Charity Quilts

During the month of January I sewed three charity quilts. A friend was given a fabric stash of a quilter who had gone blind. She asked for help in sewing the fabrics into charity quilts. I took home a bag of 6" squares. The individual fabrics were not all that beautiful, but I managed to use them to make three attractive scrappy quilts.

Disappearing Nine Patch
These pictures were taken while the blocks were hanging on the design wall; I did not get any photos of finished tops. I dropped these off at my friend's house; she long-arm quilts, binds, and donates them to needy organizations. 

Each quilt is lap-sized; I have enough 6" squares to make yet another quilt, but I have put them away for now. I am in the planning stages for graduation quilts at our church.
