This is one of the charity quilt kits that I cut and my Mum put together. I have pinned it and given it back to her for quilting. These were a combination of mine and donated fabrics, largely from a friend who has sewn and quilted for decades so has a great big stash!
This is another kit that I cut from my scrap bag. A lovely quilter in my group Pam made it up for me. Pam loves pastel colours so I choose to give her this kit. She did say that she wasn't thrilled with the dark purple and I tend to agree now its sewn...but too late I am not unpicking her good work!
Its a terrible photo, but the only one I have...I think its upside down?!?. I have sent the top off with wadding and backing to another local lady for quilting. But before that I did sew some background fabric on the sides to make the quilt a bit wider. This pattern is called Meet me in the Middle and I adapted it to fit the size scraps I had and desired finished size for kids charity. My mother came to the rescue yet again and donated this lovely pastel pink print on a cream background that I used for the borders and backing.
This top is not one I had originally cut as a kit. But there were 10" squares already cut in a box that were left over from a quilt I made quite a few years ago. I found them tidying up, plus my Twister ruler, so that seemed like fate!
I had purchased some new white fabric (small black pattern) for background on various scrap projects. That made a great border for this quilt top.
I really love this pattern and think if I can find more fat quarters that dont have directional prints I will make another one in the future.This top has not been allocated a backing yet. I have decided it doesn't need another border, but I will sew a 1/2" chubby binding on the front I think to give it a bright edge.
Happy quilting Sue.
