2017 Charity Quilt Show


 1 Spiderman - actually it is a duvet cover that I made into a quilt simply by adding a backing and batting and quilting it.

 2 Scrapbook style  I had a whole bunch of kids' fabrics that I didn't know what to do with - so I made up this pattern - adapted from one I found on line (a freebie) to make it the European single size that is the most common size we give away.

My goal this year is to make 120 quilts for people in our area - either Poland or the Ukraine (my husband takes them when he goes over there to teach) during the calendar year 2017.

I'll be updating this "show" as I finish the quilts throughout the year.

If I am given tops that aren't quite a European single, I will add borders until they are big enough.  I've found here in Poland that many people don't really know what to do with a lap size - so I aim to make quilts the normal "single" size (140x200 cm) or a double/queen size.

During the calendar year 2017, I can tell already that I will have many tops (or at least the center of the tops) that have been donated for me to finish. I appreciate them all - it makes it "do-able" for me - and gives me time to make and design other quilts as well.

 23 I found the plaid patchwork in my fabric - probably purchased in the "lot" from the lady whose mom had Alzheimer's, so I just added borders until it was large enough. I thought some guy might like it.

 25 Just a piece of fabric with a print too large to cut up. I made it as big as I had the piece of fabric, figuring it for about a 3 or 4 year old, so the normal European twin wasn't really necessary.
