At the last posting of quilt finishes I indicated that I had three more to finish off to meet my goal of having six to donate to the hospital. Well, I have finished those three with a week and a half to spare!
I've shared before about the quilter whose children gave our group all her fabrics when she passed away. The last piece I had of those I took was a yardage with half-square-triangles printed on it. I found a tutorial on Missouri Star Quilt Company for a block called 'Royal Wedding', that used 4 blocks of 4 hst. I cut the yardage into groups of 4 units with a 1/4-inch border for the seam allowance. Other 'Betty' fabrics with coordinating colors went into the internal sashings. TOTALLY different measurements than MSQC pattern but I got the effect and I'm very happy with this result.
The next one was made from fabrics I got on deep discount. I selected the butterfly feature fabric and then chose several coordinates. The pattern was torn out from a very old magazine.
What looks like plain yellow is actually a gold imprinted over yellow.
When I was buying that discount fabric, I bought more of the gold and then added several tone-on-tone fabrics in jewel colors.
This is a pattern that I scratched out on paper and I have no idea what the source is!
So this wraps up the year with 15 quilts finished. I have two more in progress, one cut but not started and one ready to cut. I have no illusions about any of these being complete by the end of the year so I am closing off the count.
Of those, 14 went to charity (hospital or pregnancy center) and one to a lady who had just lost her companion dog.
Many plans for next year. After all, the BIG fabric store just went out of business and I have three large bags of brand new fabric from their final sale!
