Quilts of 2016

Two soft and cuddly baby quilts for a large dog rescue charity auction:

I was on a time constraint to get these finished and ready to go to the auction, so this is the only photo I got of them.  SO BUMMED I DIDN'T GET MORE PHOTOS.  The main fabrics are SOCK MONKEYS, with fleece and cotton squares and snuggly flannel on the backs.  Colors are lavender and pinks.  Vals Pals Large Dog Rescue had a silent auction.

Another Quilt for Charity

Here is the quilt:
 I had scraps left over from the baby quilt I made for my newest grandson last year.  I loved the colors and just added a bit more so I could make another one.  I love the prints and how well the colors go together, don't you?
 It is a wacky log cabin block quilt with two solids inserted because I ran out of the fabrics.
Hope you enjoyed this fun bright quilt.    Thanks for visiting.


Here is a cute FOXY CRITTER quilt that I made for the Surmounter's silent auction on Oct 10th.

See my post here to learn more about Surmounters of Texas as well as this quilt!! 

Here are some of the quilts I made for our Worldwide Women's Relief Society Charity day:

I loved creating this quilt from scraps of Noah's Ark Panels fabric donated to our cause.  You can read about this quilt HERE.

You can read about this simple long arm quilted quilt HERE.





I am finally working on my patriotic Bargello quilt again after all this time.  Woo hoo!!

I got the pieces out and ironed them all; now I am pinning and getting ready to sew them into tubes.  The next step will be to follow the pattern by cutting the tubes into certain widths and unsewing a spot on the top where each color is supposed to be in the top spot.

 Sorry for the bad photo.  We have had 7 1/2 inches of rain in two days and it is still gray and overcast, threatening more rain!!  But I wanted to enter this into the Friday Finishes blogs.

I plan to donate this TV Throw to Surmounters, a Disabled Veterans charity where they work with Gypsy Horses in hand (no riding) to help them cope with their disabilities.  They get to pet them, brush them, some walk them around, some just talk to them.  Horses have such a calming effect for all people, and the Veterans sincerely appreciate that.

Thanks for stopping by.  Come back and visit again, won't you?
