Stories to go with the H2H quilts shown on an earlier post

Sometimes I have a time trying to tell one quilt from the close-ups of it shown on other blogs... So on this blog I am sharing the stories of the quilts that I'm giving to the Hands to Help Comfort quilts challenge. I'll show the quilts again and the sordid truths about them. LOL

This one started out as a Squirrel Quilt...


You know how squirrel quilts can be... so exciting to start, so tedious to finish. I liked the color scheme from an ad in a magazine, and I love the white and muslin background pieces on other quilts I have seen, but just not the way I did it. 

This red and muslin quilt is Cherry Pie - my third quilt, and it's been in the UFO pile since the 90s.  It's huge, and I just don't feel like finishing it. There are a few blocks cut that I will send with to Victoria's in Canada... in case she needs to add to the part she cuts off of this one.


The next two may need to be sewn together to be big enough, but that should be easy. These are "made" fabric pieces I made a couple of summers ago. There are orphan blocks and paper pieced blocks included in each. Close up photos show those blocks.

 





 

And here is the baby quilt for Jack's Basket.  Some of my favorite multicolored fabrics with two sided "frames".  It's an easy quilt to make, and I made it for a friend to give to a grandchild.  I asked and asked for an address, but none was offered.  I have two other quilts for the other grandkids that aren't as yet finished. They will be donated somewhere when they are finished, too.

Don't you just love the spacey blue on the left and the rainbow "flames" next to it?  In honor of my nephew, Brandon, this one goes to Jack's Basket.

Stories and close-up photos as promised. Shipping these tomorrow.
Hugs,
Terri

  5. Those rainbow flames are great. I handed off a couple of quilt tops for kids, for someone else to finish for donations thru my large guild. I'll never finish them, but now they will be used instead of hanging in the closet.
