green tiny bits and came up with the idea to make a traditional Double Wedding Ring pattern as a companion piece to the star below, which I made last year. I like the contrast of the orderly traditional block pattern with the chaos of the green scrappy made-fabric. Both are around 36-42″ square.

For friends in need

I have a personal goal to make a quilt for any friend who has a baby 😀 or has surgery☹️. Sadly, for my sick friends and family, I’ve had a hard time keeping up with my goal. But I’m glad to have this quilt solidly underway for a good friend whom I hope will be cuddling in it soon. Hopefully I’ll finish it this weekend and deliver it to her.  I like how happy it looks! And it features a nice historical selection of my various quilt project scraps over the years.IMG_7530IMG_7535IMG_7551IMG_7548

David’s Get-Well-Happy Birthday-Happy-Anniversary Quilt

A lovely coworker had an emergency appendectomy over the weekend. Anyone I know that has surgery (or has a baby!) gets a quilt from me!

So this is my take on a “Guy Quilt.” Easy half square triangle blocks at a very large 14″ each. I challenged myself to only use fabric that I had on hand. In this case it was Parson Gray fabric by David Butler that I’d  saved for a special occasion. I cut and sewed enough for a second quilt for another “special guy” and still have more leftover!

Note my two cute quilt models – thanks ladies!
