I’d love to tell you that all the quilt finishes were mine, but alas, they aren’t.

I am excited about them though!!

First up is a charity quilt that was sent out to one of our volunteer binders, Karen Green.  The top came to me from Nancy Clarke from Homestead, FL….and now the quilt will be donated to Quilts of Compassion.  Isn’t that awesome?  Another quilt going out to help someone in need.

Jellyroll race quilts like this one are fast and perfect for giving.  I’ve seen many and no matter the colors, I always like them.  Sometimes simplicity is fun.

Thanks ladies for helping with the charity quilt project.

Next up is a quilt from a blog reader who used one of our free patterns to make a quilt:

Cathy Witt writes, “I am from Tellico Plains, TN.  I have followed your blog for years.  When the red and green Christmas Star quilt first appeared I knew I had to make it. I was so anxious, I didn’t even wait for the tutorial.. I just jumped in and tried to figure it out.  Although technically what I figured out wasn’t exactly your method of assembling it,  it was working. Then life got in the way.  I put it away and haven’t touched it in quite some time.  This week a good friend was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and I knew I needed to send him a quilt.  I didn’t have anything at all suitable for a man.. Then I remembered your star quilt. I was using greens, blue and creams.. perfect for a man.. It was barely underway. I had only a handful of blocks and a number of “components” made up, but it was all there in the bag where I left it.  I started sewing and sewing and yesterday I had it ready for quilting.  I quilted it last night, bound it this morning and put it in the mail to him this afternoon.  Thank you for such a great pattern.”

Well thank you for sharing the photo.  I love to see what you guys do with our patterns.

As noted we made the original one in Christmas colors…boy does it look nice it these colors and as said, it’s a perfect “guy” quilt.

If you are looking for the free pattern to make this quilt you can find it here.

Quilters have such big hearts.  It so awesome to belong to a community of givers.  I couldn’t feel more blessed.

    I just love the quilt that Cathy Witts finished for a friend. She is right. It looks just fabulous in the blues, greens and tans. It looks masculine, but I bet many women would like it too. I know the male friend will feel loved with this beautiful quilt.

    Love your pattern in Cathy’s colors! Stars in quits are becoming one of my favorite pattern types.
