A week of outreach quilts

Since I returned from Paducah, I have been working feverishly to finish some client quilts and a group of community outreach quilts.  On Wednesday next week, we will be donating a large group of quilts to Victim Services and another six to eight quilts to the group Women in Crisis.

One of my goals as chair of the community outreach committed was to use the stash we had on hand.  During the winter, we had a few cutting days when we cut all of our scrap flannel pieces into tumbler blocks, using my AccuQuilt Studio cutter.  Then we sorted the fabrics into 30 color coordinated packages of 100 tumblers, When set 10 across and ten down, they make a quilt about 44 by 60 inches.  Members of our guild then signed out the kits and assembled the quilt tops and returned them for quilting.

Here are the resulting tops, now quilted.  They went out yesterday to other guild members, Joan, Kay and Judy for binding and labeling.  These all will be donated on Wednesday to Victim Services.

I’m delighted with the wonderful quilts made from a pile of seemingly chaotic scrap.  Don’t they look great?

    Lovely quilts, so colorful ! I so enjoy the tumbler block. I have made a baby quilt using charns in a dino pattern, and have just finished an American flag wallhanging using a patriotic charm pack. Such fun!!!
