100 Quilts for Kids

My first quilt for 100 Quilts For Kids is ready to go. I'm donating it to Project Linus. The STL Modern Quilt Guild will be collecting quilts for kids at our October 13th meeting. There's still time to make a quilt (I hope to make at least one more!) and be eligible for some great prizes!

My quilt is the result of 3 UFO blocks that I had made to practice some paper piecing. I added some sliced coin rows to make it a decent size.


It was a great opportunity to practice a free motion quilting design from Angela Walter's book. I used "Concentric Circles" and was pretty good at them by the time I finished the quilt.


Finishing up a UFO, practicing some free motion quilting and giving to a child in need ~ that's a winning combo in my book!

  6. Cindy, that is such a pretty quilt and I love the colors too. Isn't Angela'and her book awesome. I had the opportunity to spend a day with Angela when she was here in St. Louis earlier this month lecturing and teaching at our long arm group. She showed all her quilts from her first book and those coming in Book #2. She showed how easily she does her designs on a dry erase board and on the long arm. She is a very good teacher. I'm motivated and now to see your UFO quilt just makes me want to search through my orphan blocks to make one too! Thanks for the inspiration.
