Donation Duo

My goal:
One DONATION quilt a month.
You know what???
I don't always meet my goal....
But THIS MONTH I did....
TIMES TWO!
Maybe I'll give myself extra points for being early too!!!
:)


It all started with these strips given to me...
Already sewn together!!!!

I circled a square of frogs with some of these
Piano key strips.
(I trimmed them to 6" wide.)

Then I circled a rectangle of frogs!!!

A 6" border of scrappy GREEN!!
bright. bright. bright. Right???

Some extra borders....and
VIOLA!!!

Guess what???
I have only little tiny tiny pieces of those piano key strips left!

Two little cuddly quilts.
Aaaah.....But they're not Cuddly yet...are they???

I'd better do some quilting!!!

  3. Those are adorable, Beth! Great job! I'm trying to get a linky party going for charity projects over at my blog, so feel free to link up! I thought it would be a fun way to share charity info and give people new ideas.

  7. That is the goal I set for myself this year also. Good for you, 2 at once. I love the lime. I try to include some in every quilt if I can.

  9. Some fortunate individual will love receiving these. If we added up all the donation quilts quilters have made... oh my, the total would be huge! One a month is a great goal.
