Woosh! And just like that, the summer came and went. I had such grand ideas and such small accomplishments.
My number one goal was to finish these quilts that were made with the women from the Faith Circle of Do.Good.Stitches, a quilting bee on Flickr. Everyone contributed blocks and I had the privilege of assembling the quilts.
The above quilt was made with scraps of all kinds, including a variety of whites on the front, which is hard to see. The backing was from my stash. I used a wavy zig zag line to quilt the quilt. I love the texture that is created from this stitch and it is a quick way to finish a quilt.
For the second quilt, everyone made scrappy color coordinated rows and then I added the triangle block to make them look like crayons. The sashing and the backing were sale fabrics at my local quilt shop, Circa 15. One unfortunate postal event led the last row to be added to the backing before finishing the quilt.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to these quilts! Both quilts will be donated to a local YWCA chapter that aids women and children in need and distress.
