Quilts for Charity

Remember in September, I posted pictures of some fabric? (See my post here.)

I have completed 5 quilts and on Tuesday I turned them in at Quilting for Good.  I had a number of errands and couldn’t stay, but said hi to everyone.  Of course, any good quilting group must have “Show & Tell,” so I stayed long enough to show off the quilts.

Three Quilts were made using a Super 9-Patch Pattern I got off the web at Quiltmaker.  It uses 1-yard each of 3 coordinating fabrics, folded 2 times and cut 2 times.  Mixing & Matching the cut pieces, 3 quilt tops approximately 33″ x 40″ are made.  Add 3 yards of backing fabric and you have 3 completed baby quilts.

Last month when we made a trip to Lancaster County, PA, we stopped at Weavers Dry Goods in Lititz, PA, and picked up some Panels (as well as other fabric).  using the Panels as the quilt tops and adding batting & backing – Quilt-As-Desired – and you have 2 more baby quilts.

All of these quilts were done using the Pillowcase Method – layer batting, backing & top (right-sides together), stitch all around the edges using 1/4″ seam, & leaving about 6″ unstitched.  Turn right-side out, stitch the open seam closed, pin & quilt – Tada!  It’s done, no binding necessary.
