I can not believe that we are already 13 days into September… this month is going way to fast for me. I have Bee blocks to do and quilts to finish and not a sewing elf in sight. Augh!
As September is slipping away I bustled this week to get a couple more quilts finished for the 100 Quilts for Kids project. I raided my pile of unfinished/nearly finished quilts and found two that I could easily complete without too much sweat, and that would be kid suitable.
The first quilt is my scrappy spiderweb quilt, which has been sitting waiting to be completed for over a year.
I really put a dent in my scrap pile with this little beauty. Lots and lots of different fabrics which means lots of “I spy” potential. It is a really fun quilt.
The other quilt I finished this week is a quick and easy wonky star quilt. I must admit wonky stars are my all time favorite “go to” quilt if I have to get something done in a hurry.
For this quilt I used a darling fussy cut novelty fabric for the center piece and then bright scraps for the star points. Most of these scrap triangles were left over from my “sparkle punch” wonky star quilt.
To back the quilt I used some bigger pieces from the same fabric range by Jone Hallmark.
Both these quilts side by side you can see which one I spent days and days making and which one was done in a few hours. In the end both will be loved and treasured in equal measure, I hope.

Love love love these. The children who get your quilts must feel so loved. They are so bright and cheery. I just love them. Both of these are adorable!!!
I machine bound the star quilt and kept thinking the whole time “This is not half as good as Ashley’s binding”.
Fabulous Cath…….and the little people who receive them will love them even more. Have a great weekend.
beautiful quilts, Cath! I’m sure they will be truly treasured.
Congratulations on your finishes! Love the wonky stars!
Love the wonky stars! I want to make one too!! ❤
They are so easy and fun and addictive. You should definitely make one. At last count I had made 9 wonky star quilts and I know there are more in my future.
Love both of them but especially the spider web quilt…beautiful!!
i love your finishes! And thank you for your lovely comments on mine! You show up as a no reply blogger to me, so I cannot reply to you as much as I would like!
It he whole blogger/Wordpress not communicating annoys me no end. I am yet to find a solution to it. I really do not want to be no reply. Augh. Thanks for stopping by though.
Love them both, but I’m a total sucker for wonky stars!
Great work, they’re sure to be loved!
Beautiful! SO kind of you to do!
(I happened to notice the comment ahead of me. As it turns out, it has happened to me a few times, google will occasionally decide I’m a spammer. It seems to happen to I make a moderate number of comments on various blogger blogs. The only way I’ve found to fix it is to go to my blogger account, switch it from google+ to blogger. If my blogger profile doesn’t have a link for “email me”, I’m no reply. I edit my profile, turn on show my address, and save it. Then switch back to google+ and all is well again. Sucks. I really wish blogger blogs would let me use my wordpress credentials.)
So do you have a WordPress blog and a Blogger blog?

I made a wonky stars quilt last year and it was pretty easy/quick. Maybe that will be my new baby gift go-to. I adore your spiderweb quilt, and there is a red and turquoise star in the header that is to die for!
I adore your use of bright happy colors!
Those are great quilts that the kids will love – the colors though bright are of a comforting hue. Lovely
I love your new header! Not sure when it went up, but it is lovely!!
Thanks Jessica. It went up Monday. I am slowly rearranging and changing.
These are adorable– love the stripey binding on the stars!! I know it’s not about the prizes, but if you want to post a picture of your 2nd quilt to facebook or flickr or another blog post and link up, you get two entries. And the prizes are fun. Thanks so much for linking up, too. Happy Sewing.
Those are so pretty! I bet it feels good to get something finished! it has been a while for me sadly but I am working on it.
