Two Finished Quilts and One in Progress

Two Finished Quilts and One in Progress

It’s been a while since I last showed you some of the quilts I’ve made.

For the past couple of years, I’ve done most of my quilting with the Piecemakers, a ministry of a local church.

Here is a baptism quilt I made:


Someone donated this adorable pink bunny fabric. Doesn’t it have a vintage vibe?


Someone also donated a bunch of hand-dyed, batik, and hand-dyed-looking fabrics. I paired them with pink fabrics in order to make them pop, and turned them into 3-inch nine-patch blocks.



Once assembled into a comfort quilt, I tied the layers together with variegated pink embroidery floss.


All done.


The backing is a hibiscus print that uses the same colors, yellow, pink, orange, and purple.



And now on to a baby boy quilt for the crisis pregnancy center.

Someone donated half a yard of chameleon fabric. I fussy-cut 12 blocks from it, and then made four-patch blocks out of scraps and brightly-colored coordinating fabrics.


That’s as far as I’ve gotten so far. Stay tuned for more progress.
