Next up is this T-shirt quilt that I made for myself. You can see by the link I finished the top in 2013! Since I made it for myself the quilting and binding kept getting pushed to the end of the To- do list. But I finally finished it and it is really nice and cuddly.
I'm not much of a fishing person but I really like fish T-shirts.
Some of them are really funny!
Next up is what I call a "Big Chunks" quilt. A top made from fat quarters and other large chunks of fabric. The Top was made by Randy as a backing but she decided not to use it so she gave it to me to make a charitable quilt. I used a really cuddly minky kind of throw to back it and quilted each large patch with a different free form pattern, Good Practice!
Sometimes I just followed the patterns in the fabric.
I thought this one looked pretty cool? I would use this one again if I could figure out how to do it without the help of the fabric!
This is almost a twin size. I think I will give this one to Hospice.
I try to make about 12 charitable quilts a year. I'm a little behind schedule but I think I'll be able to catch up if I finish the tops in my last post soon!
What kind of patterns do you use for Charitable quilts?
Happy over the hump day!
