donation quilts and batiks!

When I went to my quilt guild and met about our BOM’s for next year, they were talking about donation quilts and how they need more quilters.
I used to grab some once in a while, but it had been a long time- or so I thought, so I grabbed 4, here’s the first 2 Smile
A fun pinwheel quilt

This one was FPPed, do you see how the blocks are placed on the quilt?

I tried to do lines WITHOUT a ruler on the blocks and meandering on the green and lines and a vine on the borders

Last week I also got another shipment of fabrics from Island batiks!
DROOL!! now I need to “think” about WHAT to make with them.

I’m working on 3 secret quilts for them and I named one “Let’s dance” and then I found this dancing bear on my computer and embroidered it on the quilt label.

Lovely charity quilts, beautiful batiks and what a cute label. That bear is so sweet. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these lovely fabrics.

I absolutely LOVE that FPP quilt, I don't know why stars do it for me, but they do! The layout is great too. Another triumph Bea, not sure how you could bear to part with it though.
