    Does the quilt have a pattern name? I like it and it would be an easy one to use up scraps. My sister in law makes lots of quilts to donate and I think she would like this pattern. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful quilt for a wonderful cause. I, too, prefer to hand in completed quilts.

    Well, it is basically the Double Slice Layer cake from Missouri Star. The only difference is that I didn't buy a layer cake. I just used fabric I already had, five fabrics to be exact. I cut 8 ten inch squares of the focus fabric and 3 ten inch squares of four other fabrics. That made a youth sized quilt, after I added borders ( 44 x 45). Of course, the ten inch squares are cut down, so it sure would work well for scraps. Let me see if I can find the video...

    I like the colors a lot, they sure scream spring. You did a nice job on the design and piecing too. Kudos.

    Well, don't worry about what others say, you know why you made the quilt - for charity, for someone who does not have their own quilt and will be proud to have one of your quilts. You are being very generous with your time and talent. Keep up with your good works. Besides, your beautiful kitty has given their approval to the quilt. Reminds me of one of our first cats, cute.

    Very nice quilt, don't worry about what others think and if anyone praises you, say a simple "Thank You".

    Thanks. Such a simple solution...I really appreciate it. I will no longer worry about this. (I am serious, I had not thought of just saying "Thank you."

    Any thing you put together and make for someone else will be appreciate it. We with the group of ladies in Lancaster, NY have been making pillow cases, baby quilts, lap quilts and bigger for those that need or want one, including seniors. I do have to say all this putting together is making all of us better people. I know for myself that when we are done for the day, I feel better on my way home. I just have to make sure someone put out the garbage the day before and remembers to bring in the container for next week. I know I will find a way to fill it up.

    Nicely done. I am certain it will be appreciated. If we can't go our own way with quilting, when can we?
