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.








________________________Later

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 :)
