Some finishes for Charity!! Yeah!

Here are a couple of tops I finished in the past 2 weeks.  I started them in the Fall but had to set them aside to get organised for our local Fair.
 These two were made with some fat quarters of Amy Butler fabric.  They are such bright and cheerful prints I thought they would make good kid quilts for donation.  They still need borders but I'm going to keep that simple / solid.
The center of this little cutie is made from four crazy patch orphan blocks.  All I had to do was square them up, sew them together and add the border.  I don't know who made the blocks. They were gifted to me by the "bargain garden" as left overs that did not sell.  The BG ladies gave me a whole bag of orphan blocks to make charitable quilts.  These cute blocks practically jump out of the bag and put themselves together.  It's fun when that happens!
What's your favorite pattern for charity quilts?
You're probably thinking these aren't really finished finishes!  Next up will be some quilted and bound  ready-to-go finishes!  'til then Happy weekend!
And since I'm celebrating some finishes I'm linking up with Can I Get A Whoop Whoop?!  the link is at the top of the page!
Cheers, Claire W.


  1. All lovely projects. The crazy quilt blocks are really fun.

  2. These are great! Such fun quilts and some little girls will be very happy. The sense of blocks behind a lattice is cool. I want on that list from the Bargain Garden! I like orphan blocks--I should dig out some of my own. ;-)

  3. Love the charity quilts!! They're awesome!! As always!

  4. I really like the second quilt, Claire, with it's double sashing. It's a great quilt!
