Some more urban chickens…

As summer is coming to a close here in the US I took the opportunity to make the most of the sunshine recently and get some quilts photographed…. I actually have a stack of quilts finished but have not got all of them photographed.

I got a little bored with sticking the finished quilts on coat hangers and hanging them on the back fence so I have been venturing out with them when I can…

My latest adventure took me to the Oregon Coast with my cousin (aka. the quilt holder)…

This quilt was made at one of this years Charity Sew Days.  Actually we made two of these tops in one day.  This year the charity program has exploded in a wonderful way.

This is a fun block that I have made before but I love this all solids version.  The pattern was designed by my talented friend Michelle Friedman several years ago and you can find my step by step of it here…  We did vary the pattern a little, using pre-cut 3 1/2 inch squares instead of strips, but the result is pretty much the same.

I absolutely love the quilting on this quilt, done by one of our talented long armers, Nancy Stovall. She used fluorescent green thread which was a daring choice but works wonderfully with the quilt.

This quilt has now been labeled and set aside for next years Camp Erin.  The sister quilt, which was slightly smaller (4 blocks x 5 blocks) has already headed out to our local PICU.
