I’ve finished two crib-sized quilts for donation. One went to my Soul Sister’s church and the other to my church. Hopefully they will be able to use them to raise money either with an auction or raffle of some sort.
I pieced both of these together back in the summer…
Ahhh, how I wish for those warm days…
This first one was done using a jelly roll of Oh, Deer by Moda and I just sewed the strips together. Easy-peasy!
These were WIP’s ever since then. They went together very quickly and the quilting was really fun too! I did an alternating wave/loop-de-loop in each of the strips for the strip quilt which I named “Surefooted As a Deer”.
For the back I used a large piece of yardage from the same line and added strips of Kona Snow to the edges to bring it up to the right width.
I even had a decent day for outdoor photo taking!
The second quilt I used a charm pack from the Oh, Deer line along with a charm pack of Kona Snow and pieced them together in alternating squares.
This one is called “As the Deer Pants for Streams of Water” and I did a spiralling square for the quilting in each square.
I absolutely love the spiralling squares! I think I may like the back of the quilt even more because of the quilting.
I used another piece of the same yardage but broke it up with a big band of the Kona Snow through the middle. I think it makes the print pop!
Both of these crib quilts are already delivered.
I’m now working on some Kindergarten quilts that I’ll post about later in the week. I’m linking with my Monday and Tuesday link ups found in my sidebar.
Till next time….Rita
