Charity quilts 2015

A  few friends and I were donated a whole box of scraps of baby flannel prints. Having already past the baby phase with our own kids and not yet reached the baby phase with grandkids, we decided to make them into quilts to donate.  We found a group of women in our city who were already doing just that and joined them to create a big load of baby quilts to donate to the local Ronald McDonald House and Inn from the Cold, a program helping homeless children and their families.  Here a just a few of the over 50 quilts that were created to donate.

Sophie's Swirl Quilt

Sophie's Swirl Quilt is made with fabric from my favorite designers, Bonnie and Camille and uses their line called "Hello Darling".  The quilt features a very simple design with half-square triangles and white background. I quilted it with Cinnamon bun swirl quilting, and a plain white backing.  I love the fresh crispness of this mostly white quilt contrasting with it's sunny colours and strawberry prints.
For this queen sized quilt, I used a fat eighths bundle and still had some decent sized scraps left for another future quilt.

Started: November 2015
Finished: December 2015
Quilting: Cinnamon bun swirl
Fabric: Hello Darling by Bonnie and Camille
Size: Queen size 95" × 95"

Charity quilts

Just to have a record of these quilts made by the Relief Society that I had helped with. We made 7 twin size quilts to give to the teenagers and children of three Syrian refugee families that have come to our area.
Aren't they cute? All from donated fabric and batting and of course time!
