More Charity Quilting

My quilt guild, the Detroit Area Modern Guild, makes quilts for charity.  This year our quilts are going to a childrens critical care unit at Beaumont Hospital.  I finished up three quilts to donate.

This first quilt is a stunner.  Can you believe I made it with scraps from another project?  These are the squares I cut off from my Kimberly Einmo’s Chainsaw Quilt.  You can see and read about that quilt on my blog HERE.  One of our guild members, Barb DeVilbiss, quilted this one on her longarm machine.  Doesn’t her design really make the half square triangles look interesting?

This small baby size quilt is just strips of flannel with the raw edges out to fray and fluff up.  Super simple to make and so soft.

This quilt I made a little larger in hopes of having something to give to an older boy who might be in need.  This is the Ballerina pattern from JayBird Quilts.  This setting happened because I did not have enough of one basketball fabric to do the whole thing.  It really makes the quilt look special to have a basketball border at the top and bottom.  Barb DeVilbiss quilted this one as well.

Here is a picture of the tag we put on our quilts.  I really think it is a nice touch to add when we donate the quilts.

What kinds of quilts are you making for charity?
