It has been quite a while since I have posted photos of some of the charity quilts that members of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild have made, so I hope you will indulge me as I share some of the recent projects…
First up is a scrappy trip along top… the blocks and extra fabric was donated to the Guild by the wonderful Elsa and all I had to do sew the blocks together and make the back….
We put this top on the long arm at one of our Charity Sew Days and a number of people had a blast quilting flowers all over it….
And for the back of the quilt I pieced together the left over fabric and a few extra fat quarters and viola…
Another donation to the Charity program was a couple of charm packs of fun Bernstein Bear fabric, which were easily turned into disappearing nine patch blocks…
This fabric is so fun and bright not to much was need too make a fabulous kid friendly quilt…
And it would not be a Charity quilt showcase without some orphan block quilts starting with this fun number.
I love all the quilting on this quilt….each block has a different pattern but all the pattern use straight lines.
And last but not least is this orphan block quilt that one of our wonderful members, Juline, put together. I love Juline’s use of negative space with this quilt… she made a handful of similar blocks into a wonderful modern quilt.
I will try and get some photos of our group quilts up in the next couple of days as well, if the Portland weather permits.

Thanks for sharing – Lovely quilts and I always like to see what other people are creating 🙂
Considering I’m one of the chairs of the giving committee of our guild this year, I was interested and pleased to see these quilts. Lovely – thanks for sharing!
Inventive and attractive quilts from scraps and orphans: my kind of patchwork.
Beautiful quilts, and you and your fellow quilters are tireless workers for charity. That’s just as impressive as the beautiful quilts.
Beautiful quilts – I really love the Scrappy trip along quilt in the Indie fabrics!
Lovely quilts! Scrappy beauties!
Love your quilts. Really like the colors and the easy piecing style. Went back and looked at all your posts. Can you please start noting block size in your posts? (Sometimes you did. Sometimes you didn’t. And then of course there is always the quilt interpretation of what is actually a block.) Some of them it is hard to know the scale. I have started doing this in my own photos by simply taking a picture with a ruler marking one of the blocks. Picture with ruler really helps.
