    The Texas Linus Connection celebrates their anniversay in October each year and they have packets of fabric that you must use to make a quilt/quilts. Well, this year it was batiks, I took a brown fabric bag and ended up making these 3 quilts. They were fun, it was challenging to use all the fabric and come up with different designs. I also completed them on my machine which was another challenge for me. Carol

    Would you mind sharing the pattern for the third one?? It is really pretty. Probably could figure it out if I tried real hard but would appreciate some measurements. Thanks.

    For all who are asking about quilt # 3 - now my favorite pattern - its a modification of a McCall's online pattern based on their China trip. It is called "Doorway to China Quilt Block" It was for a wall-hanging and I just enlarged the sashing and added more rows.
    Every so often I mess up and forget to put the sashing on before I do the large piece but it still turns out okay.
    I have made my pattern fabric 3 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches for the center pieces, I made the sashing 2 inches by 8 1/2inches. That makes the center. Next is a top and bottom sashing 2 inches by whatever your width turns out to be - actually I just cut strips the widths I need and start sewing, ironing and trimming.
    When I add the last row, I measure, take away sashing measurement and divide into 3.
    This makes about a 38 x 45 inch quilt top (adding that extra row)
    Sometimes I vary the width of the sashing and will even make it 3 inches if I want a wider and longer quilt.
    I hope this all makes sense. I found that if I numbered my pieces on the pattern it helps keep everything correct. Carol

    Thank you all for looking and inquiring. I was pretty excited about how they turned out.
    Quilt # 1 pattern is "Cracker"
    Quilt # 2 pattern is - I can't remember or find it right now but its a center piece that is about 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 and 2 outer pieces are appear to be 2 x 6 1/2, all small blocks made the same and then rotated into a larger block
    Quilt # 3 pattern is a modification of McCall's free pattern "Doorway to China Block"
