Charity Quilting

I have been enjoying making quilts for Heartstrings since the big snowfall in Dec. I have finished 2 Happy Block quilts, 1 QOV, and I have another Happy quilt to quilt and a string top.'s time for pictures.

First is my Happy quilt for a girl to be donated to Sally House. I like the purple border and binding.

Second is my first Quilt of Valor. I love the block I put in the center. It is from Judy Martin's book Scrap Quilts. The border is from a Quiltmaker magazine paperpieced pattern. I was tired of thet pattern by the time I made all those 6 inch blocks, but I sure like the effect around the inner blocks.

Third is a Happy quilt with a novelty border. I had several novelty squares left over and I did not wasnt to make anymore happ blocks, so I cut them in 1/2 and sewed them all into a border. It turned out pretty wild, but the thing grew on me after I quilted and bound it.
