Quilts For Project Linus And The Master Chorale

I was asked to make a quilt for Project Linus.  A novelty fabric was supplied.  I chose to use my scraps to make a scrappy baby quilt – I really like scrappy quilts.  Most of the novelty fabric went on the back of the quilt.  I even used the different stitches on my machine (finally!) to quilt it all together.  You can see the different stitches on the photo – less than stellar, but stitched with the best intentions:

And a friend of mine belongs to our local Master Chorale.  They are doing some fundraising, so I made a Christmas quilt for their raffle.  I followed a tutorial by Missouri Star Company, and made it like this quilt I saw in blogland.  There are only nine blocks, but they are huge, so the quilt ended up being pretty big. I rented a longarm and quilted Christmas trees & stars all over ( some designs are very forgiving, like this one). And I appliqued a folk art angel on the back – so cute!

  1. Oh my! You’ve been busy. Such gorgeous quilts. How lucky they are to have your beautiful quilt as part of their fundraiser.

  2. I like the star stitch on the baby quilt, no one but you will realize it might be a tiny bit crooked. Besides it shows that the quilt is handmade. You have such a good eye for fabric matching.
