More downsizing and clearing out of stuff has resulted in a couple of UFOs going to new homes. These two went to Covered in Love hosted by Kat and Cat Quilts.
Olive Basket Weave: these blocks were made by the Sew Bee Its last time I handed out. They knew they were making blocks for a donation quilt. Along with this top, I sent backing fabric and binding strips. The backing is the same low volume newsprint print used in the blocks and the binding is a very dark purple.
Keep Positive: I always enjoy making Plus quilts because it's all about the fabrics. This was also always intended to be a donation quilt, but it didn't get finished in time for last spring's Hands 2 Help quilt drive. I sent backing and binding for this one, too. The backing is grey Grunge and the binding is the last of the Paddington Bear print that I had.
I had the pleasure and entertainment of designing and piecing these tops. They fulfilled their purpose for me. They were both always intended for donations. I'm so glad I was able to send them to someone who can finish them and give them to families losing loved ones.
