    My Second Quilt For Ro's NY Homeless Veterans Charity-Scrappy+EASY

    I just finished my second quilt for Ro's Veterans Charity, will get them both in the mail Monday Morning! Started this one yesterday, so finished in two days. I call this my "Five Easy Pieces" Charity quilt pattern because each block has just five large pieces. I used more of the masculine fabric I had in my stash. I will post the directions for this one in the Tutorial Section of the Board. It finishes at a nice large throw size, 58" x 72". Great for scraps, fat quarters or yardage. I have also made it in pastel florals, brights and black and whites. Also good for larger print fabrics.

    Oh this is so pretty. I love that pattern, and look forward to seeing the tutorial. Do you have any pictures of others like this pattern you have made? You may have already showed them.

    No, JuneBillie, I made the others and donated them without taking photos. I have gotten better at taking photos to post, but back then, before I was active on this Board, I didn't do a very good job of keeping records/photos of my quilts.

    What a great charity quilt. It's so difficult to come up with a pattern and colors that work for a man's quilt. You did a great job.

    That is a great quilt. You do such nice work!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler

    I have plaids in my stash that I need to use up. Just wish I had the selection of brown that you seem to have. Very nice quilt. Look forward to bookmarking your tutorial. Thanks for sharing.
