Charity Quilt Tops

Last week, I started working on two charity quilt tops.   You can read about them here and here.  I made big progress on them that I would like to share today.


Valley MQG Philanthropy quilt top.  After making 8 additional blocks and trimming all 20 blocks to unified size of 14", I put them on the design wall to see how they look together.  



With this layout, I'll get a 54" x 67.5" top, a very good size for a quilt.  I'll leave them there for a few days before I start piecing them together.  I might move some blocks around.

Then I worked on the Q4C charity quilt top.  I started cutting the fabric and made the blocks. 


This quilt top has only 1 block that repeats over and over.  By rotating every other block 90 degrees, we get this design.  This block is called Intersection block which was published in September 2021 in the MQG JournalMaking this block goes really fast and the finished size of the block is 12".  The final layout will be 4x5 which will make 48" x 60" quilt top.  It will be good for a lap quilt.  Big blocks make the quilt top come together in no time.  I don't know if I will put a border or not.  It all depends on how much fabric I have left.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting.

Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. I enjoy reading each and every one and will respond with an email. If you don't get an email response, it's probably because you're a "no reply blogger" and I have no way to contact you! If you don't hear from me, check back at the original blog post for my reply.
