Charity Thursday

Wanted to show all the latest charity quilts that have been completed. The first are 3 of the 5 charity quilts that I quilted over the holidays and just got back from binding (thanks Jane) yesterday.

This first quilt is from a batik half square triangle kit I cut using my Accuquilt GO. This was pieced by Eileen and bound by Jane)

The next quilt is a floral strippy quilted that I made a few months ago out of donated flowers of the month fabric. When I got the strippy part done it looked so blah I added the flowers. Binding again done by Jane.

This third quilt was made by Jan G. Beautiful applique flowers. I am sure one of the ladies at hospice house is going to love this one.

Lastly this last quilt was made and quilted by Sue F from my day time guild using the warm wishes pattern.

All of these quilts are great and will be going to our local Hospice House as soon as a few more are finished.

I'm crazy about the finishes of all these quilts. The flowers on the BOM flowers row quilt really made it! Sandi

They look great Kathie, and will surely bring some comfort to those that receive them..

Those are gorgeous! Are the flowers on the strippy one an AccuQuilt die?

Bright and comforting quilts, Kathie! I especially like how you added applique to the strippie to make it more original.

Stumbled upon your blog today somehow. I am always browsing the Internet. I really like the Strippy Hospice quilt! I took up quilting in 1980 and I always knew I would have instant new friends whenever we moved! Maybe when my new Quilt Shed gets done and I can get to my sewing machine again, I'll start quilting again? Well, I won't hold my breath. I think I love research and writing too much though I have begun to do some applique again because I can carry it with me when I travel with my husband to jazz events. Please do stop by and see my quilt history blogs. Everyone who writes a quilting blog today is adding to Quilt History! Just google ...Quilt History Reports doll quilts... for starters. But there is a lot more than that to explore! What would Hospice and children's hospitals and our Vets do without quilters!!! Karen A.
