    Two Linus Project quilts finished

    The first one is based on an earlier post here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t218800.html I had this beautiful fabric and could not figure out what to do with it and saw this post...perfect!!

    I had wondered what a disappearing 4 patch would look like using different fabrics...at the Linus Project meeting last month I picked up "kit"....there were 60 5" squares....what an opportunity!!! MQC has a tutorial on the d4p.

    The Linus Project (based on the character, Linus, from Peanuts) is to help children by providing blankets for comfort, security and warmth. All the materials are donated. I did not expect by joining this wonderful group of ladies that I would get so much out of it!!!

    Very striking quilts. I'm playing with the disappearing four patch idea. I like your use of two (one of them looks like two!), three and four color blocks!!
    If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours!

    Great idea - I'm going to have to try the D4P and the D9P - those are such simple quilts that look so difficult!

    Neat quilts! Great idea on the D4P.......I may have to try that with a pile of 5" squares I cut from scraps with my Go!

    Same here. I really like the d4p. Have never made one. Something else to add to the list.

    Love the FQ quilt....went back and looked at the referenced post....great idea and one I'll file away to use. And love the D4P one too! I started one for a swap on another sewing list but just couldn't get it the right size--needed scant 1/4" seams and couldn't do it so stopped because they had to be the right size to match the other blocks. Want to finish it for myself some day but really like the one you did with the different bright fabrics!

    Both are great quilts. I need to put a disappearing 4 patch on my list of quilts to do.

    I'm beaming with delight that you used the design from my easy fat quarter child quilt posting, too. That made my day! Thanks!

    You had the most wonderful idea for a fabric that kind of tells a story....I have enough of that fabric to make another...also have one of frogs in ponds that I will do one from that also....THANK YOU!!

    wonderful quilts - I really like the sashing on both quilts, thank you for the reminder to try new things and to help others. Your quilts will make some children feel very special, comforted and safe. I have made little ditty bags to go with the small quilts for special toys or toothbrush, wash cloth, small first aid kits for disasters. The bigger the quilt, the bigger the bag.

    I love the Linus Project. Expo in Portland wasn't half as much fun as all we could do was pick out colors this year but not sew the blocks together as we had in previous years. Great job.

    Your quilts are wonderful! I don't think I would be quilting today if it hadn't been for Project Linus. That is where I got my start. The people are wonderful, and the quilts that come in are inspirational!

    So nice! I thought Project Linus was just a place to drop off quilts to be distributed. Now I really need to get down to my local group!

    I am so glad you are enjoying getting involved with Project Linus I'm involved with PL in Sonoma County and I find it very rewarding. And my daughter is heading to UC Davis this fall!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    There is just nothing like a quilt to snuggle under--I bet the children really love these.

    Thank you! That pattern does work well with "scenics" - never thought of them as telling a story, but, in their own way they do.
