Welcome Home - Finished

Welcome Home 

This is a small quilt - 45" square - made from a few FQs I received in a STLMQG swap/challenge event a couple years ago, plus some stash. I don't know the name of the fabric line, so if anyone does, please let me know in the comments.
Welcome Home, Detail

It was pieced at one or another of my bee sew days and the top sat in a box for awhile. I had time in February so I got it quilted and bound. This quilt has always been intended as a donation quilt. I like that it's gender neutral and cheerful.

I was able to use up some stash for the backing, too.
Backing from Stash

Do you follow Sarah Craig's blog, Confessions of a Fabric Addict? Sarah hosts a quilt drive called Hands2Help every spring. One of this year's charities is the St. Louis International Institute, an organization that helps immigrants. Since I live in St. Louis, I'll choose this charity instead of mailing my donation quilts off to one of the other charities this year. I think the houses/trees/neighborhood theme of these prints are perfect, don't you? So I'm calling this quilt "Welcome Home."

I also finished my Boomerang Patches quilt in February:
Boomerang Patches Baby Quilt

It, too, is intended as a donation quilt. At about 36" x 46" it's a nice baby quilt size. For twice left-over and recycled scraps and 4-patches, I think it came together pretty well. I added the green/blue stripe from my stash to the boomerang patches so I could use it for the binding and it would relate. I do love a striped binding!

  3. How did the challenge go? Did you get Boomerang Patches done before your friend who challenged you?

  4. Such cute quilts. Congrats on your fun finishes.

  5. Great quilts! I especially love "Boomerang" baby quilt. It's so fun to look at! I just wanted to invite you to link up this post (and any other charity-sewing related post) to Sew Some Love every Wednesday :)

  6. Cute baby quilts. I will be donating a few fleece blankets and quilts to the organization in St. Louis also. I had volunteered there when they were resettling Somalians a some years ago.

  7. Love the baby quilt. The four patches make it fun, and I totally agree about the striped binding!

  8. Both quilts turned out beautifully! Congrats on getting both finished.
