A gathering of quilters....
and quilts made for donation to a 'need'. Hi, I'm Finn, and I have been blogging at Pieces from my scrapbag since 2005. The quilt above was made for a teenage girl in MI, as part of the Wrapped In Hope prison ministry. This one was tied with green perle cotton and has flannel on the back for snug-ability!
And yes, if it looks familiar it is... same pattern as the first but different color combo, 4 colors vs 3 colors. This one went to a little boy as part of the Quilts 4 Leukemia project. His favorite color was red, and he loves dinasors. I can't remember if it was tied or machine quilted...more and more senior moments lately, LOL
This quilt, also made for Quilts 4 Leukemia, a few years earlier. Red and white are to be the primary colors, but no pattern in particular. This one is a Jacob's Ladder variation. Again, it was tied. All of these quilts I made are with flanne backingl to add the 'snuggle' factor. I've made many donation quilts over the years of blogging, and plan to continue doing so. I've sent just the tops sometimes, and the whole quilt at others. Getting the tops finished is fairly easy, despite health considerations, and I'm always happy to find a project that will take quilt tops for volunteers to finish up.
