Funky pinks - 013

This is such a fun and vibrant quilt! I don’t remember if it was donated in blocks or pieced here at one of the bees. Yet many of the strips look so familiar that I tend to think it was made out of donated strips only! This quilt is one of those where you can almost feel the fun the makers had! Many of us said how exhilarating it is to try to piece blocks out of fabric, print and color combos that we otherwise would have never chosen. And how fun is the outcome!
The back was donated at the Sew On! quilt studio bee. The design is the NW Modern quilt, one of the many projects from Susan’s book Modern Log Cabin Quilting available here at Amazon.

Traditional Quilt - 012

I wish I could correctly name the donor of this lofty quilt. The whole quilt got donated for sale through donation from a generous supporter! It might be a more traditional design, but it’s been sewn and quilted precisely with what I’d think is a lofty and warm polyfill.

Dimensions: 52″ x 75″

Wonky Squares - 011

This absolutely wonderful quilt designed and donated by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Franson! is a total stunner. A blog/site that I would always recommend to anybody interested in quilting and patchworking. Her aesthetic is beautiful, her instruction clear and concise and definitely the best resource besides taking a quilting class from her at Modern Domestic when you happen to not live in town. This quilt was also part of her beautiful book Practical Guide to Patchwork available on Amazon.

Because of it’s larger dimension, the unique design and the exquisit stippling (I tried it myself yet need a loooot of practice until I am anywhere near Elizabeth’s skissl), we priced it at $200. No wonder it sold immediately. I myself purchased it – the color scheme beautifully bridges my daughters bedroom colors and it will always be a keepsake, reminding me of QfQ.

There are over 10 more quilts to be posted over the next few weeks! We are posting each M,W,F – so come back and see what’s still available and consider donating to Mercy Corps.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the quilts posted so far. Please go to our Mercy Corps Japan fundraising site and donate $150 or whatever the quilt you love has been priced at (shipping is on us). Through the site you can donate to ANY cause you’d like the money to go to. Just state your preferred cause in the subject line. Mercy Corps will distribute the funds according to your specifications on the back end. Then send an email to quiltsforquakesurvivors@gmail.com with the donation confirmation number and the number of the quilt and your shipping address.

center star - 009

This quilt can only be called center star! Again, this entire quilt top was donated, we backed it with flannel at our last quilting bee at Staver Locomotive. It might be a bit more traditional – at the same time has a lovely festive feel – and is almost conversational with very interesting detailing. Great for Fall!

A center star has been exquisitely applied/inserted. Such a great draw to little fingers.

Lawn Chair Quilt – 005 – SOLD

September 26, 2011 at 8:38 am | Posted in Craftivism, Fundraising, Portland | 3 Comments

Lawn Chair Quilt

Well – what can I say, this quilt is a stunner. And and absolutely one of those quilts that you need to get your hands on. The Lawn Chair Quilt pattern has been designed by Monica Solorio Snow, aka the HappyZombie. Not only are all the fabrics from her own pattern line with Lecien, the top sheet has been assembled by her, and she wrote about the QfQ effort here! The backing is from donated yardage and it has been bound by Petra one of the many amazing members of the PMQG that helped us throughout this whole project. Thank you all again so much!

Lawn Chair Quilt - 005

Dimensions: 50.5″x72″

The quilt has been washed – and the back sheet bled into the front – which gives the whole quilt a bit of a pastel green hue that is absolutely charming! And any more bleeding shouldn’t happen anymore.

If you are interested in purchasing this quilt. Please either go to our Mercy Corps Japan fundraising site or donate $150 (which includes shipping) to any other Mercy Corps cause you want to contribute to. Then send an email to quiltsforquakesurvivors@gmail.com with the donation confirmation number and the number of the quilt (in this case 005) and your shipping address. We will send you a confirmation email and ship the quilt within 48 hours via USPS.

Friendly haze - 004

This beautiful 12-block Log Cabin Quilt has a wonderfully subdued color scheme: greys with off white, blue and green.  The blocks were donated, it was sashed and backed from – again – donated yardage and absolutely beautifully stippled by a member of the PMQG. This quilt would be wonderful for a modern gender-less nursery.
