TGIFF - HST Baby Quilts for Charity

I have this habit of making quilt tops and then putting them away before they are quilted.  Piecing is my favourite part of quilting, the actual quilting not so much.  There are so many patterns  I want to try -- I just keep making tops...and more tops...and more tops.

I finished two baby quilts that are destined for our local children's hospital.  These tops were pieced back in May, but they were put away and forgotten about.

Kona:  Deep Blue, Torch, and Shadow




The HST's were made from the cut-off corners from this commissioned quilt.

  3. They look super cool - so striking. I know what you mean about piecing and then not quilting, I have the same issue sometimes!

  4. I have the same problem, I love piecing but put off the quilting! Although I don't have room to store pieced tops so that forces me to finish them (eventually)!

  5. They look great! I love how just two triangles of a different color can make such a difference in the quilt!

  7. Twins! Congratulations, Anja! Both are really sweet. And will be greatly appreciated. I feel the same way about quilting. That's why I use those organic wavy lines so much. Fast and finished is good!
