Monday Making

This month my quilting guild handed out bags of fabric.
The challenge was to make one charity quilt using the fabric in the bag.

This is the end result of playing with fabric in my bag.

I enjoyed using this mix of orange!
What a fun FALL quilt!


I cut the fabrics into strips 2-3" wide (width of fabric)
I sewed 3 strips together and cut them 3" wide on a 45 degree angle

I just sewed them into long sections before joining them in long rows.

Since the small strips were different sizes...
I did not match seams.

When they were all about the same length...
I straightened it up.

Very simple.
Not a lot of brain power.

MY kind of quilt. get it quilted before the meeting!

What are YOU making this week??


  1. Great use of a grab bag of colours, bravo!!!

  2. There are some challenging fabrics in that bag. You used them very effectively. Beautifully done!

  3. It looks great, I never would have thought of such a quick project. Thank you for the linky party.

  4. I like it!!! It looks much more complicated than your description makes it sound. Love the colors!

  5. Definitely a fun quilt, and I LOVE it! With all the beautiful oranges, it's like autumn leaves on the ground!

  6. Wow! You certainly made good use of that fabric and it doesn't look like an easy make to me!

  7. Your finish is beautiful! I'd say you met and exceeded that challenge.

  8. What a fun way to spend a day. That quilt is beautiful and definitely perfect for fall.

  9. That's really fun. Any thoughts on how you will quilt it?

  10. And boom! Another quilt top is done. I enjoy making quilts from challenge bags. I've got a dog fab and a bunch of go with beiges and browns in the current bag. I'll be figuring it out in Jan/February. You did a great job with these. I would never have thought of making those chevrons they way you did. Great job.
