    some more charity quillts

    A friend found the patterns for the top two on the internet and showed me how to make them, but she didn't remember where the patterns came from. The bottom one (the shades of tan an white) is a 9-patch with 1/2 square triangles in two opposing corners of the block.

    I'll make the diamond scrappy again, but will figure out how to place the strips when making the block to make the diamond either dark or light and alternate these on the quilt. I think it will make the diamonds stand out more.
    Thanks for looking.

    When life gives you scraps, make a colorful happy quilt.

    all are beautiful! I am inspired to copy the scrappy one, but the tan on white gives me an idea. Thanks for sharing!

    Great designs. I learn so much on the charity quilts I do. They are a place to experiment and learn.

    Both are very nice! The top one is the '3 Dudes Block' from Missouri quilting. Just binding mine now.
