I love all the warm colors! I always shy away from using certain warm colors together (I have some weird "Color rules" in my head) but then when I see them together in a quilt I love it. I might need to become a bit more adventurous! Cheesy

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Sweet Nine Patch Charity Quilt on: April 13, 2015 03:04:23 PM
This is the last of 3  belated charity quilts for my do.Good Stitches group (Faith Circle) I finally sent off. This is from June 2014. Our charity is called Restore Innocence and the quilts go to girls who are rescued from human trafficking. This is a basic 9 patch, but half the blocks have a white middle and the other half of the blocks are reversed--all white except for a middle block that is colorful. This idea is from Red Pepper Quilts





I asked for a palette of golden yellow, all shades of pink, all shades of aqua and turquoise, and light to medium gray. I also asked for a soft white like Kona snow rather than a bright white.



My example blocks


And I've found that over the years, the more information you can give people on your vision when you're doing a group project like this, the better. For this quilt I also pulled fabrics from my stash as an example of what I was looking for.





This is such a simple design I was really excited that my friend Rachel did some amazing long arm stitching on it. If you want to see some in progress shots you can check instagram #faithcircle








It's pretty hard to see, but for the binding I used a pink on pink fabric that has tiny little squares...I thought it was a fun echo of the squares in the quilt!

6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Scrap Boxes Charity Quilt on: April 13, 2015 02:49:50 PM
This is 1 of 3 belated charity quilts for my do.Good Stitches group (Faith Circle) I finally sent off. This is from October 2013. Our charity is called Restore Innocence and the quilts go to girls who are rescued from human trafficking. This quilt was based on a couple made on the blog Squares and Triangles





I asked for scrap boxes to each be one color but scrappy (duh) and to use any colors except for black and brown.

These were my example blocks, and then I actually made a few more for the final quilt since someone dropped out of the group during that month.



I just quilted this with a serpentine stitch. Easy peasy!






This is kind of my go to pieced backing. One offset wide strip in between two larger pieces of fabric, and that strip itself has a strip pieced into it, also offset (not in the middle).



You can also see it here when I tried to do a photo shoot with my nephews. Oops, not tall enough!



7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Greek Cross Charity Quilt on: April 13, 2015 02:38:18 PM
I finally sent off 3 belated charity quilts for my do.Good Stitches group (Faith Circle) and took some pictures of them. I'm starting with the oldest first, this is from July 2013. Our charity is called Restore Innocence and the quilts go to girls who are rescued from human trafficking.



I chose a Greek Cross block which is a pretty basic block based on a 9 patch. (and to make a 12.5 inch block, starting with 5 inch charm squares works well--you can trim the plain square blocks down to 4.5 and when you make the HSTs you also have room to trim them down if you start with them at 5). Then I asked for it to be scrappy and for a palette of teal, plum/purple, coral, and navy with white as the background color. I like to give my group a little palette as well as my example blocks when we start. I love Colour Lovers to make palettes!



My example blocks



Members from my quilt guild got to take turns quilting on this at a local store during an event we had there. It's a sewing machine mounted on a frame, so akin to a long arm. This is a beads on a string pattern, very fast and easy.

You need to teach a seminar on how to get things done! Cheesy
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: pink & purple parallelograms on: April 13, 2015 02:04:11 PM
I love this! And the strip of unbroken white is great, keeps it from having that dizzying effect I think.

Wowzers! Way to use those scraps! I like the one with the different sized squares, it's always a bummer when it doesn't quite turn out how you want it to though. Hope you're feeling better now.
