The plaid quilt that I showed last week is going to be part of a local auction to raise funds for hungry kids. While I am in the mood I decided to make some more comfort quilts to give away.
Several years ago I was taken by the striated batiks that were in vogue. I bought so many thinking that I would make landscape quilts or even mock Rail Fence using the stripes in the fabric instead of piecing in stripes as I had done before. I went through my stash and pulled out ones that I thought would work and of which I had enough. I had purchased smaller pieces and I needed at least a half yard for this purpose.
These are all going to be 40" x 50" and have to be backed with flannel because they will be used by cancer patients while undergoing chemotherapy. That was the request by the charity that will get these quilts. I went to Joannes this week to take advantage of their sale and picked some yummy flannels to be used as backing.
