For those that were curious there are 199 quilts of all sizes in that closet in my last post! I posed an impromptu guessing game on Facebook but didn't tell people I was giving away a quilt! My son's classmate Chelsea guessed 198 and is thrilled to get a quilt. I still have to pick one out for her. They were co-valedictorians in high school and friends.
On Monday there was a request for 8 teen boy quilts for Camp Erin, a grief camp that will be held in mid July in Washington. They have more campers than usual and were short some quilts. I dug into my stash and came up with 8 fabrics and made this disappearing 4 patch quilt. I had a flannel for the backing on hand and have it ready for delivery tomorrow. I quilted it with an allover leaf and loop design. The quilting took about 30 minutes! I volunteered for this camp last summer and it was a very rewarding experience and wanted to be able to help out. I am not going this year. I took advantage of the hay bales in the field in front of our house, but the 100 degree heat is a bit much!
I quilted this strip quilt at the retreat last month, but finally got the binding on. I love this one and it is mostly leftover jelly strip pieces. I named it Leftover Salmon.
I took this picture on July 4th. This is one of my patriotic quilts. It was a block robin from 13 or 14 years ago. I made the very center vase/flag block and the rest of the blocks were made by others. I love this one! I didn't take any block closeups. I was involved with MANY round robins/row robins/blocks robins with this particular group fo women and the hand applique blocks are stunning!
