    2 WIP charity quilts

    I have had several WIPs that were on hold because I fell and injured my wrist a bit. I could not do ironing or quilting. Today, a friend did the ironing for me. These will be fore the rehab hospital that did such a wonderful job with DH after his recent stroke. I gave them one and we promised them 5 more.

    They are wonderful, so graphic. I love the stars, the setting in the first, and the unusual star in the second. Very very sharp

    Thank you.
    The center of the first is an exceptionally pretty cheater block from a garage sale (a guild sister is having to give up quilting and is selling off her stash Most of the fabrics in these 2 are from that garage sale.). Another of my WIPs uses the same cheater block. My LQS recently had fabrics with 2+" longitudinal stripes of patriotic designs. I took 2 of those stripes and subcut 45* diamonds to make that star. I had not done this before, but I surely will again.

    Really like these quilts. Favorite is the second one love how you did the star. Does this star have a name or did you just wing it? Hope both you and your DH and doing better. BrendaK

    BrendaK, the star is actually a LeMoyne, whichis made with 45* diamonds. What makes this look unusual is the fact that I cut my diamonds across 2 stripes of fabric. One could, of course, get the same effect by sewing 2 long strips together then cutting the diamonds.

    These are FABULOUS! And I agree... nothing is poopier than having things you want to work on & not being able to! But you're luckhy to have a quilting pal to help you out. It's a circle, isn't it? She helps you, you help the facility, they help your DH, it just goes round & round... perfect!

    Yes, it is a circle. She and I often help each other out. Now that my wrist is mainly back up to par, I finished off the rest of the quilts and will deliver them this week.
