A quilt from donated blocks

A few weeks ago I was given 12" blocks from a block swap, by Lorraine. It was a quick job to add sashing and a border, and today I quilted and bound it. There's a girl just waiting for this pretty quilt, I know! Thanks so much Lorraine!

A great use of scraps

I had some 4 1/2" cat squares left over from the 2 cat quilts I made, so I went delving in the scrap box for longer scraps, and came up with this irregular log cabin. The border is the only part thats not scraps - a very economical quilt!

And one is finished already for the next shipment

Another scrappy quilt, using leftovers for the nine patches.

The final quilt going into this posting

This makes the 15th quilt going into this posting. It was a three person effort! I guess you would call it an irregular chinese coins? Anyway, it makes great use of scraps, and there's a lot for the recipient to look at. We love the purple sashing and borders - such a great contrast that we'll have to try to buy more of this fabric!
