Charity Quilts for Clark County Quilters

Clark County Quilt Guild is a large Quilt Guild that does a lot of charity activities.  These two quilts are probably going to the Share House that serves Homeless Families.  They are currently raffling off a quilt that proceeds will go to Clark County K-9 Unit.
I enjoy doing these charity quilts.

Very eclectic and colorful quilt everything from Betty Boop, rockets, and cats

I decided to to one of my modern patterns

Everything from swirls and waves 

To rectangles and more waves

As you can see the back is very busy

A cute flannel quilt made of all sorts of baby prints.

I love quilting circles on baby quilts.  When they are washed they are so bumpy.

The back has the dots and the quilting ties it all together.

Colors and Big Impact

Some times we forget what colors and print scale  can impact in a simple pattern

3 Quilt of Valors

These are three Quilt of Valors from Southern California.  It is unusual to get QOV's that are not red white and blue.  Even the Service Women want the US colors.  So here they are.  

used the toucan and jungle leaf quilting pattern

I like the use of half square triangles.  

The toucans in the quilting.

These are Batik fabrics.

I love the dark almost black purple in this pattern

The quilting is called calm waters.

This quilt almost looked like a Irish Chain.  It also looks like a pinwheel in the center of Log Cabin type squares.

I used yellow thread.  There so many reds that the yellow matched many of the pinwheels.

border treatments

The back is hard to see in pics but is spectacular in person.

Baby Clothes

Beautiful full polka dot dress so cute.
A huge box of baby clothes arrived from  the sister in law of a family friend that we consider  family.  I stared at the box for probably a week.  It was so hard to cut those cute clothes.
