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.

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″

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.
