Orange and Yellow - 016

Orange and Yellow has a beautiful color scheme that is joyful and friendly. the blocks were donated, pieced at the Cool Cottons bee way back in may. Sashed and backed with donated yardage and sandwiched with a lofty, warm poly fill batting. It was quilted with a block pattern at Modern Domestic. And finally hand bound.

Block of the Month - 014

The source of these beautiful star shaped quilt blocks is Cool Cottons! It’s their block of the month quilt. One of the quilting classes they teach at their dangerously well stocked store. It was pieced at one of our quilting bees, backed with donated yardage and finally quilted expertly on a long arm machine by Nancy Stovall of Just Quilting.

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″

Pretty in Aqua – for sale 001 SOLD

The days are getting noticeably shorter and cooler now that we have transitioned into September which feels like the perfect time to start selling the beautiful quilts everybody has created since the Earthquake shook Japan earlier this year.

Even though some quilts are still in the assembly stage, we are ready to get going. We will publish a post every second day to showcase each quilt in depth with further information about its history but also important information about size, diameters and composition, whether it has been pre-washed, what kind of binding technique was used etc. With all the donations we got it’s almost impossible to trace back all the people who have contributed to the piece, but we’d love to link back to you and your site. Just comment or email us with a link if you wish and we’ll update the post with the appropriate information.

First up: Pretty in Aqua!
QfQ: Pretty in aqua - quilt for sale!

This beautiful quilt was sent by us from the lovely Nancy, who in fact donated her first quilt or patchwork attempt ever! And it came out beautiful!!! When I opened her package I could not believe that she had never done this work before! The top sheet consists out of immaculately assembled and color coordinated strips in aqua, pink, brown and a bit of green with aqua sashing. The back sheet is a lovely batiste, in coordinating color that reveals at closer look two facing bunnies! Nancy had even prepared the binding so it was a real breeze and joy to finalize this quilt. This guy is sandwiched with organic cotton batting and has not been pre-washed yet. The quilt lines are straight and occur only on the sashing and borders which leaves the patchwork strips untouched.

Dimensions: 42.5″x48″
