I have a few quilts to share with you that I am giving to Mott's Children's Hospital for the NICU.
First up is one I made a long time ago but just putting it with the donation quilts.
It is a chenille blanket.
I love how the chenille came out on this one!
The back on this one is adorable too!
I used the dot from one if the DS Quilts fabrics. I love that print for bindings!
The other one is something I made awhile ago too to use up some of the fabric squares I had cut for another quilt.
It is very sweet.
I got to use this great Finding Nemo fabric for the back too!
Some "little" will love this!
The last one is a quilt I made using left over squares cut for a different donation quilt.
I was actually able to get 2 quilts from all the left over squares by adding white squares in between. That also allowed me to not have to do so much matching!
My creative process at work!
This quilt was small enough that I decided to try quilting it myself.
I had heard of other people using some of their decorative stitches on their machines by enlarging them to use for the quilting.
That's what I wanted to do.
So I chose the number 4 stitch on my machine.
It made a great wavy stitch.
Those white squares were just begging for something.
Not just white wavy lines.
Does this give you a clue?
I decided to do straight lines making a rainbow across the quilt like this
Autumn thought it was a GREAT idea!
Look at all that crazy texture!
I used a vintage sheet for the back. It almost makes it look 3D!
I found some left over pink to use for the binding and it worked perfectly!
I am very happy to have 3 quilts to donate!
I have a second one of these quilts to finish piecing and then will use the same backing and quilting to do another one in the future.
I think I need to pack up my scraps though and
send a stuffed FRB off to someone that would love to have them!
If you pay the postage, they could be yours!!
Tell me what you would do with a big box of scraps in the comments and
I will draw a winner from the comments next week Friday.
I have some pretty great scraps but I need to empty the THREE bins I have so I can get to refilling them again.
So that's it, leave me a comment telling me what you will do with them
(even it you just want to pet them)
and make sure there is a valid email address for me to contact you at or I will have to redraw.
I plan to get that box stuffed tonight so maybe I will post some pictures this week too!!!
