Charity quilt #2 completed

Charity quilt #2 for this year is completed.  I made pillowcases for both quilts using scraps and tea dyed muslin.  All were turned in at a recent guild meeting.

  1. Both sides are just terrific! And I love that the binding used several fabrics. What did you use for batting? Nicely done.

      Donna, I use Warm and Natural batting that I buy when it’s 50% off at JoAnn’s. And for my charity quilts, I just trim the backing to one inch, fold over twice to the front and machine stitch. That multi-fabric effect is because the back was two pieces.

    Beautiful quilts. Really like those sherbet colors. They will be much loved.

  3. These are wonderful, Carol! And they’re “real” sized, not just lap/comfort size. They’ll be put to good use, I’m sure. Great colors and patterns, too!

  4. Both are very pretty – and as Ali said a really nice size. Matching pillowcases too – a nice touch – they will make somebody very happy.

    Have to agree with Lisa – the sherbet colors age great! I’m just now rediscovering how versatile triple rail can be.

    Simple block, great effect! I think the colours you have used are so original and they are amazing. What a combination. Someone will be thrilled.

    The quilt turned out very nice and I really like the pillowcases to match. Some person will be so happy to receive it.

    Such a lovely quilt! I haven’t ever tried the binding method you mentioned above, but I’m going to.

  9. DE-LISH-OUS!! Love them!
