2013: The Quilts

Most of the first post about 2013 showed special projects.  Here are the quilts.

And here is a donation quilt made from extra blocks. I used it to try out blended borders.

Here are two more donation quilts, made for Ronald McDonald House in 2013:

Happy Plaids is my own design, but there are MANY similar quilts out there

Twinkle, a pattern by Swirly Girl Designs, was made because I had some fabulous leftover fabric

The first post about 2013 projects included a table runner made from leftovers after I finished this next quilt:

This quilt, pieced improvisationally from bright batiks and black, is one of my all-time favorites.  

This quilt was for a special baby; and yes, that’s me with my beautiful daughter 🙂

I found a pattern for this little miniature while on a trip, and just couldn’t resist making it–all from scraps, of course.

Here’s an improvisationally designed T shirt quilt I made for a friend:

And finally, the last Ronald McDonald quilt for 2013, made from blocks that were just too wild without solid sashing!

  1. I especially love the twinkle quilt and how you photographed it……love the “models” in your display of the baby quilt :-)…..and always admire your generosity it donating so many to worthy causes……

  2. So much cheerful goodness here! I love the plaids, I love the batiks at the top. Twinkle and the Roman/Chinese coins are both delicious. Thanks for sharing. I always feel inspired looking at your quilts.

  3. Quite a collection. I love the batik one that you started out with and chuckled at “my own design but there are a lot like it out there.” I doubt that there is much that is really original or unique

  4. 🙂
