Another Peaked insert quilt

Forgot that I hadn't blogged this peaked insert quilt either!  I made this one for a friend going through some health issues back in April!  She loves flowers so I found this 'panel' in my stash and cut it and added a purple sashing to make it big enough to equal a panel.  It really turned out like "spring" 🙂.

Single panel...they were printed two beside each other which was the perfect size.

I quilted this one overall with a funky flower pattern
Found a fun polka dot with all the colours for a backing and a perfect stripe for the binding. Amazing what's in the stash 😀

Farm panel comfort quilt

Last year, a friend in one of my quilt groups experimented with a way to use some of the many panels that have been donated to our small quilt guild.  We all loved the results and got her to demonstrate it at a retreat and then to come and teach it to us a couple of times.  These are addictive 😀.  I've already made a few (first one here) and finally got this one completed and off to the hospital.

Quilted this one with loops all over

Found a fun iris fabric in the sale bin for the backing

Comfort quilt

I'm woefully behind in my blogging again!  But, I have been very busy sewing up a storm! This summer I worked on quilting up some tops for our comfort quilt project for our local hospital.  I belong to two small quilt groups and we make lap quilts for the chemo unit of our local hospital.  

This quilt was put together with green and pink scraps that we had in the donated stash (along with a few others from my stash to get enough for the top).  This was a fun quilt to do.  I just quilted it myself with large loops down each row.

We had a lot of one floral fabric and used it for borders, but it needed a little more width, so it got dark grey half tumblers and also grey binding around it.
