Summer Donation Quilts

A while back I was in a scrap busting mood so I pieced about 6 or 7 baby-to-lap sized quilt tops and backs.  It didn't seem to make too much of a dent in my scraps but I did get to use up a bunch of fabrics that I'd inherited from others and that I probably wasn't going to use for anything else.  Two weekends ago (while my big quilt was trying to soak out the blue dye), I got my act together and quilted a couple of them.

On this one, the center block is pieced out of little triangles I had left over from another baby quilt.

I love the scraps of fall-scarecrow-tree panel in this next one.

This third one was just random scrappy squares, and I quilted it a while back but it had been sitting on my shelf since then.

I'm going to take all three of these to infant crisis services where hopefully they can be given to babies and kids who need them.  I've been frustrated with my big project lately, so it was really nice to finish some cute things and feel productive!


  1. Great quilts for a great cause!!

  2. Love your use of the bonus triangles!

  3. This is something that I should do. I have so much print fabric that I seldom use. Your are really cute. I especially like the black and white polka dots with the colorful triangles.
