Friday Finish: More Charity Quilts

I just finished up binding two charity quilts…  Here is Ruby showing them off.

LuckyStars

The pattern is an Atkinson Design pattern called Lucky Stars.  You can find it here.  I made one a quilt using the pattern years ago for our daughter Kayla using the pattern.  It’s a wonderful pattern that’s great for beginners or gifted quilts..or anyone for that matter.

The two quilts are lap size.  It was nice I loaded one backing in the machine and machine quilted both quilts.  That was a time saver.

On one quilt I did a floral stipple…

Quilt-1

On the other I did a swirl with a hook.  I used pastel thread on the top and a cream on the back.

Quilt-2
I bound them both with donated blue fabric.

The envelopes with the quilt tops got mixed up upstairs but I am almost positive that these are from Judy Fox in LaCrosse, WI.  Thanks so much Judy.  One of the area towns is putting together baskets for shut ins for Christmas and we are hoping to send these off to them.

I love being able to team up with blog readers to do good for others.  As always if you have quilt tops to share, I’ll gladly quilt them and send them on to worthy charitable projects.

Today, we are hooking up with……Confessions of a Fabric AddictLink a Finish FridayFreedom Fridays, and Crazy Mom Quilts.

    Oooo! I have that pattern! I’ve never used it, but I bought it because there was a sample made from it in a quilt shop which used ’30s prints which I thought would be lovely for a granddaughter. I’d better dig it out of my drawer an get going on it.

    Jo, I am so impressed that volunteer to finish so many quilts for charity. It’s a wonderful thing. I don’t think anyone does that around here (upstate NY, near Rochester).
    I also have that pattern and haven’t used it yet. Will need to try it soon.

    Thanks for sharing! I have this pattern too and the fabrics you chose are so pretty! Also, I get to see the scale from the top picture with your dog. It’s bigger than I thought! Thanks again!
