Stripe Quilts Finished


Both of these girly quilts were made with the leftovers of other projects and some stash.  They will be given to children staying at Primary Children's Hospital for Christmas. I showed a sneak peek at the quilt tops in my previous post about my design wall.  The quilting makes a big difference!


This princess quilt was made with the leftovers of my princess pillow and my Floating quilt.


I had so much fun quilting it on my Tiara.


The backing was mostly left over from my Berry Pie quilt.


I love the pansies!



The binding was leftover from my Modern Farmer's Wife quilt


I love how this quilt turned out.

This rainbow quilt was made with the leftovers of Panda's Lego Rainbow and parts of a panel I found on clearance at my LQS a couple years ago.  I think the panel adds so much to the solids. The primary colors are wider than the secondary colors because I used a strip of the orange, green, and purple, for the borders of Mr. Bones. It worked out perfectly because three of the panel squares were bigger and three were smaller.

I quilted each colored stripe differently.


The backing is an old Hoffman floral I found in my stash.


It is so bright and cheerful!


I bound the quilt in a brighter yellow solid also left over from Panda's Lego Quilt.


This was such a fun quilt to make.

These were great stash busting quilts for a good cause.  I will share some more stash busting quilts next.

  4. I definitely echo what Cynthia said, these don't look like quilts made from scraps or leftovers! They are lovely and I am sure they will mean so much to the children who receive them.

  5. WOW!! These two are terrific ads for "the quilting makes the quilt"...as well as the backing--I'm like you in that I love beautiful backings that work with the front! What a change from seeing them on your oh-so-cool design wall in an earlier post. I also love that many quilts' scraps contributed to various parts of these new beauties. And then, you're donating them. Wow. So generous. (

  7. Both quilts are beautiful, but I absolutely love the one with the squares from the panel. I love how they seem to float in the stripes and the quilting around them is perfect. Great job, Jasmine!
