Keys to Contentment - Block 3

The March block is stitched up and stashed with the others.  When all 9 blocks are done, I hope to frame them into a colorful wall hanging.  You can see all the blocks together on this  PAGE  .




You can get these patterns for yourself, by visiting Val Laird's blog button in my left sidebar.

I'm linking up with Kelly at My Quilt Infatuation where you'll find many other quilters sharing their projects.

CCQ # 17 - Quick Strippy

Here is another what I would term 'quilt in a day' pattern.  This one is called the Quick Strippy - a pattern found at www.maryquilts.com.  Mary shares a lot of free patterns there.  I had a piece of fleece donated from my quilt club, to use for backing, so I altered the size of Mary's pattern to fit this piece of fleece.

You can finish more comfort quilts when you choose patterns that let the fabric do all the work.  This little quilt is 37 x 44.



Be sure to visit my  CCQ  page to see all my charity comfort quilts.

I'm linking up with:       Judy at Patchwork Times    

                                     Connie at Freemotion By The River  

                                         and         Quilt Story

 I hope you'll visit these sites to enjoy many more creative quilters and their projects.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

CCQ # 16 - Poo Bear

I belong to the UMW Ladies Circle at my church.  This year we are having a  fall - winter fundraiser to provide for local missions.  One of the ladies donated a piece of poo bear fabric.  The fabric looked all green to me, so I decided to break it up by adding a top piece and a cuddly sleeping bear.  I backed it with a blue fleece.  It measures 41 x 57.




You can see all my charity comfort quilts on the  CCQ  page.

I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times  and  Connie at  Freemotion By The River  where you'll find other great quilters sharing their projects.
