I have been pretty productive this weekend, and finished my Stacked Squares quilt yesterday. We've been getting lots of rain, so I hope it will dry out enough to squeeze in a photo shoot. I do have a couple of things to share with you though. A couple of weeks ago, I finished up a couple of donation quilts that I'm giving to the local children's hospital for preemies, and I just realized that I never posted about them!
This rainbow quilt was so quick and fun! When I made the backing for Shattered Rainbow, I ended up with a perfect sized piece of each fabric. I hated to put them into my scrap jars, so I decided to make a mini rainbow quilt, and give it a little bit more interest by doing a strip and flip.
Since these preemie quilts are small (36ish inches), I did solid backings on them, and I absolutely LOVE the rainbow flower print I found for this one! The front is so straight and square that I think it's the perfect compliment!
You may remember my second preemie quilt from my stop on the Fat Quarter Style book tour. I made the Tapestry block, and although I would have loved to make an entire quilt, my beginning of school schedule just would not accommodate.
I think the Chic Flora fabrics look great in this block, and I like the style of the block with the borders. The shape of the block, with the star in the middle almost have a medallion feel. With the borders, it is a perfect size for a preemie quilt, and I was able to use some Kona Navy that was in my stash.
This one got a sketch print backing in that pretty shade of cornflower blue. Since these are so small, I didn't label or name them, which felt totally wrong. You know I always label and name my quilts!
