Blocks and Layout

Charity Quilts

Last December I created a list of 15 Quilty Resolutions for 2015. One of my goals for the year was to “give back” in the form of making a quilt for charity. When the hosts of the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers blog hop had the opportunity to extend the blog hop with the 2015 New Block blog hop, I was able to infuse the intention of the new block blog hop with turning the blocks into quilts to donate. Stephanie @Late Night Quilter collected all the blocks and I just received the grouping of blocks that I will be able to turn into a lap size AND a baby quilt to donate to Project Linus.

Thank you to everyone who contributed blocks for these quilts:

Baby Quilt (L to R, top to bottom)

I am excited to finish and donate these by the end of the year. 🙂

    It’s so great that you are working on quilts for Project Linus! I go regularly to our local chapters retreat days. In fact I spent this weekend working on quilt sandwiches. There was a call for more quilts for December. It’s such a worthy cause.

    The blocks work together so wonderfully! What fun and cheerful quilts they will make for Project Linus 🙂 I need to take the time to do some charity quilts in 2016. I have fabric for QOV quilts. . . I just need to get them made!

  12. Just spotted my block in the lap quilt layout, how exciting! Can’t wait to see all of the finished quilts. It was a really fun project and knowing they are going to a good cause makes it even better! :0) xx

    I LOVE how all the blocks look together! I’m so pleased that all our blocks are being used for this. I think it’s great that you’re also doing a baby quilt.

  14. Yvonne, I think that both of these quilts are spectacular! The bold and bright fabrics along with the variety of blocks really make these quilts outstanding! Just a few months ago, I joined our Grants Pass, Oregon Quilting Guild Project Linus. We meet once a month at the Fruitdale Grange and spend an hour sharing our projects that have been made and also share supplies that personally we have but are not using ourselves. Hopefully, someone else will be able to use them. I am so glad that I joined. It feels so delightful to give back to our community. I am focusing mainly on creating Teenage Boy quilts; after reading several posts and articles on the internet about the lack of quilts for this gender and age group. So, I applaud you for also sharing and creating quilts that are for Project Linus! They will definitely appreciated and loved by the receiver. Have a wonderful creative day!

  15. It’s great seeing them all together. You got a really good balance of the colors with the layout too.

    The new block blog hop was amazing and so is the quilt you are making with the blocks Yvonne! I spy a lot of favorites in there. 🙂

    I love seeing these blocks all together, but can’t wait to see how you quilt them.

  18. Can’t wait to see the finished quilt. Still amazes me that I designed a block.

    It’s so fun to see them all together. These are great compositions!

  20. They all look so great together! It’s kind of fun seeing my block pop up on your blog 🙂

  21. I identified Renee’s straightaway from the tent and the mountains!
    The blocks look great and coordinate so well. How did you get everyone to use the same colours? Did you supply the fabric?

    The blocks all wok so well together, they look like they’re going to become 2 lovely, bright, cheerful quilts.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
