One of the PCQ members who is already certified on the long arm quilted my Strippy HST tops when she was doing some charity quilting. She used an allover meander, perfect for these. Whoo-hoo, they're now finished quilts.
The one on the right is the original class sample, with the blocks made correctly with the strips going in the right direction. The one on the left is the one where half the blocks have the strips going in the wrong direction. Can you tell? Maybe if you search.... Does it matter? Not at all.
These are quilts for kids. They're going to the local family services agency. These two have mostly prints that will appeal to an older boy, but there are other quilts being made by others in the club that have gender-neutral or more juvenile or more girly prints. Most of the fabrics in these two samples were mine but the rest of the quilts made by the others use fabrics from the club's stash. The backings for these also came from the club's stash.
I still need to put the club's label on the backs. I'll do that, but then think I'll hold on to them until the club meets live in June and the chair of the Community Services Committee can show them for Show and Tell. (Imagine - a live guild meeting!!! )
If you or your charitable group would like to make donation quilts using my Strippy HST blocks, you can find the tutorial here.
So, I have not one but two donation quilts for kids. Maybe they'll go to twin boys. But like the boys, each quilt is unique; the boys will be able to tell them apart so each gets his very own.

The quilts look great! Two finishes! Way to go!ReplyDelete
LOVE these quilts, Jan!! I believe the "wrong" direction doesn't read as being a mistake. Looking forward to seeing the Club quilts.ReplyDelete
There is definitely no way I'd know that the quilt on the right has blocks that weren't rotated on purpose. They look great and I like that you arranged the blocks differently between the two as well. I bet there are lots of fun arrangements that will be explored by the group!ReplyDelete
Great quilts! Thanks for the tutorial!ReplyDelete
What a great stash buster pattern. Nope, it did not make one difference that the blocks were sewn going different directions! Thanks for the link to the pattern.ReplyDelete
