Charity Quilts made with the help of Brisbane Modern Quilt Guild

I finished working on two quilts for the local modern quilt guild.  May was my month for the charity quilt and I chose Wonky Stars.  Members made blocks and returned them to me;  they all did such a wonderful job with there blocks.  I designed the layout and pieced the top with scraps of navy from the group scrap bins and my own scrap bins.   I ended up with enough to make a twin and a cot size quilt.  Awesome.


The small one is 37" x 43"

The large quilt is 63" x 81".

I quilted them on my Juki TL2200-QVP using rulers so make the arcs and straight lines.  I have to say these are the quickest quilts I have ever done since I left lots of space between the stitching; they came off the frame in no time.

I used scrapes from my bins to make the binding for both quilts too.  I think the scrappy binding was the perfect finishing touch for these quilts.

Now these are ready to be delivered and hopefully will make people smile when they snuggle in them.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.

Cheers,
Abby
