    Three More Donation Quilts

    I've made a bunch of these the last two years. All 3.5" squares, and these have pieced backs and bindings as well. I've used a lot of scraps, but there are many more to use! The quilts are 62" x 74". I'll be taking them to the agency where I donate them later this week--just in time for their holiday giving.

    I do them as leaders and enders, so it's not as repetitive as it may seem!

    I like them.

    When someone says "quilt" - something like that comes to my mind.

    Love them all! So good of you to do this.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    The quilts are beautiful! I hate to admit I don’t know what leaders and enders means but it sounds very useful for using up scraps.

    Beverly-- typically leaders they are equal sized squares that you sew together before running your "good" fabric under the needle, which sometimes "eats" the corners." Enders are ones you can use after , although I've never had a problem once I've gotten started chain piecing. Eventually all the 2 patches add up to 4P, 9P, etc. So you are essentially making a second quilt as you make your current one.

    Thanks for showing your lovely patchwork quilts! I like the white or light squares beside the colorful squares. Looks like the other side of the quilt is more scrappy with all colors playing together. Thanks for sharing your projects! I have never done a scrappy quilt but now I feel inspired to start one. I like to buy 5"charm squares, so this would be a great project to give them a home. )
