Twin sized charity quilts

Once I was in an exchange of nine-patches and they have languished in a box with other orphans. I put it together a month ago and now it is back from the long-armer, ready to go to Pine Ridge reservation to help keep someone warm this winter. I got the scrap binding on this afternoon.

And here is the back, made of fabrics I was ready to toss.

There is another one I hope to finish the binding tonight. I got the binding made during the end of "La Boheme" on NPR. Charlie is making dinner (Saturday night regular event) so I can go and work some more right now.


Got it done and took this photo on the deck stairs after dinner. Based on Bonnie's Scrappy Bargello, but more strips to make it bigger to make it twin/bunk size. The border is Railroad tracks fabric

(ALL of yesterday's rhubard crisp was et at the potluck. None to bring home. But I had made a tiny one as well and we just had it as a late snack tonight.)

Those charity quilts look really nice! Someone will love to get them. I especially like the 9-Patch one! You've got a couple of surprises in there. Cute!

I love the ninepatch with the other random blocks sprinkled in.

I am loving that 9 patch quilt - I have a bunch of 9 patch blocks.... can I steal the setting?

How funny ... just catching up on your blog and read about your quilt using up some old swap 9 patches. I've just made a donation quilt with some too, might have been the same swap!! Then I read your rhubarb receipe and I've been cooking up a batch of homegrown rhubarb whilst I've been browsing blogs too. Might have to give your receipe a try.
Thanks for sharing :)
