Charitable Quilt Donations

Teen Boy Leader & Ender QuiltOver the last two weeks, I’ve finished up two charity projects to donate.  The first is made from various orphan blocks and units and pieced as leaders & enders while putting together any number of other projects recently.

You can see my regular 2″ L&E’s as the small squares, but also 3 1/2″ squares from my scrap stash, orphan flying geese, hourglass blocks, and a set of tiny 1″ HSTs from some long-finished project.  The main theme of these quilt was that it be suitable for a teenage boy, so the blues and greens and browns dominate.

The finished quilt is somewhere around 56×68, I think.  It’s all straight line quilted since I figured loops or meanders would be a little too girly for it!

And speaking of girly, I also put together this small-ish girly quilt from some orphaned log cabin blocks donated to the East Cobb Quilters’ Guild.  There were 20 blocks total, and I couldn’t reconcile myself to having a “half row” of log cabins if I did a 4×5 block layout, so I went with 4×4 and some fan-like cornerstones.  This one finishes at 42×42″.

  1. I love the randomness of the boy quilt even though I myself am really not good with random :))) I would’ve never noticed the flying geese and hourglass if you haven’t pointed it out. And the girly log cabin is such a soft-looking quilt!
