Community Quilts from Elizabeth

I have LOTS of quilts for share with you today. They are all from Elizabeth. She writes:

The first quilt is a finish I did for Patty Katz, a blog reader from Florida who made gorgeous pinwheels.  This is one of several quilt tops that she sent me. 

The back is a sheet that I had with hearts in it to mirror the hearts on the border.  This quilt will go to the D.C. Diaper Bank, which makes infant supply baskets for low-income moms and their babies.

The other quilts are from the Cresco ladies.  You might remember the motorcycle one in particular.  I honestly wasn’t crazy about it until I quilted it, but now I love it! 

All were backed with fabric from my stash and went to Comfort Cases, an organization that supports foster children with backpacks stuffed with comforting and personal care items. 

Here are three more quilts that I finished on my home sewing machine.  The first two are compliments of the talented Cresco ladies.  The first one has lots of frogs on it and is so cute.  I quilted it with circles and stipples and will be delivering it to Comfort Cases for donation to a foster care recipient.

The second one is an abstract design with both modern and traditional fabrics.  I free-handed stipples with some triangles thrown in to reflect some of the angular quilt pieces.  It will also go to Comfort Cases.

The last one is actually a panel that was sent to me by your blog reader, Patty Katz.  It’s destined for the D.C. Diaper Bank and donation to a new mother.  I outlined the cute animals and tried some free-form swirls on the borders.

All of these were backed with fabric from my stash.  I was happy to put it to good use.

I so admire Elizabeth for tackling all of these on her domestic machine. It takes some shoulder power to do that and my shoulders just don’t have that power anymore. All of these turned out great and are going to such good causes. Many thanks to the Cresco Ladies and to Patty for their great work.

  1. It’s always so good to hear about the good organizations out there that help children. Comfort Cases sounds really nice. The quilts turned out lovely! Blessings

      I make all sizes of quilts in my machine. I do them in sections and then see the sections together by layers. Then hem them still on the machine. It takes lots of practice to get them right.
