Quilts & afghans & blankets ... oh my!

We received some lovely donations recently! This bright quilt of old-fashioned transportation is certain to we appealing to a young child.

And here's a simple panel with some very huggable animals on the front ...
...and on the back!
You may recognize this lively top from when it was hanging in Sew Sassy. Marion donated it to be quilted and bound for Project Linus.
Joan F brought in two baby-soft knit afghans.
And Tina made a toddler blanket -- quick and easy and cute! One side is cotton with all sorts of animals, and the other side is soft flannel with little monkeys. So much fun!

Thank you all for your wonderful donations!

Fish blocks!

There are some very cute fish swimming in this sea!Thanks, everyone, for all your fish block contributions! These are just a few that we have received from you. Tina is going to be able to make several tops from these.

Cute quilts

We've received lots of cute quilts! Here's a fun strip quilt with Snoopy characters.
Diane M made this very sweet quilt with blocks of old-fashioned children.
This flannel quilt with a fuzzy fleece backing has hearts hand-quilted in the squares. It was very lovingly made!
Karen M and Dorothy B made this 9-patch quilt. There are beetles in the border fabric and the backing is bright, jumping frogs!
Diane L made this delightful quilt of jars filled will all sorts of things!

The next 3 quilts did not load properly and I can't fix them! So sorry -- you'll have to turn your head to the left to see them the right way round. There's a plane and train quilt:
And a checkerboard panel quilt from a committee kit. This quilting on this one haslots of flowers, very nice!
Theresa L made this heart quilt from an adaptation of a Billie Lauter pattern. Dorothy E quilted it with hearts all over!
Here's another Easy Squares quilt made from a variety of prints. It's a very adaptable pattern!
We received a panel quilt, which is easy to put together but very well loved by the recipient! If you want to make a donation and don't have much time, please consider finishing a pre-quilted panel.
This cozy bear flannel kit was nicely quilted by Dorothy E.

Thank you everyone!

More 2007 Camp Coco quilts

We have such a generous membership in our guild! Lots more Camp Coco quilts were turned in for this summer's campers. I can't always match the name to the quilt in the photo, so many of these do not have a quilter's name. If you know who made one of the quilters whose name was omitted, please let me know and I will update this post. Thanks to everyone for these wonderful quilts!

This S'mores quilt was made by Debbi D.

Kim L made the dog quilt.

Linus Committee doings

Our raffle quilt is coming along! Since this photo was taken, all three missing blocks have been finished. Dixie is busy completing the top and then Connie L will quilt it. Cute, isn't it? Ami Simms graciously gave us her written permission to use her Dog-Yeared quilt pattern to raise money for Project Linus. You can see her pattern on her website -- check it out! Sew Sassy will display the quilt in their window starting in January. Be sure to buy a raffle ticket!
The Committee also put together a bunch of Happy House blocks at the June worknight. Soon we'll make these into a quilt.
The house blocks have some quick corners, so we stitched the leftovers together to make some half square triangles. Waste not, want not!
