Charity Quilt

I should have gotten a close up of this quilt but didn't.

This is a charity quilt I made for Orange Blossom Quilt Guild.

I quilted it in a varigated turquoise thread and it is all the white areas are quilted in feathers and striped areas are meandered. I was very happy with the way it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Quilting, Paula

Harvest is the quilt we will be working on in August. It is totally fall colors and just beautiful. I can't wait to make this one as I am a huge fall color fan.

I took some close up photos of the quilt so you could get an Idea of the different blocks.

Don't you just love this.

This photo shows a little bit of the quilting.

Strip Club July

July's strip club we showed off our quilts we made last month which was Braidwork. Boy did they ever turn out nice. The ladies did a great job. You will get to see some of the finished quilts later in this post.

Up first is (ta da) New tennies. They are not turquoise, they are more a light teal. Can't wait to see what is next.

Guess we girls are going to have to get into this shoe contest and start showing ours.

Jeremy is going over how to put together the August project "Lotus Blossom"

Here he is explaining about the mirror image.

The blocks he is using here are made by Corvette sewer. She is fast....

Here is a photo of some of the ladies hard at work.

more photos of the ladies getting some instructions.


First up is Kristen's quilt. Kristen selected a navy background for her quilt and it turned out just beautiful.

Here is Paula's with a light background.

Notice that both Kristen and Paula's are using the same outside border.

What a difference dark and light make on this quilt.

Here is Victoria's quilt.

Totally different lay out and border. She went with the 1/2 blocks in the middle and the full blocks on the outside. I like it. It pays to be a bit different.

Here is Laura's quilt. Notice she went with Brights.

With this quilt you can choose so many different colors of strips you can have any colors of braids that you want. Love the blue and green borders.

Here is Brenda's quilt. Brenda went wit a minty green background for her bright strips then her borders are green and purple. Hum.....wonder why purple? Love how it turned out. Of course it is quilted, bound and the works.

Here is Cheryl's quilt. King size of course. Her's is set off by the inner black border and the black binding. She also went with King size. Her's is also quilted and bound. Just over acheivers. LOL!

Jeannie was on vacation so did not get her's completed but I wanted to show you one finished block. Notice the background matrial. All those colorful flower petals. This quilt will be beautiful when finished. Can't wait so get busy Jeannie.

Denise shared her Heart quilt with us. She chose this black background for this quilt. It is another KING size. Now onto the borders.

I will be posting our next quilt in a different post. Have to go find the disc of photos.

Table Runner

This is a table runner made from scrap quilt pieces. The strip club (we use 2-1/2" strip pieces ) I belong to sometimes has larger pieces of leftovers from cutting their quilts. I used several of these leftover pieces to make this quilt. The strips were sewn together with three strips to a sew then the quilt pieces were cut. You see the diagonal seams? That is where I sewed the pieces together, then just alternated sewing the sets of three together. I added borders then quilted. Super fast table runner.

Here is a close up of the quilting I did on this table runner. I was practicing my quilting. I made some feathers, some circles, clam shells and a few other try them out stitches that I don't know the names of.

It was fun and I was happy with the results.

Charity Quilts

I worked on a few more charity quilts that will be turned in to night at Guild.

This first quilt was made using swap blocks. The blocks were all the same block made by different people from all over the country. It turned out to be a fun quilt. Hope who ever get it enjoys it.

This quilt was my hubby's favorite out of the four
It was the colors in it. He really liked the oranges.

It is bright and cheerful.

Ths quilt will be a fun quilt to cuddle up under
With both pink and blue in it it can be used for both a boy or girl.

This last quilt has lots of different blue in it.
It is big enough for a lap quilt for an adult or a great quilt for a child to wrap up in.
