    Two Quilts for Hospice

    Our quilting guild issued a challenge for every member to make a quilt for hospice this year. Using left overs from two Summer in the Park quilts, I made two quilts. (Okay, the backing and batting are new, but I bought those with a 40% off coupon.)

    Very nice quilts and so nice of you to do this for hospice. Hospice really touches my heart as they were beneficial to have both my mom and sister's wishes of dying at home happen. I recently started volunteering to visit to give back at least a little bit.

    They're beautiful!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    My husband and I both volunteer for Hospice. I have made several baby quilts for expected grandbabies that may never meet their grandparent.

    Very thoughtful of you and your guild.

    May I ask what the name of the second quilt pattern is?

    Hospice was there when my mother was dying. They allowed her to stay in her own home. Thank-you and your guild for helping them. Both of your quilts are lovely, but I really love the second one.

    How sweet of your guild to care about the patients in hospice care. My mum and dad volunteer every Sunday and have for over a decade. What lucky patients and families that will benefit from your loving and caring hands and hearts.
    Go forth and sew!

    Love them both but I really love the second one. Do you mind sharing the pattern? I think that one needs to be on my "To Do List".

    laceybritt and Tessa,
    This is the left over end pieces from the Summer In the Park quilts that I did, one for my DSD and one for my DD. Both of the girls wanted the same or similar colors, so the left overs worked well together. If you Google for Summer in the Park, you'll see that it is tube quilting, but there are left over ends, which I used in the second quilt. (There are a few pieces in the first quilt as well.) I suppose you could make the left overs by cutting the squares that you get for the SITP quilt in half. Anyway, there isn't officially any pattern. I just made it up after seeing the pieces that were left over. I actually like it better than the original Summer In The Park quilt - at least for a lap size quilt. It just may be too busy for a queen sized quilt.

    Your quilts are very pretty! Love the pattern, too. I don't think I've ever seen the 1st one before.
