Mid Week Finishes

Thanks to one of my local quilters, I have a few finishes to share today.

Yep, we are STILL working on the Happy Block quilts.  This dinosaur themed quilt is quilt #68.  The blocks for this quilt were laid out by a neighbor boy named Jackson - he is a specialist on dinosaurs, so he was the right man for the job!  

Laura was kind enough to quilt this one up for me.  She used a new tool she ordered to make those wavy lines.  I think it looks great on this quilt.  She also sewed on the binding.

This quilt measures 48" x 56".

Quilt #69 is all about pirates!  I had a blast putting this one together.

On the back is the cutest fabric - dogs and cats dressed as pirates involved in all sorts of shenanigans.  I didn't have a huge piece, so I put a fabric with undersea creatures.

This isn't a big quilt at 40 x 48" but I didn't have any more "pirate" blocks and I didn't want some of these cute prints to get lost in another quilt.

Laura also quilted up this fun quilt.  I love the boxy design in red thread. This quilt top traveled a bit.  I think Judy sent it to Kat and Kat sent it to me.  She thought it might be more appropriate for an older kid.  I am sure it will be one that gets distributed quickly.  I don't often have larger kid's quilts.

A pretty blue backing that I think Judy sent in with the quilt top.  The quilt is all finished off with a red binding - also sewed on by Laura.

This quilt is about 65" x 72".

A huge thanks to all for helping get these quilts made.  I am really enjoying that all ages are getting involved and having fun with it.  So Many Hands and Many Hearts are involved!

These are so colorful and happy! What child wouldn't love a comfy quilt when they're in a drab hospital? I'm working on a scrappy project right now. It began as a doll quilt and has become large enough to be considered a toddler quilt. I'm wondering if it might work for your purposes. What's the right size child's quilt for the charity? Do you ever need a smaller quilt...say 25" x 30"? I bet that's too small, unless you ever give quilts for infants. I can enlarge it with a border. Or, I can give it to my friend who makes dolls. I have stuff to send you but passover is keeping me busy. Maybe early May I'll send you a box with everything. Meanwhile, I really look forward to your blog posts. Finally, I am loving your logo for Many Hands and Many Hearts. I think you found the perfect image...and colorful to boot!!

It's so fun to continue to see the Happy Blocks turning into quilts and gosh what perfect backing fabrics for these!

What a cheerful parade! And thanks for showing the quilting -- it's heartening to see quilting designs I may be able to do. How many Happy Blocks are waiting for settings?
