New Charity Quilt Pattern

Last week the PCQ Community Service committee met and we scheduled the sew day projects through the spring. Several of the agencies we give quilts to need twin bed size which they use as actual bedspreads, so this year we're focusing on twin size quilts. For February we will be kitting up and sewing the new Four Patch pattern I've developed. My top will be the teaching sample for the sew day. 

We've been setting aside fabrics from the club's stash that are large enough cuts for borders. With the one shown here, we got lucky and it was an actual border print stripe. Most of the fabrics we've set aside are just random larger scale prints. The committee will pull coordinating fabrics to go with the borders and cut the squares for the kits. 

I've also been spending a lot of time writing the patterns for the projects we'll work on this year. Each kit will have the pattern included. I'll update the Free Charity Patterns tab above when I get a chance, once I'm sure the pattern is complete and correct. One of the committee members is currently testing it.

  1. That quilt looks very nice. It made me think of some blue and yellow fabric I have that would go great as a border on a quilt. Thanks for the inspiration from yours.

  2. This one is likely to get a lot of use - so versatile yet beginner easy. Well done, Jan. Quiltdivajulie

  3. That's a nice striking pattern. It looks more complicated than it is.
