This is the current pile of quilts ready to go to Missouri with me in March. So far, I've finished 1 Veteran (widow) quilt and 3 baby quilts to give to the guild to donate in support of our charities. I may be able to squeak a couple more out before I go.HST/4-patch (widow) quilt on the bottom when I finished it. Now I'll tell you a bit about the other 3 baby quilts, but there's not really much to tell...

I've been really enjoying blowing up traditional quilt blocks into "big block" quilts. It's too much fun tripling a 12" block into a 36" block and that's exactly what I did here with a paper pinwheel block. Many of the donated fabrics were odd sizes. These trucks on the blue background was a piece of fabrics that was fussy cut, so chose a pattern that I could cut the pieces between fussy cuts...challenging but fun! This is every last bit of the trucks on white background fabric...it was a little rectangle that I measured to see how small I would have to cut this tiny border. It's all about using up that box of donated scraps!
For the binding, I knew I wanted to use this rainbow stripe that was in the box, but when I use a piece I really want to finish it up if I can. Well, I pieced the rest of it and the last couple of pieces of the truck fabrics into that striped backing! So fun!
