Quilts for West Texas Part 2

I spent yesterday morning working on quilts for West, Texas.

Here are the latest finishes.

From Jill Klop, this is her version of Bonnie Hunter’s Bricks and Stepping Stones.  It’s one of Bonnie’s free patterns that you can find here.

The quilt is much prettier in person…the lighting to take pictures today is awful.

I have been quilting all of these in a variety of ways.  Some scream for a fun design like this one did.  This is Wonky Feathers from Pajama Quilter. (I really recommend her books and videos)

The backing is an Egyptian Cotton sheet that came in my bunch of sheets.  It is AMAZINGLY soft and cozy.  You can’t tell from the photo but the thread is variegated so it looks really fun.  Many of these designs I wouldn’t try but doing these for charity gives me a little boost in determination to try something new.  I think I can do this design without even thinking now!!

The next two quilts are from Marjorie Hicks.

This on is made with an American Jane fabric line.  Sorry I don’t know the name of the pattern.  I am guessing it must be a jelly roll pattern.  I love-love-love the binding.  It’s a red print from the fabric line.

For this one I tried another quilting design from the Pajama Quilter.

It was the first time I tried this design.  I will be using it again.  Honestly I hope the Pajama Quilter comes out with another book and video.  I will be the first in line to get it.  The designs are easy.  For anyone wanting to expand your free motion talents, I highly recommend volunteering to quilt a few charity quilts.  Being I know some family will be thankful for whatever they get, I know that my quilting will be at least adequate so it makes me unafraid to try.

The next quilt, also made by Marjorie, have big blocks making it a perfect quick sew charity quilt.  The star pattern is fun.

This one is larger than the other two.  By the time I got to this one, I was pooped.  (I had quilted all these and one more in one long day!) I just did a stipple design.

Thanks ladies for your awesome donations…I will get these sent out soon.
